He was honored with the Sertoma Man of the Year award for distinguished service to others.
Vic’s passions were stamp collecting, reading, puzzles, camera club, Boy Scouts, model airplane building, cribbage & Genealogy. Vic spent the last 12 years living with his daughter Colleen and husband Judd in Cheyenne where his quality of life was exceptional, especially when you can spend it every day with someone you love.
A private funeral service will be this fall in Albert Lea when a proper burial can be held and family members can all be part of his laying to rest.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to Bonnerup Funeral Service. The family has set up a trust fund with the American Stroke Association. Vic’s wife Joan suffered greatly from strokes and it would only seem appropriate to help find a cure for something that eventually took his loving wife.
