Vincent William Baran

Hudson - Vincent William Baran, age 7, of Hudson passed away Saturday, November 7, 2020. He is survived by his beloved parents, Benjamin and Lindsay (nee Hawke) Baran; his three siblings, Adelaide Ruth, Damien Paul, and Cecilia Susan Baran; and his loving grandparents, William and Connie Hawke and Paul and Paula Baran. His infectious joy, unusual empathy, and fierce passion for life inspired all who knew him. Vinny loved playing with Legos, making people laugh with his silly antics, and waging pretend battles with his many toy swords. A curious boy with a strong imagination, he loved writing stories and developed promising acting skills while role playing with his siblings. Vinny showed a strong faith in God and for many years insisted on attending Mass in a dapper suit and tie. The family will receive friends from 2 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 13 in the chapel at Seton Catholic School, 6923 Stow Road, Hudson, Ohio. Masks and social distancing will be required. Due to current circumstances and limited capacity at the church, Mass of Christian Burial held privately at St. Mary Catholic Church in Hudson. The Mass will be streamed beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 14, 2020 on the church's website (www.stmaryhudson.cc/livestream) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/stmaryhudson). Interment will be held privately at Markillie/St. Mary Cemetery in Hudson. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations be made in Vincent's name to Seton Catholic School (www.setoncatholicschool.org) or to the St. Vincent de Paul Conference via check sent to St. Mary Parish, 340 N. Main ST, Hudson, OH 44236. Arrangements by Johnson Romito Funeral Home, Hudson, Ohio. www.johnsonromito.com
