Victor was a partner and colleague in 2 practices, Beaver Anesthesia Associates and Keystone Anesthesia. He was an excellent Anesthesiologist and an even better person. He was always respectful, kind and courteous. He did so much for so many patients in his years of service. I enjoyed every encounter with Victor and will always remember him. It breaks my heart that we lost him so young and needlessly. May he know now how much we loved and valued him. My deepest sympathies to his family. He will be missed. I pray that he is at peace until we meet again. God bless

I was so very sad to hear of Victors passing. I have only been at St clair a year, but I worked closely with Victor in the heart room (even though he wanted to do most things on his own) he was always so polite and appreciative to me, especially when I didn’t forget his special suture. He was a very skilled anesthesiologist and was so intelligent on many levels ! I will miss his kind soul and his laughs..I was just beginning to get him to laugh with me ! May you find comfort in all the wonderful memories he had with you and all of us! Sending hugs and prayers !
