  1. My deepest condolences to the family. I am so very sorry to hear of his passing. I still remember first meeting him from “tumor boards” in the Oncology department at R.I. Hospital. He later became my Physician for years until I relocated to another state. There are not enough words to express how highly I thought of him and how he helped me. I am so grateful to God and privileged to have known him as my Physician. In my opinion, he was the best Physician I have ever encountered. What a legacy this man has left…my prayers are with all grieving at this time. May the perpetual light of Jesus Christ shine on him eternally.

  2. To the Armenio family, I am deeply sorry for your loss. Dr. Armenio was my doctor for years, I met him early in his career. The compassion and kindness he showed me will never be forgotten. He made you feel like you were his only patient. His passing is such a great loss for the medical community. He always asked about my children as they were growing up and when he spoke about his children his eyes would light up. He would tell me how lucky he was. He touched many lives and will never be forgotten. May he Rest In Peace

  3. To Dr. Armenio wife and children.
    I just got a call about his passing. My thoughts and Prayers are With You And Your Family. I because a patient of his through my Sister Jacqueline A. Lopez. She and My Sister Isabelle M.M. Lopez were the first know cases of this disease in the City of Providence. Unfortunately Isabelle succumb to the disease before Jacqueline. Dr Armenio would hold a Birthday ?? party at his office on Taunton Avenue for Jackie every year before she succumb to the disease. I always said he was The Angel my mother sent from Heaven to watch over her daughters. When I was ever admitted into the Roger Williams Hospital, he always ensured I had the best room within the hospital. HE will truly be missed.
    However, comforting this may be, YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN WERE HIS ROCK.
    GOD BLESS THE 3 OF YOU.
    LOVE,
    DENISE E. LOPEZ

    I was saddened to read of the recent death of Dr. Vincent Armenio. I send warm wishes to you. I have just read through the messages left on this site and it is clear that Vincent had a profound effect on his colleagues, patients, and community. I was always glad to run into Vincent at our children’s school or in the hospital. He was a warm, steady presence. I am thankful to have known him. His death is a real loss for so many.

  5. My DEEPEST sympathy to the Armenio family. Dr Vincent took care of my dad and my aunt. may aunt was given 6 mos. from doctors in Florida. My dad was given 3 mons. Dr. Vincent gave my aunt over 12 yrs more and my dad 3 yrs. I can still see the Dr and my dad talking over the gardens and the tomatoes. My dads gave him seeds that were given to him by my aunt from Philly who had taken them here from Italy. My dad’s therapy was 8 to 10 hours around his plants and his garden. he would plant at least 200 plants. Every time he had his treatments a bag of tomatoes and other vegetables were given to the DR. He was the KINDEST Dr. and the BEST. There will never be another Dr. Armenio. You gave your all and now you will continue your work in God’s house. GOD BLESS YOU AND RIP.

  6. My condolences to the family of Dr Armenio. He was my doctor for over 20 years. He was very kind and toke the time to listen to his patients. He was an amazing doctor and very caring. May he RIP.

  7. Dr Armenia was an amazing man and Doctor. He took such wonderful care of my brother Jeff. They had a special bond. When my brother was on the last week of his life we were sad he wouldn’t get to see his newest granddaughter being born. This special Doctor said he would make it happen so he could see his granddaughter. He had a ultra sound machine come to his room and had his daughter in law sit for the ultra sound while my brother could see his granddaughter. Absolutely the best man that entered my brothers life right to the end.

  27. To the Armenio Family – Dr. Jeremiah, Vincent & Penny —

    Dr. Armenio was such a wonderful man, physician, teacher, boss and leader – his kindness, generosity, compassion and just plain goodness — profoundly influenced and guided all those who knew and worked with him. He just made it all seem so easy – for him there was always time – for another meeting, appointment, chat, phone call or joke. I don’t think he ever appreciated or understood the deep and profound effect he had on all of us who were lucky enough to have known him.

