Obituary for Vincent Anthony Videtto

Videtto, Vincent "Jim" Anthony, age 95 of Lakewood. Vincent “Jim” Videtto was born on August 25, 1925 in Long Island City, New York to parents Antonio Videtto and Angelina Garramone Videtto. He was the last surviving sibling to Rocky, Jerry and Mike Videtto. Jim is survived by his wife Marie Leprino Videtto, brother-in-law James Leprino, sister-in-law Donna Leprino, other family members are noted below. Jim served two years in the US Navy during WWII and received honors from the French Government for his service during Operation Overlord (D-Day) at Normandy Beach.

Shortly after returning home from his military service Jim met the love of his life, Marie and they married in 1947. They lived in New York for a year and then moved to Denver. Jim’s first job when he moved to Denver was at the Schwader Brother’s factory, later known as Samsonite. In 1961 Jim and Marie went into the restaurant business with Marie’s sister Ange and her husband Frank Testa. A couple of years later Jim and Marie went solo and operated The Villagrove, an italian restaurant in Applewood where Jim’s passion for serving others, his good nature and quick wit shined through. The restaurant was often referred to as Jimmy’s place and was a neighborhood gathering spot where everyone was made to feel like family. In 1974 Jim and Marie opened their second restaurant in the up and coming area known at Columbine Knolls. The new restaurant was called The Columbine Restaurant and Lounge, they operated The Columbine for eight years before retiring.

Over the course of their 74-yr marriage Jim’s devotion to Marie was never ending. They raised three daughters, Rosemarie, Susan and Diana. During the later years of Jim and Marie’s life together their family expanded to include sons-in-law George Hamblin, Pat Trichie and Kirt Ingram; Grandchildren Ben, Chris, Greg, Scott, Megan, Mark and Andrea; Great Grandchildren Mariah, Trevor, Jordon, Tristan, Brigit, Jaxon, Teagan, Carter, Easton and Grayson.

Family was Jim’s number one priority and if you were lucky enough to be his friend you were included in that circle. He loved to have his family around him and was the consummate host at every gathering in his home. Jim enjoyed golfing, playing cards and was the best swing dancer any partner could hope for. He also enjoyed watching the Broncos and Rockies games, if he couldn’t be at the games in person he liked to watch with his family while snacking on wine and Cheez-its. Jim will be remembered by his family and friends for his unconditional love, unwavering support, patience, courage, contagious smile and his zest for life. He will forever be our inspiration and we will strive to make him proud by following his examples in life and faith.
