Vinnie Smiraglia, chapter president


Bruce Taylor, chapter treasurer, with Audrey Rindfleish-Hamilton

 Ontario Chapter has recently lost two very active members of our chapter, Vincent Smiraglia  and Bruce Taylor– brothers in riding.

In memoriam by Diana Smiraglia

Vincent Smiraglia and Bruce Taylor were brothers in the Ontario County ABATE… they depended on each other, and also bonded over the losses they both had in their lives. After Vinnie passed in October , 6 weeks later Bruce was at our garage doing the Ontario County ABATE food distribution, for the local pantries, with Lynn Smith,Audrey & Clyde Hamilton, Jackie Atwater, and Rob Hagenbuch and telling me how much Vin had stepped into a real brother roll( Bruce lost his brother Rod in 2016). But that’s what they were all about, sharing whatever they could to as many as they could- with nothing expected in return. The Ontario County chapter has suffered a great loss- that is for sure… tried and true brothers till the end, Rest In Peace, and hope the riding is great in heaven!!!( Vin probably busting on EVERYONE on a Harley- sitting on his Indian!)
