What a great loss for us all. A man that would make me smile every time I would see him. My thoughts & prayers are with the family at this time.

Oh Minnie, I wish I could be there with you today but I can't so I will send this message. I will certainly miss Vic. He thought me the city of New Orleans like no one else could. We drove those buses and parked them in spaces that no one else would even try. He was a good man. When he would call my house my daughter would say "Mom that loud mouth man is on the phone". May he rest in peace and my prayers are with your family. Gail Higginbotham
