Vic was born March 18, 1939, in Hayward Wisconsin, the son of Mike and Luanna Belanger. He attended Ashland High School, graduating in 1957. Vic served in the Navy for four years. In addition to other assignments, he served as the Navy Representative in the White House Color Guard for the Eisenhower Administration.
After Vic’s service in the Navy, he attended Duluth Business University. In 1963, he was united in marriage to Carol E. Harvey in Ashland, WI. They lived in Duluth, MN until moving to Iowa in 1968. Vic worked for PPG Industries for 35 years, 30 of those in Davenport and then five in Chicago. Vic and Carol moved back to Iowa in 1993.
Vic was a member of Redeemer Lutheran Church and St. James Lutheran Church in Bettendorf. An avid runner, Vic pounded the pavement of the Bix course dozens of times every July. He was an Iowa football season ticket holder for 32 years, a life-long Green Bay Packer fan, and volunteered his time coaching his two sons in youth sports.
In recent years, he enjoyed watching his Granddaughter and Grandson continue their athletic careers at the college level and served his community by delivering for Meals on Wheels.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister Delores. Those left to survive his memory include his wife Carol, sons Mark Belanger (Grafton, WI), Scott Belanger, (Greenville, SC); five grandchildren: Kasia Belanger, Hannah Belanger, Alexa, Grant and Aubrey Belanger.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to the staff at Clarissa C. Cook Hospice for their outstanding care during Vic’s final days.
His memory will live on in our hearts forever.

Carol, Mark and Scott,
We would like to express our sympathy for the loss of Vic. He was not just a great neighbor, but a good friend. Sometimes at times like this, it helps to reflect on the good times. Myrna and I will be forever grateful for the times spent with the Belanger family. The times in our backyards together, dining out, weekend trips and vacations. After you moved, we got separated, but not forgotten . If you are going to have a celebration of life later, please contact us, so we can attend. Our phone # is 563-359-9679. God Bless.
Bob and Myrna
