He was 65 years old. A Memorial Funeral Service will be held in the funeral home, following the visitation, at 2:15 p.m. Interment will be private.

Vinnie was graduate of Revere High School, Class of ’74, his work as a painter and his taste for adventure took him around the world, making friends and memories everywhere he went. He will long be remembered for his sense of humor, his gift of storytelling, genuine kindness and ability to make anyone laugh in any situation. He was the highlight of the family, a walking party who innately pulled anyone around him into his orbit of laughter and fun. But also, he had a soft spot in his heart for anyone less fortunate than himself, and could often be seen volunteering at food distribution sites for the homeless.

He is the cherished son of Laura Taglieri of Saugus and Sam Blengs of Revere and Pompano Beach, Florida. Beloved brother of Diane Blengs and her fiancé Robert A. Flammia of Tewksbury and Jason Blengs of Middleton. Adored uncle to William Walker of Saugus, Rachel Walker of Charlestown and David Walker of Medford.

He will be missed by many cousins and their children, who will always remember him as the “fun cousin” as well as many, many friends. He is predeceased by his stepfather Leo Taglieri of Saugus, his grandparents, Rae Smith, Ruth Howes, Josephine and Louis Blengs, all of Revere, his aunt and uncle, Florence and Al LaPorta of Revere and Vinnie and Terri Blengs of Dania Beach, Florida.

He will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved him and will no doubt think of him anytime they hear a Frank Sinatra song. Truly, one of a kind, and a man of unforgettable quirks, he will, above all else, be remembered for living life HIS way.
