Vic was my uncle on my dad's side. Growing up, he was my greatest ally and partner in crime. I remember so so so many amazing things about him that i dont even know where to start. Through all of his treatments, he still smiled and made me smile too. He still laughed and did many things he loved. Uncle Vic always had hope in his eyes when you looked at him. He always reminded me to keep my head up and that he was proud of me. On the year my parents divorced, i was hiding on Christmas eve. Uncle Vic found me under the desk and brought me out. He told me everything was going to be okay and then tickled me until i couldnt breathe. He was the strongest man i knew. He was my hero... and my savior, all the way. He will be very missed in heaven.

Vic was my friend in high debate partner, bandmate, and fellow photography enthusiast. We were such geeks! Every single one of those activities taught us things that have made our lives richer...he´s a little piece of every picture I ever take, every song I play. It was such a pleasure to reconnect with him a few years ago...he grew into a kind and thoughtful man. I am so sorry to hear of his passing, and am praying for his family.

So sorry to hear about Victor. We worked with him with AYSO for many years, our daughter Rebecca did lots of babysitting, and Rita worked at H&R Block. We will miss him. Our prayers are with your family.

Oh no no. With sincere sympathy & prayer, I am so sorry for this terrible news. Victor did my taxes years before I assisted as the CSP in his office. He didn't change his tone, even on the rough days, around treatments & results of them. Seemed so humble as a genius. It's a sad day at the end of an era. His Mrs. was an earthly angel, that I am sure.
