Vince Stead

Vince Stead was born in Pontiac Michigan, and had 4 older brothers and 2 older sisters. Vince's mother passed away from cancer at the age of 37, and Vince was 18 months old at the time. Vince spent a little bit of time with other relatives, then was reunited with his father, who was a life long alcoholic, but was a nice father.

Vince's father owned a string of bakeries, but there was never really any money, his father drank and spent it away most of the time. At a very early age, Vince would go with his father every day to work, where is father and helpers would make all the bakery products at one bakery, and deliver them to the other bakeries every morning, and Vince would ride in the delivery van with his father every day until he was old enough to go to school. Vince learned at an early age, that is father required him to pay for his stuff, like new school clothing and other stuff. Through out Vince's whole childhood life, he worked weekends with his father in the middle of the night at his bakery, to earn money to buy clothes for school.

Vince got his first real job as a paperboy at the age of 11, and kept that job instead his was 13, when he got a better job washing dishes at the local Harvey's Country Kettle Restaurant, where he would ride his bike to and from the restaurant several nights a week after school. Vince kept the dish washing job until he was 15 years old, and got a job a big grocery store in the next town over. Vince did not have a drivers license yet, but he really wanted to keep his job, so he would hitch hike after school to his grocery store job, and sometimes he would be picked up by his teacher, and she would give him a ride to work.

All of Vince's brother's and sisters we required to move out of the house before they turned 16 years old. Vince was able to talk his older friend into renting an apartment with him, that worked at the grocery store also. The manager was nice enough at the grocery store to let Vince work nights shining the grocery store isles with a machine, and working each Sunday, where the other employees were only allowed to work every other Sunday, because the grocery store paid over time, and Ron the manager, had a kind heart.

Vince joined the Navy when he was 18 and liked it very much. He spent 4 years on shore duty at an air squadron, and 4 years at sea duty, where he was stationed on a submarine tender, the USS Proteus, and a destroyer, the USS David R. Ray, and a short stint on the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier. While on the destroyer, the ship would escort Kuwaiti oil tankers full of oil destined for America, out to sea so they would not get attacked. They would put an American flag on their ship, and the destroyer Vince was stationed on would escort them out to sea and safety so everyone back in America could get cheap oil at the time

While Vince was in the Navy and living in San Diego, California, he has always owned, raised, trained, and enjoyed dogs in his life.
