The airbrush industry has suffered a major loss with the passing of Createx’s founder, Vince Kennedy, last week. I knew Vince for nearly 30 years, and was deeply saddened by the news. Vince was charismatic, dynamic, brilliant, and a terrific soul. My condolences to the Kennedy family, the Createx staff, and all who knew him. Vince Kenndy’s viewing will take place at Vincent’s Funeral Home on Rt.10, Simsbury, Connecticut, from 9:30am to 11:30am, and the noon service will be at St. Catherine Church, 265 Stratton Brook Road, West Simsbury.
