September 5, 1929 - May 2, 2022

Victor took his last flight on May 2, 2022, this time to heaven. After 92 years, we never expected this day to come, for after every surgery and illness, he usually came back stronger than ever.
Victor was a storyteller and frequently spoke of his early years growing up in Winnipeg Beach, working in the mines, his own service stations (Roco and Vic's Esso), Bristol Aerospace and Air Canada and most importantly, flying, fishing and hunting. A man who always said there is no such word as "can't" could build or modify nearly anything. He spent countless hours building and rebuilding floats and planes and then test flew them himself. He treasured his fly-in camp he built at Family Lake near Little Grand Rapids, spending time with his poochie Molly at Caddy Lake, and food! Victor loved life and had big plans for the summer, after not working all winter in his garage in St. Andrews, for the first time ever.
Married to Anne for 68 years, together they raised Debbie, Brenda and Robert (Paula) and enjoyed grandchildren/great-grandchildren, Victoria, Rebecca, Kyle, Ryan, Isla and Keenan.
A special thank you to our Home Care angels who listened to his stories and all the healthcare workers he encountered over the years.
Donations in Victor's name can be made to the Health Sciences Centre Foundation or the Interlake Eastern Health Foundation.

Wrap yourselves in each other the coming months. - Posted by: Lana Storey (former teacher of Debbie and Brenda) on: May 14, 2022

  • Jessica, Lyle and I were some of those people fortunate enough to have had the pleasure of knowing Vic. He really did live an adventurous life and his eyes truly lit up whenever he had the opportunity to tell any of his thousands of adventures. He loved life and lived life to the fullest. Although he did not want to leave this life, we are sure he is in heaven living it up with all of his friends who have arrived before him. He is also now reunited with his beloved Molly, his furry best friend, who he absolutely loved to the moon and back. - Posted by: Pat (family friend) on: May 14, 2022