    I’ll miss him every day but know that he has found the rest and peace he so richly deserves.

  28. Jenn, I am sorry for your loss. and extend my sincere condolence. I admired Vin when we worked together at RIH as we had numerous mutual patients. When we met on rounds, he always had a smile, pleasant demeanor and usually a humorous tale to relate. He was insightful and caring with his patients who had great respect and trust in him. You will both be in my prayers during this difficult time

He was a blessing in our lives and will be missed.

  31. Dr. Jeremiah, Vincent, & Penny,

    My deepest condolence to you and your family. In addition to being a great friend and mentor, Dr Armenio was just an outstanding human being. He would mention you all often and I could tell how much his family meant to him. Before I even knew him personally, Dr Armenio gave me a second chance. Literally no one else did. If not for Dr Armenio’s advocacy on my behalf, I would not have the career I have today. Beloved by his friends, colleagues, and patients alike. Truly sorry for his passing.

  32. My very sincerest condolences to the Armenio family as well as to Dr. Armenio’s staff, friends, and other patients. When I was first diagnosed with stage 4 cancer 13+ years ago, he told me we would be life-long friends. I never dreamed that it would be him and not me who would cross over first and will be forever grateful to him for his contribution in saving my life. He was a gem. I will miss him very much.

  33. Deeply sorry for the loss of Dr. Armenio. He was my doctor for 26 years. He was there when I had cancer 22 years ago and keep my hopes up. Kind, caring doctor. Rest in peace forever.

I am truly so sorry for your present loss and loss of all the possibilities that could have been. Please find what you can to sooth your broken hearts and feed the emptiness that has been left.

  41. To the family and many friends of patients of Vincent I extend my sincere one condolences. So many wonderful memories of Vince and his personal warmth and empathy and his professional accomplishments.

  42. To the Armenio Family, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy on the Passing of Dr. Arnenio. He was a great and very professional Doctor, and gentleman. I had the pleasure of working with him at the Cancer Center. Always greeted you and acknowledged you, no matter who you were. He,will be deeply missed by all. He,was a Gem. I wish we had more Doctors like him. He was the meaning of a true Physcian. So generous always there for his patients no matter what. And the animals too!! And of course his family. That is a true Physcian. May you find comfort in the days ahead,and hold your memories close to your heart. Gone from our sight, but always in our heart. We will all be together again some day. God Bless you all.

  43. Jen, Penny and Vincent,

    I have had the pleasure and the privilege to have worked with Dr. Armenio for the past 10 years, at the Cancer Center. He has been a mentor, a friend and a confidante during that time. He always greeted everyone with a smile and always asked how they were doing. He was genuinely interested in how we all were feeling, no matter how many patients he had scheduled to see. He gave his all to his patients, and made the Cancer Center a positive place to work. He was a member of our Cancer Center family and will always be in out hearts. I will miss his “Bad Dad Jokes”, which he shared everyday that he was here, along with his favorite saying “Is that bad”.

    He is one of a kind and he will be missed more than I am able to express in words. He is not just a doctor here, and I considered him to be a good friend and someone I could talk with about anything. He was truly our TOP DOC.

    May he rest in peace!!

  44. My heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Dr. Armenio who was such a wonderful physician, great human being and who had touched many hearts. It is very sad to know that he is gone. His legacy will live forever.

  45. Dear the Armenio family,

    For many of us, as former heme/onc fellows, Dr. Armenio was more than just a mentor or a teacher. He was a friend. He was a very giving person. He gave his time to us. Always stopped and said hi, took his time to talk to the patients, his residents, his fellows, staffs around the hospital. Never seemed rush although he was a very busy man. To me that was his greatest attribute.

    Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May he rest in peace. Amen!

    Requiescat in Pace.

  46. Very sorry for your loss. Vincent was my doctor and became a friend throughout my health issues. Our discussions of family and the joys of fatherhood are memorable. Vincent saved my life and he will always be alive in my thoughts. Rest in peace Doctor. Thank you.

