On December 27, 2016 the Jordan College and Ag One lost a dear friend, Dr. Vincent E. Petrucci, at the age of 91.
Dr. Vincent E. Petrucci, professor emeritus of viticulture at Fresno State, will be
remembered as a wonderful man who inspired and trained generations of young people
for the grape industry. Few people have had an impact on the lives of students and
an industry more than Dr. Petrucci.
To honor their father, the family requests that in lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made payable to the Ag One Foundation for the Vincent E. Petrucci Endowment (est. 1994) in support of scholarships for deserving viticulture and enology students, or to support the Vincent E. Petrucci Library Endowment (est. 1996).
