Victor was a kind and caring man who was beloved by all that knew him. He valiantly served our country during some of the world’s darkest days, as a member of The United States Air Force during World War II. After his service, Victor worked for many years as an electrical engineer at Westinghouse, where he spent the entirety of his professional career. He was a proud member of Shawnee United Methodist Church, as well as the Elk’s Lodge. He enjoyed playing bridge and his love of golf was legendary. The staff of Wyngate lovingly remember how often he would offer free golf lessons. Ultimately, Victor was a people person. He was known for his kind and easy going nature, as well as the love that he had for his friends and especially for his family.