  47. I attended St. Joseph’s School in Oradell, NJ with Vincent from first through eighth grade. He was a kind boy who always had a smile on his face. I extend my deepest sympathy and condolences to the Armenio family. I am so very sorry for your loss.

  48. I was a patient of Dr. Armenio.He went out of his way ( and may have incurred the wrath of the lab folks ) by analyzing a piece of my rib instead of a very painful needle stick in my back. My urologist was going to remove a little bit of my rib anyway, and Vinnie spared me from a second, painful procedure.
    I remember his telling me he had come across some veterinary software that could be tweaked to use for human patients. Vinnie said if I came to his lab on a Saturday morning, I might be seated next to a pony.
    When Vincent and Penny were little, Vinnie told me he wanted them to spend more time outdoors, than inside, playing video games. What a gift he gave them. I am sorry he is gone, and will remember how lucky I am our paths crossed.

  49. My sincere condolences to Dr.Armenio’s family.
    It was a privilege and honor to know Dr.Armenio. He was always so thoughtful and kind. He inspired and motivated all of us, his residents, to give our best.
    Thank you Dr Armenio for being an outstanding mentor.

  50. To the Armenio family,
    Vincent was a kind and compassionate person who was always happy to help his patients and colleagues. A true loss. He was always upbeat and positive, a pleasure to be around and work with.
    Best wishes to family, so sorry for your loss.

  51. My heartfelt sympathy to you, Dr. Jennifer, Penelope and Vincent……such a sad time for you, his family and friends and patients..like myself! So many wonderful well-deserved tributes for him don’t know what else can be said..I don’t know what I will miss the most about him: his smile?his compassion? His kindness? His humbleness? His relatability to everyone? His sense of humor? His wit? His caring? I will miss everything! But the smile and his sense of humor stands out the most… Wishing you all peace and prayers during this difficult time. Always remember the good times and smile! How blessed we all are to have known this amazing human being! He will be watching us all from above and guiding us as he always did……RIP

  68. My mother and I are saddened to hear of the news of Dr. Armenio passing. Dr. Armenio became my doctor in the early 90’s then my mother’s doctor in 2008 when she was diagnosed with cancer. I knew Dr. Armenio would take good care of her and he did. At every visit he would always ask about the family, and he called my mother “sweetheart” every time and that would make her smile. He always made people feel cared for and important. Dr. Armenio was a class act. I am sure he was loved by all of the countless lives he saved. Our deepest condolence to the Armenio family, colleagues and friends. Dr. Armenio may you rest in the loving arms of are Lord Jesus Christ.

    God bless,

    Renee Miller & Paulette St.Jacques

  69. Dear Jennifer, Vincent, Penny,

    Carla and I are so sorry for your loss. Indeed it is a great loss to all of us who had the good fortune to know Vince as friends and colleagues, trainees and patients. He touched so many lives and left an indelible imprint in all our hearts. He was such a gentle soul, so kind and generous, so calm and assuring, so bright and yet so humble. We will never forget the summer we spent living in the apartment above the barn on your farm – temporarily homeless when Jen and Vince took us in. Animals, birds, friends, people sick or in need – he took care of all selflessly, with love and compassion. The Christmas parties (with what my kids were sure had to be the real Satna Claus) and his amazing decorations were legendary and defined the spirit of Christmas for my family. He was truly a wonderful man and an inspiration to all of us as a doctor and a person. May you find comfort in all the happy memories of him.

  70. My deepest sympathy to the Armenio family. My husband, John Lawson, Jr., was a patient of Dr. Armenio’s since 1999 with CLL. He also delivered and sold farm supplies and often came to your “farm” to see if there was anything you needed. We were thankful to have Dr. Armenio not only as an oncologist and a customer, but also as a friend. My husband did pass away three months ago but it was not from the leukemia because Dr. Armenio had that under control!! May God bless you with his strength, peace and comfort during this time. Mrs. Shirley Lawson

  71. So sad to hear of Dr Armenio’s passing. He was such a credit to his profession and had the best bedside manner, caring & kind. My condolences to his family. He was quite a special person. Godspeed Dr Armenio.

