So fortunate to have known Vic. Enjoyed countless memories listening to him educate me on horses and particularly horse racing and legacy.
He was always caring and thoughtful and even though he was suffering he always insisted on talking about my family and offering his support.
Thoughts and prayers to Eva.

Dear Eva, Grace and family,
I was so sad to hear the news of Victor’s death. He was always so good to my dad and all our family. I cherish all our family holidays together. My children especially loved the times they were able to be around Victor and the beautiful horses. My love to you all,

Deepest sympathies and condolences to the family. As a youth I watched Vic play his drums at the letter Carrier's hall in Tampa when he was in the rockers dating back to the early sixties. Watching him inspired me to become a lifetime drummer which I can do the rest of my life and still do. Thank you Vic I'll never forget what you did for me. Rest in peace amigo.
