Obituary: Vincent Cogliano

Vincent Cogliano, at 54
Vincent “Vinny” Cogliano, of Hull, died surrounded by his family at the Pat Roche Hospice in Hingham on June 14. He was 54.
Mr. Cogliano was a graduate of Hull High School and Franklin Institute in Boston, where he earned his master plumber’s license. He served the community as owner of Cogliano Plumbing and Heating for 25 years. 
He loved spending time with family, boating, fishing, pranking all year long, playing eight-ball billiards with the members of “Dropt,” and riding alongside his children in the MS bike ride for team Pep’s Peddlers. He also enjoyed his time as a member of the BC High Fathers Group and four-wheeling in his Jeep.
Raised in Hull, Mr. Cogliano was the son of Terri (DiVito) and the late Vincent; and the proud father of V. Michael and his wife, Joan, and Mia Elizabeth, all of Hull; the brother of Donna Cogliano of Scituate, Chris and Joe Kinnally of Hull, and Ann and Paul Doherty, of Burlington. He also leaves his in-laws, Katie O’Sullivan, Jean and Doug MacMillan, Maryellen and Larry Concannon, Teresa and Richard Williams, Danno and Susan O’Sullivan, Kathy and Danny Gardner, and Mark and Eileen O’Sullivan; his special godchildren, John “Danny” Roberts, Marissa Kinnally, and Aidan Gardner; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. 
Services have been held. His family would like to thank Dr. Jeffrey Clark and the wonderful staff at the Tucker Gosnell Center for Gastrointestinal Cancer at Massachusetts General Hospital.
