Vic spent his life protecting and caring for others as a professional fire fighter for the Kelowna Fire Department, retiring in 2002 after 29 years of service. He was also a very talented artist and graduated with honors from BCIT working for several years in the sign business.

Vic was a very outgoing, outspoken guy and loved to strike up conversations anywhere. He was a very memorable character and made many friends not easily forgotten by those who knew him. He continued to share his knowledge of life, along with his carismatic wit and humour with friends and family right up to his last days.
