WAPPINGERS FALLS - Vincent F. Careccia, 64, an area resident since 1990, lost his battle to cancer on April 16, 2020 at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan.
Born in Yonkers on November 14, 1955, he was the son of the late Mario and Marie Careccia. Vincent had been employed as a Command Center Administrator for the NYS Bridge Authority in Highland.
