Vincent Taaffe has died in a car accident
I have just received the tragic news that Vincent Taaffe, the son of Frank Taaffe, died in a car accident at age 30. Whatever one thinks of Frank Taaffe, I can tell you without reservation that Vincent was a very intelligent and sensitive gentleman who had lived through many struggles in his short life.
I feel a tremendous sense of loss right now. My sincere condolences go out to everyone who knew him, but most especially his sisters and parents, who have already lived through quite enough. In the short time I knew him, Vincent expressed to me his love for his mother, stepfather, sisters, and brother Will, who passed away in 2008. Vincent was proud to have served his country as a Marine, and had recently finished an epic journey by hiking the Appalachian Trail. It is my fondest hope that he was able to find peace there.
I would also like to extend my condolences to the family and friends of Justin Head, who was a passenger in Vincent’s jeep and who also died in the crash at the age of 31. Rest in peace, Justin and Vince.
As you know, I usually accept all comments. However, out of respect for Vincent and his family, I will not accept comments that are derogatory from anyone regarding any person in the Taaffe family at this time.
