End of an Icon – Rest In Peace Tom Petty by WJ Vincent II

His voice wasn’t that good, but it was iconic.  His looks weren’t great, but he rose above it.  Talent shines through, when it is combined with a relentless work ethic, passion, and love for what you do.  The world will remember Tom Petty as one of the greatest rock stars of all time.  He became a success the old fashioned way, by producing, writing, and performing music that resonated with people all over the world.  So many road trips were taken by me and my family with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers playing in the background.  We salute the man, the legend, and mostly the music.  Thank you Tom for all the great tunes you have left us with.  Knowing anytime we want we can hear your voice helps, but you will be missed.

About the Author

W.J. Vincent II has spent the last 20 years of his life building businesses from start-up to success in fields as varied as Real Estate, Technology, and Environmental Health. In January 2012, Natalia, his wife of 13 years, tragically passed away, her body having given in to her short but dramatic three-month battle with a brain tumor. Her sudden passing left W.J. a widowed father of a 1-year old baby girl and 4-year old boy of his own, along with a 12-year old boy and 15-year old girl he had been helping his mother-in-law to raise due to her battle with multiple sclerosis. Faced with a challenge greater than any he had known, W.J. was able to find strength and inspiration from the Bible. There were many miracles and messages that saw him through the darkest moments of his life.
