The kind-hearted dad became concerned about the cold temperatures and insisted the man keep his clothes.
His fiancee Courrie Webster told the Manchester Evening News of her pride in his actions.
She said: "We had just been Christmas shopping and we had be speaking on the way to the petrol station about how freezing it was and how we couldn’t wait to get home and get warm.
"At first we thought he was just sat there until we saw the petrol station worker come out and give him some food and a drink.
"When I mentioned what I saw to Johny, we decided to give him some money so he could buy some hot food to keep warm.
"It was only when Johny got speaking to him he told him that a woman had taken his pants home to wash for him and was bringing them back tomorrow so he had a clean pair.
"Then Johny, without hesitation, took his own jeans off and gave him his pants.
ACT OF KINDNESS
"He said he can’t stay outside in that weather with no pants. Luckily Johny, since I’ve known him, has always worn shorts under his pants and I’d never understood why. I'm now seeing why, as one day this was supposed to happen."
A woman passing by saw the heartwarming act and captured the moment in a photo.
She told how moved she was to have seen the act of kindness.
Johny and Courrie went back the next night to give Vinnie food and clothes, but he had moved on.
They said they were told he had been forced to leave as people were throwing fireworks at him, but they plan to keep trying to find him.
