Vincent A. Filpi III

Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Vincent A. Filpi III, age 41, died on March 23, 2011, as a result of a non-combat related incident. He lived in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. 

Vincent Filpi was assigned to USS Enterprise as an aviation ordnanceman. The Enterprise is currently deployed to the Fifth Fleet’s area of responsibility in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.

Vincent leaves behind a wife and six children.

Holy Mother,
pray for Vincent.
Mother, ask our
Father to send
Vincent to paradise.
“Vince loved his country and paid the ultimate price to ensure our continued freedom,” said his wife, Erica Bruder-Filpi. “While our grief is immense we will forever thank him and all other military members.”

Vincent Filpi and his wife has a son, Tony. He also has five stepchildren: Aleksandra, Nicholai, Brianna, Davan and Taelin.  “Vince was a fantastic father who was completely devoted to our children,” his wife said. “I can’t say enough nice things about Vincent.”

His parents Vincent II and Donna Filpi live in Shalimar.

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Vincent A. Filpi III is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
