As a faithful child of God, Vic was always diligent in his attendance at both the Divine Service and the Lord’s Supper as his health allowed.

Vic served in the United States Army 1st Infantry Division from 1964-1966, in the Vietnam Conflict. He then returned home and worked for Jenkins & Associates as a carpenter for 36 years before retiring to spend time with family.

The Lord of the Church called Vic home to be with Him on February 18, 2024, at the age of 81 years, 6
months and 15 days. He was preceded in death by his parents, John Earl and Flossie and by his siblings;

May all who mourn this death be comforted in the sure and certain hope of the Resurrection of the dead unto eternal life for all who believe and have placed their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior – for even in death, He is Lord of all. To Him be the glory, the power, and the dominion, forever and ever. Amen!

Our Sincere Condolences

Vicki, John & Adam –
I’m so sorry to hear about Uncle Vic’s passing. He was a great guy. I always looked up to him and had a ton of respect for him. He was always good to me. I can remember when he and Aunt Gloria got married and he became part of our family. I remember him being featured on the cover of Parade Magazine in his full military gear. I was so impressed by that I’ve carried that image in my mind since childhood. I know you’ll miss him. I’ll always have fond memories of him.