  72. Dear Dr. Jeremiah, Vincent and Penny
    I’m deeply sorry for your loss…
    God’s speed Dr. Armenio…

  73. Dear Family,

    My deepest condolences for your lost. I just heard, so I am gathering my thoughts. My last visit was right before he took leave and we spoke about this time. I told him, what my mom uses to say to her ten children even as adults on the phone and at the end of a visit. “Pray for me was I will for thee, that we may merrily meet one day in Heaven.” He look seriously at me and said, “I don’t think I am going to Heaven”. I said, listen Our Lady promise who ever you bind in your Rosary will see Heaven”. I bound him and his family…I am sure he is home with the Saint he loved.
    He truly was a hero to my parents, my sister, and so many countless others.

    God hold you close and pray for us the work of a good soul will live through your example.

    Esther (Doreen)

  74. Sincere condolences and prayers to the Armenio family on the loss of a compassionate and very capable doctor. Dr. Armenio was my Dad’s oncologist eight years ago. We trusted and had the utmost respect for him as a doctor and a human being. He gave us hope and peace throughout the medical journey of cancer. I’m sure that he has arrived at his Heavenly reward!

  75. Dear Dr. Jennifer an children, I prayed so hard for a miracle for him as he gave so many to others but alas God must have needed him. He was a man of wonderful spirit and conviction. I credit him with saving my moms life , extending it for many years. She passed at 95 he promised 100 but close enough. Dr. Jennifer I also had the honor of my Agency caring for your dad . Dr. Armenio asked me personally to make sure he was well taken care of. I hope we lived up to your expectations and I remember how difficult a time it was for all of you. I feel honored to have known him in his role as my moms doctor and also as a man trying to take care of his family. I wish you and your children love and the ability to find some peace in his passing. May God Bless you , Cynthia Quattrucci

  76. Condolences to the family of Dr. Vincent A. Armenio. My prayers and thoughts are with you all. Very sad to hear Dr. Armenio passed away. My brother, Howard Jackson, Jr was a patient of Dr Armenio also my mom, Armentine Jackson. I would take my mom to her office visits with Dr. Armenio. My mom adored Dr. Armenio. He showed so much compassion and patience with her. Unfortunately she passed away some years ago of multiple myeloma.
    May he Rest In Peace.

  77. I am profoundly saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Vincent Armenio and extend my sincere condolences to his family.

    As a pathologist at RWMC, my interactions over the years with Dr. Armenio the oncologist were always cordial and, I would like to believe, mutually gratifying professionally. It wasn’t until our roles changed somewhat during the last several years – his as Chair of the Department of Medicine and Director of the Medical Residency Program, and mine as Designated Institutional Official and Chair of the Graduate Medical Education Committee – that I got to know Vince better as a person of admirable ideals, strong spirit, determination and resourcefulness. I feel privileged to have worked with him closely to enrich, as well as salvage, some of our key residency programs. Although our combined efforts in this arena, often against great odds, were not always as successful as we hoped, this was no fault of his. Vince had a unique vision and ability to connect with our residents and address their individual and collective problems and to overcome competitiveness and resistance by reaching out to those who might otherwise be our adversaries to establish pathways of cooperation and mutual benefit. Positive changes that he brought to the GME programs, including the Residents’ Research Day and a lecture series for residents’ professional development, I hope are perpetuated in his name.

    Tragically, Vince has left us far too soon, but our memory of him and, hopefully, his influence on us will long endure.

