Our beloved, (Mr.) Vincent Michael Tilley was born in San Diego, California to Michael and Evelyn Tilley on March 7, 1990. He passed away at his home on September 6, 2022, at the age of 32 year old. On that day, Vince stepped from this earthly body into the presence of his merciful, loving, Holy Heavenly Father.
Vince was a big-hearted, humorous, loving husband, son, friend, and father, who just wanted to be loved, and he was! If you were to ask Vince, he would say his precious children (Lincoln and Sailor Jade) were the joy of his life. In addition to his children, he is survived by his wife of 13 years, Jessica Tilley.
Vince and Jessica met in high school and were together for 15 years. He is also survived by his parents, Michael and Tamara Tilley (stepmother), his father-in-law Bruce Shaver, mother-in-law Rindi LaTurner, sister and brother-in-law Samantha and Cody Decker, Vince also enjoyed relationships with his multiple cousins, nieces and nephews from his wife’s family.

Vince loved to work with his hands, he could fix or put together anything. He loved his job the last 10 years as a contractor & working at Searles Valley. He had a good time with all his co-workers.
Vince was proceeded in death by his paternal greatgrandmother, Lenora Watson, his mother Evelyn Hanscom, his paternal uncle Ed Watson and aunt Joyce Thompson.
He spent the first 13 years of his life with his mother and brother in Michigan. He came to Ridgecrest to be with his father at age 13. He spent the remainder of his years in Ridgecrest. Vince attended high school at Burroughs and Mesquite, where he enjoyed and excelled at football and Reserve Officers’ Training Corp (ROTC.) As a father, Vince enjoyed coaching baseball for his son Lincoln and other children in the community. What he enjoyed the most, was spending time with his children, Lincoln and Sailor Jade; their love was the greatest treasure of Vince’s life.
He had a big heart and just wanted to be loved; and indeed, Vince was deeply loved, and especially by his Father in Heaven!! It is because of Vince’s knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ that we can hope to be together again in Heaven.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
