Vincent Anthony Michel, born December 24, 1997, and passed on July 8, 2023. Vincent was born in Portsmouth VA, and resided his entire life in Akron, OH.
Vincent is survived by his parents Danielle and Stephen. The best brother, Nicholas (Haley) and his favorite nephew Jameson. Grandmothers Sandi, Roseann (Bub), and Fran. His brother Zach, and sister Simone. Aunt Jamie, her sons JR and Michael, Uncle Christopher (Melissa) cousin Emma and his Goddaughter Katie, and countless other relatives and friends.
Even throughout his struggles with mental health and substance abuse Vincent remained a gentle soul who didn’t know a stranger. In the words of his brother Nicholas, “I’m going to miss all your funny little sayings like ‘You think you’re better than me?’ Or ‘Are you my dad?.’ You would give the shirt off your back or money to anyone in need even if you didn’t have it to give. You were such a beautiful soul inside an out. I’m going to miss hearing you say ‘I can’t believe you are a dad or thank you for bringing this beautiful baby boy into the world. I’m happy you are at peace, love you Brother”
