Vince was born August 18, 1955 in Dothan to the late Donald Vincent and Willie
Dean Stanford Arnold. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree and spent his entire
career in retail sales. He began with Gayfer’s in 1986 and worked with them until it
was bought out by Dillard’s. His career with Dillard’s took Vince from Dothan to
Tallahassee, FL, Panama City, FL and back to Dothan. He served as Assistant
Manager for several years, eventually becoming Manager of Dillard’s, where he
remained until his retirement. In 2017, Vince began a second career when he started
working at Family First Funeral Care in Dothan. He loved his job because it
allowed him to talk to people, making them feel comfortable and welcome, which
nobody was better at than Vince. He will be greatly missed by his many friends and
family. Vince was of the Free Will Baptist Faith.
Survivors include two aunt’s, Mrs. Ed Stanford of Pensacola, FL and Mrs. Joyce
Wahlberg of Panama City, FL; numerous cousins to include Shieba and Daniel
