Vic will be missed so very much by many people. He was kind and had a wonderful sense of humor and cared for everyone around him. He shared with all and people had a way of smiling when he was around with that fantastic voice. God bless Lorraine and family. He left a wonderful legacy in his family.

So sorry to the Kathol family for the loss of Vic. He was a well loved and respected man. His faith and family were very important to him. He played cards like no other. It is fun listening to all the stories of his children growing up, from daily experiences to all the chores they had to do everyday... My thoughts and prayers will be with the family throughout these next few days. Lorraine will be greatly taken care by all. Hope to see more of her around. The card shark better practice up, cause we will play again!
