I worked with Victor at the mall for the passed 10 years or more he was always smiling even when he was chasing "TailGaters" out of the garage. He always said Hi Amigo and asked when I was going to go to Bolivia with him to party, I will miss your stories and your friendship. RIP see you in heaven.
