    I remember Victor from Wallace-Rose Hill, class of 1964. Although he was quiet, he had an unassuming nature and was very sincere. I can still remember his cute laugh! I was glad to see and talk with him at our reunion. To Callie, Steven and Richard - I hope that time will heal your sadness and bring back the many happy times you shared with Victor over the years. May this true patriot of our wonderful country and God rest in his hands.

    Richard Wells says:
    Victor you will really be missed, especially on first Sundays when we phoned with each other. I remember the times as kids we played together, worked together plowing behind the mules, sometimes arguing, playing together at Grandmother's on Sunday afternoons with our cousins, and riding the school bus together for many years. I always thought you would outlive me as skinny as you were with a full head of hair,with color, and healthy. But you are in heaven with Jesus now where we all are looking forward to going when our time comes, which only the Lord knows. Your brother...Richard

    Callie and Steve we were so sorry to learn of Victor's passing. We just learn this tonight when I saw it on Facebook. I didn't realize that he was that sick. He has been on our prayer list at Ogden Baptist Church and then Carlton saw Steven on the Sunday after Victor fell at the hospital and he said he was in the ICU but thought he would soon be going to a room. I am just so sorry that I didn't call and check on him again. We are keeping you both in our prayers and hesrts and sending you love and hugs. Please call me if there is anything al all that I can do for you or if just someone to talk to later. Pray that God will give you Steven the strength and help you need to get through the weeks and months ahead. Love you.
