Vincent P. Madl, age 60, of Nanticoke, passed peacefully into eternal life to join his dad, on Thursday, August 19, 2021, at Residential Hospice, Geisinger South, with his sister and niece at his side.
Born in Nanticoke, he was the son of Rose Madl and the late George Madl. Vincent was a graduate of Greater Nanticoke High School. He enjoyed playing baseball throughout his school years. He was employed at Nicholson in Wilkes-Barre, until it’s closing, Evans & Daniels for 12 years, and then Legett & Platt.
Vince was a proud uncle who enjoyed spending quality time with his nieces and nephews. He was the “fun” uncle in their eyes. He enjoyed bike riding, was an avid bowler, and was part of a bowling league with his circle of friends. He also enjoyed watching Big Brother and discussing in great detail with his nieces who they thought would win.
Vince had the biggest heart. He was always there for anyone in their time of need.
Left to cherish the wonderful memories are: his mother, Rose; brothers, George (Patty) and Jim (the late Sherri); sister, Cathy (Joe) Lushefski; nephews, Christopher (Amy), Andrew, Jim Jr. (Ashley), Patrick and Scott Madl; nieces, Melissa Madl, Shannon (Dean) Alger, Carissa (Tony) Chianese, Kelcie, and Keri Lushefski; great nephew, Blake Madl; and great nieces, Mariyah Madl and Kenna Chianese.
He was a loving son, brother, and uncle who will be sadly missed.
In keeping with his wishes, private funeral arrangements are being provided by Kearney Funeral Home Inc., 173 E. Green St., Nanticoke. There will be no calling hours.

Sending my condolences to the family. I didn't know Vinny, but he was THE MAN we ALL knew in the late 80s/early 90s when hanging at the Wyoming Valley Mall was THE place to be. So many of our teenage years are tied to hearing Vinny on one of his walks.Jess Attardo (over 1 year ago)

My sincere condolences to Vinny’s family. I did not know Vinny personally, but felt compelled to give my condolences because he was such a legend to so many people, long before the age of social media. I worked in the mall during the 80’s. Everyone knew Vinny by the sound of his keys as he walked by the stores. We would see him everyday, but never knew his name or anything about him. I was sorry to read of his passing on social media. I’m also sorry that we never took the time to learn more about him. He seemed like an interesting and kind man. RIP Vinny.Jackie Mazzatosta (over 1 year ago)

I met Vinnie while I was working in Bon Ton Sept of 1992. I'd see him strolling the mall and he'd stop by every now n then n bring me a Pepsi, my fave. One of the sweetest people I've ever known. My mom amongst others who met him also loved him! He said he loved Jesus and went to church. So I know I will see him one day. Rest peacefully, my friend. You are whole again. <3Stefanie Mukerjee (over 1 year ago)
