Vince Penticost AWPF FWPF

We are very sad to report the passing of Vince Penticost who passed away peacefully in his sleep on the morning of July 10th. He will be sadly missed.

Vince was a well-respected club member who was well known across the camera clubs of South Wales as a presenter and judge.

He served as chairman of Western Valley Camera Club for a total of 23 years (1997-99, 2002-2007, 2009-2021 and 2024).

He also served on the WPF Committee and was President between 2015 and 2017 and as Past President until 2019.

He was particularly known for his sense of fun and good humour. The author of this post particularly remembers him coming to Gwynfa to judge a ‘match-a-slide’ competition dressed in his full referee kit, complete with yellow and red cards.

We’ll let you have the funeral arrangements when we know them.