  78. Dear Dr. Jeremiah, Vincent and Penny,

    My deepest and sincerest condolences. I first met Dr. Armenio during my Roger Williams residency interview a couple of years ago and even virtually his passion for connecting with future as well as current residents was evident and he had a way of making everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Once I started my residency, he went out of his way to guide us in morning report to be empathic as well as knowledgeable physicians. I felt especially privileged to have had the honor of attending the resident retreat at his beautiful home in Rehoboth last year. His love was so encompassing and included his dear animals. It was truly an exceptional experience.

    I miss Dr. Armenio dearly, as we all do at the Rog and the greater community, and am keeping all of you in my prayers.

  79. Dear Dr. Jeremiah and Family,

    Both Ephraim and I send our deepest condolences to you and the Armenio family. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. May God rest his soul and keep you in his loving care.

    Louise and Ephraim Doumato

  93. Dr. Armenio was a blessing to our family and a common household name. Both my parents had him as their main trusted doctor. His words and knowledge were golden. Highly respected for his honesty, determination to help and resolve health issues as they rose and an overall good man in the light of their eyes. He was an adopted member of the family through his caring for my parents. The world is a better place for him being in it. What he did in his short time on earth will live forever in the lives he touched and thankfulness to family members who got more time with the loved ones he saved.
    God bless the Armenio family. Hold them close and comfort them . You are all in our prayers.

  100. My deepest condolences to Dr Armenio’s family. Dr Armenio was one of the most compassionate and the most humble physicians I have ever met. He never ceased to care for each and every resident and was a great leader. It’s extremely sad to see him go. We will always remember his peaceful smile and kind heart. May his beautiful soul rest in peace.

  101. My sincere condolences to the family of Dr. Armenio. He was my father’s oncologist for many years before he passed. I thank God for Dr. Armenio every day as I believe his knowledge and the treatment he chose for my father is what kept him alive all those years. I’m so sad that he was taken so young and won’t be able to help others in need. Dr. Armenio was a very nice man so personable I used to love hearing him and my father banter during the appointments about fishing and farming. He will be greatly missed by many.

  102. Dear Dr.Jennifer, Vincent and Penny. I do not have words to express the sorrow I feel, nor can I express the depth of my gratitude to your late husband. and father, for everything he did for me, as well as my late sister, Sheri Persico. The one thing I will miss the most was his gentle nature and his laughter as we would remember the many mischievous antics of Sheri. It was because of him that my sister, who was given 4-6 weeks to live in July of 1997 by another doctor, lived until December of 2002. I was fortunate to have him treat me for ITP from 2003 until this past year.
    Heaven has another angel, and we lost a saint of a man.

  103. Dr. Jeremiah, Vincent & Penelope

    I am deeply sorry. Please know you are all in our hearts and prayers. He was always there as a doctor and a friend. He holds a place in my heart and will always be remembered, never forgotten. May God Bless you and your family. Rest in peace my friend??

  104. I was so sorry to hear of Dr. Armenio’s passing. He was a great stabilizing force in the residency program and pushed us all to be better doctors. I hope his healing energy lingers with his family through this difficult period.

  105. Dr. Armenio is one of the kindest souls I have ever met. He truly cared for each of his residents as people and made sure we were doing okay both inside and outside of the hospital. He will truly be missed. My prayers for him and his family. May God grant you all ease during this difficult time.

    Dr. Armenio became my oncologist in 2017 and I was diagnosed with Lung Cancer. I have never in my life experienced the care I received from him. It was like I had known him for years. With his expertise he mapped out my treatment plan which put me into remission, still to this day. I will be forever grateful. May he Rest in Peace.

    intently with the most heartfelt bedside manner. Medicine and humanity has lost the greatest of all time. Rest in peace. My forever prayers, Lauren Dauray

  112. To Dr Armenio’s family,

    Please accept my condolence. Dr Armenio was my program director during my internal medicine residency. He was known for his kindness, wisdom and compassionate towards his patients. Anyone that worked at Roger Williams knows how much his patients trusted him. His compassionate and care extended to the residents as well. He supported us during the COVID pandemic and went above and beyond to protect us during the supply shortage of PPE. He will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace.

    Love,
