My thoughts are with you all - Kay, Alison, Alix and Gary - I have only the fondest memories of Vince - that cherubic face, hearty handshake or hug, the smile that lit up a room. And the ever-present sense of humor during the years we were in touch, when my visits to Hebron were many...oh, so many years ago. Bless you all, may you be strong and keep his memory alive with continued happiness and humor. Lovingly, Leslie Matas Saer

Kay, I am so sorry for you, Allison, Gary and Alix. I did not know until now of Vince's passing or I would have been there. I share your grief in a very real way and only wish I had some magic to make everything OK. I don't. We can only go on until we have fulfilled our purpose, whatever it may be. I will make a contribution in Vince's name and wish you the sympathy of a little brother who knows how you feel
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Ah, Vince?what a name! Vince Haag ??. a genuine union name. And a real union man he was too. I worked with Vince at the Schaeffer Generating Station in Wheatfield, Indiana for a number of years. We didn?t work on the same shift unless one or the other of us was working overtime, but I remember Vince as a guy who believed in enforcing our contract with nipsco in no uncertain terms. He had more experience in the union business than I, so I learned a great deal from him. Vince served his local union in various positions over the years. He was big on keeping the membership involved in social activities as well, arranging for buses to ball games and the like. Vince was our local union Legislative Committee Chairman at one point and kept the membership abreast of legislation affecting us all. I remember him well for that, as he was very passionate in giving his monthly report at the union meetings. When he retired, Vince involved himself with he Steelworkers Organization of Active Retirees S.O.A.R and signed up several retirees. That chapter of S.O.A.R now has nearly 700 members. I would call Vince once in awhile to ask him a question concerning legislation to get his views. Although Vince has now gone to that happier hunting ground, his memory will be with me forever as he changed my life for the better. Adios, Vince. Rest in Peace, just as you would after working the midnight shift. We will all miss you and look forward to an organized heaven. Steelworkers no doubt.
