Vincent M. McEveety
1929 - 2018 
Obituar


August 10, 1929 - May 19, 2018

Vincent M. McEveety of Los Angeles, California has passed away at the age of 88 after a fulfilling life. Born at St. Vincent Hospital and raised in Hollywood, California, Vincent was the youngest of three brothers. He graduated from Loyola Marymount University, then entered the seminary for two years.

Choosing another path, Vincent opted for the lay life. His wife Mary Ann and he knew each other from childhood and upon his return from consideration of priesthood, they crossed paths again and it was kismet.

Sixty plus years of marriage, Mary Ann and Vincent were devoted to each other, producing four children, Vince Jr., Michael, Mary Pat and Lizzie who blessed them with eight grandchildren, Shaine Leaver, Ronnie and Emily Petersen, Kiley and Ella Horner and Tanner, McKenna and Tyson McEveety.

With a tireless work ethic, Vincent followed his father and brothers into the film business where he spent the better part of nearly 40 years directing for television and motion pictures.

The patriarch of the family, Vincent enjoyed time with his extended family, talking sports, politics, religion and the human condition. His warm smile giving spirit greeted everyone he encountered, and he will be missed and remembered.

The funeral will be held at Saint Cyril's of Jerusalem in Encino, California on May 26 at 10 a.m..

No real argument there, but it's still amazing that the same guy
helmed both "Balance of Terror" and "The Omega Glory".

The Omega Glory is the only episode written completely and entirely by
Gene Roddenberry. He did the story and the screenplay, and no one
rewrote any of it for him.

That explains a lot.
