Victor was born in Lac Vert, Saskatchewan and grew up on the farm. He worked for many neighboring farmers before heading to BC and worked two seasons at a logging camp. In between his tours he met Petra and began a courtship by letters. He married Petra in September 1962 and started a family in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. He worked many trades up until he started his own company in the early seventies called Midway Construction. The early eighties saw a downturn in house construction, and he became a construction supervisor for Remai Developments/Span West from 1984 to 2015. He was a tireless worker and supervised the construction of several apartment buildings and condos throughout Saskatchewan and Alberta. Upon the kids growing and leaving home, Vic and Petra moved to Star City in 2005 where Petra still resides today. He loved his family and his dog Shep.
He will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his wife Petra of 57 years, his son Eric (Jacquie), daughters Cathy (Kevin) Burroughs, Sheila (Craig) Jones & Kerry (Kevin) Ramsdell.
