It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Vince Amendola on March 3, 2021. From President Dom Summa: "He was 97 and lived in St. Helena. Vince was one of these larger than life figures who had a major impact on the growth of CTA, especially in the SF Bay Area. He was my first manager but a lot more. He mentored the field staff and made sure we were delivering exceptional service to our members. Our staff meetings were always lively and our end-of-year parties enjoyable. He inspired many who followed. I have included a link to his obituary. Our condolences to Claire and the rest of his family. His obituary can be seen at:
