Vincent D. Bartolomucci



SAN DIEGO – Vincent “Vince” Bartolomucci recently passed away peacefully surrounded by his family. The cause of his death was kidney failure due to amyloidosis (AL).



He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Kathy Alix Bartolomucci, their son, Jonathan, his extended family of in-laws, nieces and a nephew. Vince was an only child and was preceded in death by his parents, Daniel and Anna. With very sad hearts and countless tears, we kissed him good-bye for now, but know we will see him again because of his faith in Jesus.



Vince was a long time employee of San Diego Gas and Electric, retiring in 2016, where he had a diverse career and many friends. While vacationing in San Diego almost forty years ago, Vince fell in love with the city. Before returning to his home in New York City, he applied for employment at SDG&E. A short time later, he was hired. While working at SDG&E, Vince’s career took him down a path where he realized he enjoyed working with people more than numbers. He worked in both the traditional energy and renewable energy fields. After leaving Electrical Engineering, he worked as a Contract Negotiator, Regulatory Affairs representative, Supervisor, and Manager. His favorite position was his last where he managed over 20 people to sustain the day-to-day energy supply for SDG&E. He experienced great satisfaction in mentoring his team in their career development and knowing that SDG&E never had a “major energy supply mistake” during his tenure.



Prior to joining SDG&E, Vince worked as an Electrical Engineer at CON ED in New York City. He commuted from his family home to attend and graduate from Manhattan College, and enjoyed playing the game of monopoly with his friends.



He was a self-taught, accomplished chef with the natural ability to make a spectacular dinner from a few ingredients. Since he was a young man, he enjoyed music, photography, movies, theatre, reading, the symphony, wine, tinkering, dinosaurs and football. Mostly, he loved being with his wife and son.



Vince believed in doing the right thing, acting with integrity and helping the underdog. He also had a heart for the homeless, the wisdom to see the big picture, insight to see beyond the obvious and the ability to understand people. He had a great sense of humor and desire to be the best husband, father and mentor he could be. His family’s well-being was prominent in every decision and action. He was most proud to be the father of Jonathan.



The family extends gratitude to the physicians and staff of Scripps Clinic Torrey Pines and Interim Healthcare The Gift of Hospice in San Diego for their excellent care and sincere concern.



A celebration of Vince’s life will be held on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at 1:30 at Torrey Pines Church, 8320 La Jolla Scenic Drive North, La Jolla, CA 92037. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to the homeless organization of: San Diego Rescue Mission, website: www.sdrescue.org or to the hospice organization: A Gift Keeps Giving, 6350 Birchwood Street, San Diego, CA 92120, or to the Scripps Clinic, Scripps Health Foundation: website: www.giving.scripps.org.
