We offer our most sincere sympathies on the passing of your beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother.
We were taken by Vic’s enthusiasm, zest for life and love of family at our very first meeting. We enjoyed his friendship and his larger than life personality.
All are in our prayers.
Maureen – I only had a few short years to know both you and Vic, but the memories always bring a smile. You grumbling at something naughty he had done, and him chuckling and winking at me over it. Then watching him catch you and steal a kiss in the hallway. Your obvious love for each other after so many years and through all the tough times uplifted my heart then and always.
My favorite memories of Vic were when something particularly good had happened and he would come in whistling and humming a tune. He reminded me of the old ‘rat pack’ stars with the way he dressed so debonairly and his manners. He could always make me feel special just stopping to talk to me. I miss those days – so glad I got to know you both.
I will have you in my constant prayers and trust in the Lord to keep you strong when you need to be and surround you with family and loved ones when you need to lean on them.
Sincere condolences to you and your family,
Catherine Jenkins (former employee at V.L.Rendina)
My cousin Vic touched the hearts of many. For all who knew him, we remember him to be very personable, warm, humorous and so energetic.
My deepest sympathy to the family.
Love, cousin Camy
We send our best wishes to Maureen, Ron and Sharon. Vic was a wonderful man who always showed kindness, respect and a great sense of humor to everyone he met. I was fortunate enough to have been one of those people. We wish you much love and peace for the holidays.

Maureen, Sharon and Ron:
Stella and I are so saddened to learn of Vic’s death. We had been travelling for the past week and just found out upon our return today.
As you know I met Vic more than 22 years ago when I walked into your office and began life as the company’s CPA. As was his endearing way, Vic immediately made Stella and I two of his "best friends." We have treasured his friendship, and yours Maureen, ever since. I know you have lost a great husband, father and friend. Vic’s light in the world will be missed by all of us who knew him.
Dear Maureen and Family, Bob and I are so sad to hear of Vic’s death.
We were in Florida on Sunday and got a call that my 76 year old Sister-In-Law in Scranton died at 8:30pm. She had inoperable lung cancer. Bob and I drove from florida on Monday and Tuesday, then drove to Scranton Wed. for the viewing and funeral on Thursday, Our thoughts and prayers, during the funeral Mass, were also with you and your family.Can’t imagine the heaviness of your hearts right now. May you all find peace and comfort in your many memories.
God bless all of you.
Love, Anne and Bob Gilligan
Sue and I send our heartfelt sympathies to the Rendina family. My memories of Vic at young Ron’s baseball games are still in my mind. Most of all, however, are the great times Vic, the guys and I had playing poker. I know Vic will be the best poker player in the group. Everyone will win where he is but he will still have the best hand.
Our thoughts are with you.
Irv and Sue Liss
Maureen,Ron and Sharon,

Please accept our deepest sympathies. Victor was a life force that brought everyone to attention when he entered the room. He was a funny, caring, enthusiastic man who was always ready to engage in conversation. He will be truly missed and always remembered by anyone who got to know him even a little bit.
Vinny, Sandy, Dan, Bella, and Nicky Crapanzano (Jr)
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I worked for Vic & Maureen for 6 years when the office was on Stony Battery Road. Vic & Maureen were exceptional people to work for.
My prayers are with you and your family-
Maureen, Sharon, and Ron
I can’t tell you how sad it was to read the news today. I have such fond memories of Vic and your family growing up as neighbors. When I got married to Laurie in the Catholic church and was not a Catholic, Vic made it a point that day to take two communions at the service one for him and one for me. I will never ever forget that!
My deepest sympathies go out to all of you and know I have your family and Vic in our thoughts and prayers.
Dave Neff & Family
Jane and I want to convey our deepest sympathy to you and your family. Vic was a good guy an I enjoyed being around him. I particularly remember and enjoyed the day on Mentzer’s back deck when you, Vic and myself talked about our days in New York city. I will miss playing bocce with him, he was so much fun. I will always remember him in my prayers and may the peace of the Lord be with you now and always.
Jane and Joe Rizzo
So very sorry to hear about the passing of Vic. I feel like he gave me my start in business and I will forever be indebted to him. Your family will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.
