Vince was born and raised in the small town of Avondale, Pennsylvania, located in southern Chester County. He is one of four children of the late William S. and Betty Ann DiFilippo. Vince and his wife, Elizabeth, have one daughter, Rebekah. They also have three dogs, Theo, Rudy and Bella.
Vince’s parents and grandparents were farmers. Vince learned early in life the importance of farming and caring for this non-renewable natural resource. Vince graduated high school in 1975 with high honors, and attended Goldey Beacom College where he obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration.
Vince moved to Central Pennsylvania in 1985 to accept a job at Pennsylvania Blue Shield (now known as Highmark). He has worked in the health insurance industry for over 30 years and recently retired. He moved to Cumberland County in 1988 and has lived in Silver Spring Township since 1998. In his spare time, Vince enjoys spending time with his family. He is an avid golfer and fisherman, and loves the outdoors. He and his wife spend many hours in their garden growing food for themselves and friends. Vince is an avid reader of American History, Cryptozoology, Astronomy and the Bible. He also likes Bluegrass music.
Despite the long hours of farming, Vince’s father was very active in politics in Chester County. His dad was a committee person for the Republican Party and received many awards for his work. Vince was taught the importance of government at a young age. Vince served ten years as a supervisor for Silver Spring Township. Vince also served as chairman of the Cumberland County Agricultural Land Preservation Board for three years and was a member of that Board for eight years. He looks forward to serving the good people of Cumberland County.
