My deepest sympathy for your loss. I just found out he is my 2nd cousin I never knew I had. I was looking up my Great-Uncle Vic. And this came up. Looks like I missed getting to know a wonderful man.

I'm not sure if I'll ever learn how to live life without you dad. I feel like there's an empty void in my heart. Thank you for the unconditional love you gave, the lessons you taught, and always being there to pick us up when we were down. There's so many things that remind me of you on a daily basis- some make me giggle and some knock the wind right out of me. I love you pop and miss you more and more every day. Love, Your little girl❤

Vic, I will never forget the kindness that you showed me as a young man. Being friends with your son has truly been one of the greatest joys in my life. You always brought a smile to my face and laughter to every room. I will never forget your infectious laugh or how passionately you would play your guitar and share your love of music with all of us. I think what I will remember about you most is how much you loved your family and how much they loved you in return. Your legacy will live on in each and every one of them. We know your light is shining bright, as it always has. We love you and miss you! God bless you and your family. You are all in our prayers.
