  1. Man what a good guy he was. He will be missed by alot of people.

  2. Vic was an awesome man. He was always standing up for his family, who he loved very much. He enjoyed his grandkids greatly. He would make friends and make them know he cared in his own way. If you were lucky like I was, he would, if he liked you, make you feel like you belonged with him and his family. He would give ya the shirt off his back if he could. For almost 30 yrs this man was a good friend to me and the fact we were 30 yrs. different in age, neither of us cared. His great love was his wife Dorthy "Dot" who he would move earth if he could for her. He wasn't always the mushy type but when she let him know, he knew and wasn't about to argue. Served this county well and worked alot of years after most would have retired and took it easy. But he wouldn't be comfortable just sitting around. It just wasn't his way. He put alot of miles on the trucks and had friends all over the area. Lots of folks knew him just as Vic, and enjoy his stories and sense of humor, because if he didn't leave ya laughing you better check your pause.
    He was definately one of a kind. And he will be deeply missed. Until next time Vic... keep'em laughin' I'll be there before long my friend. ;^Þ

  3. On behalf of my brother and sisters, and Mom, thank you to those that have helped us through Dads passing. It warms the heart to think that our family has all of you in our lives. He will be missed but not forgotten.

    Dave Sharp
