Vincent (Vince) Salter Obituary

Vincent John Salter
August 22, 1968 - February 27th, 2024

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Vincent John Salter of Portage La Prarie, MB formerly Winnipeg, MB and member of the Peguis First Nation, at the age of 55.
Vince leaves behind his children Brigette (Travis), Devon, and their loving Mother Barb. Vince has also left behind his grandchildren, Skye, Shaylah, Aveah, Jacob, Sophie, Mother Judy
Mason, and Father Dave Mason, Brothers Nelson (Tina) and Jason (Elizabeth), Sister Cheryl (Bart), Nephews Matthew, Wesley, Dawson and Brett, and Nieces Emilee, Kiera, Shayla, and
Ashley. Along with many nieces, nephews, and relatives He was predeceased by his son Logan Salter and his grandparents Mary and Fred Wilson. Vince was born in Winnipeg, MB and moved with his family to Pine Point, NWT, before coming back to Manitoba and starting his journey to become a Correctional Officer and family man. He made many friends throughout his 30+ year career and 55+ year life. He took pride in becoming a father to his three children. As life went on, he visibly softened with the birth of his grandchildren. Vince revelled in the opportunity to enjoy the youth of his grandchildren and the renewed energy they brought to his life. He embraced his Papa role with the same championing enthusiasm of an advocate, and was always at the ready to stand in solidarity with his grandchildren against unjust requests, such walking a short distance to school, or being forced to go to school in inclement weather. Vince was always known to be a person to speak his truth, and yet also willing to listen to another perspective or negotiate positions. He was a firm and unassumingly compassionate soul who encouraged those he loved to speak their truths, and whether it was family matters or union advocacy, he fearlessly and passionately worked to effect positive change. Vince was always proud to do the work he did and made many friends throughout his career. He was a leader and champion for labour, and always supportive and appreciative for the Union cause and camaraderie. Vince was always thoughtful to reach out to
family and friends, and always at the ready to mentor or share his advice. He didn’t let time or distance interfere with the relationships he’d forged, even when life had thrown grief or hardships in his path. Throughout his lifetime he enjoyed many past times like getting together with buddies after work, cooking, and baking, having family bbq’s and family gatherings, beach trips with his kids and grandkids, or enjoying a Star Wars/Star Trek marathon. He enjoyed teasing his family and friends with affection. We’ve heard so many stories of his inspiration to friends and family, that even if he knew what he’d done, he would never accept credit for them. His advice and unapologetic opinion will echo throughout our lives. Forever the negotiator for a better position, the protector and provider, Vince will be so dearly missed by everyone who had the pleasure to have known him.
