Col. (Ret) Vincent James Faggioli

November 12, 1946 ~ October 2, 2018 (age 71)

Vincent James Faggioli, 71, of 95-200 Anuanu Pl Mililani, HI 96789 passed away peacefully at his home Tuesday October 2, 2018.

Vince was born November 12th 1946 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Vince and Pauline Faggioli. He lived a very active life. He lived life to the fullest extent. His was a life of constant learning, serving others, and excelling in everything he did. It was important to him to always do his best. His accomplishments would fill volumes, and yet he was humble enough as a Colonel to address a Private as “Sir”.

His passion for learning is evidenced by his school accomplishments including a Bachelor of Science from the University of Utah in Political Science with a Certificate in International Relations, a Masters’ Degree in Public Administration, a JD Law Degree, an LL.M. Degree from the US army Judge Advocates School, an LL.M. in Tax and Government Contracts and another LL.M. in International Law (with highest honors). His love of learning extended beyond the classroom and he always sought information in all facets of life.

He served in the United States Army for 30 years, retiring as a full Colonel in the JAG Corps. He then continued in Government Service as an attorney for 14 years retiring a second time, from Civilian Senior Executive Service (SES).

He was a true patriot! He loved his country, his God, and his family, and showed his love by a lifetime of service. He worked hard to ensure that the people who worked for him were rewarded for their efforts in every way possible, helping them get promoted, get awards and the recognition they deserved. Even though Vince was very dedicated to his education and profession as a government attorney, he was still able to find ways to bring laughter and humor into the lives of those around him in any setting including the workplace.

The same qualities he exhibited in his profession were easy to see in other arenas such as personal life, education, and religion. He gave his full self in everything he did. He loved participating in all sports, especially golf, basketball, baseball, and rugby.

Vincent is survived by his wife, Karen Anne (Adams), son, Vincent James II (wife Amanda), brothers, David Lamar and Douglas, and granddaughters Amelia Anne and Evangeline Lee who were the light of his life.
