He also worked several years as a master mechanic for heavy construction.
Victor enjoyed the outdoors. He spent many hours watching wildlife on his ranch. He also liked hunting, the sight of a sunrise and a sunset, visiting with neighbors and spending time with his family. He had many small traditions like taking the girls up to pick the springtime wildflowers or eating oyster stew on Christmas Eve. He had a love of learning and liked to teach others. He even took his turn being the principal of the Christian School the boys’ attended. He looked forward to each spring. He loved babies of all kinds and could not pass up holding or petting them, it did not matter if it was a calf, piglet, chick, lamb or child.
He was a member of the Christian Missionary and Alliance Church. He loved the Lord and now he is home with him, along with his mother Victoria, brother Floyd, sister Alberta and other family and friends who have gone on to Heaven before.
