Vincent J. “Vinnie” Blengs

Family and friends are invited to attend a Memorial Visitation in the Vertuccio & Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway, REVERE on Saturday, March 6th from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., for Vincent J. “Vinnie” Blengs, a lifelong resident of Revere, who passed away peacefully after a long battle with cancer at the Kaplan Family Hospice House in Danvers, February 25th. 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.

Face masks must be worn at all times & social distancing must be maintained in the funeral home. All attendees are required to provide their name and phone number for contact tracing and temperatures will be checked prior to entering the funeral home. Only 25 people are allowed in the Funeral Home at one time. Guests are asked to visit briefly and to exit the funeral home to allow others to enter. A strict limit of 25 people in the funeral home will apply for the Funeral Service.

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 also leaves behind his aunt and uncle, Judy and Bobby Anderson of Revere. 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.
