Dear Sonny, I know you are at peace now. The pain is gone and you will soon be reunited with the family that has gone on before. You and Neil were so very dear to me when I was a little girl. Then you both grew up, married and moved to VA. I wish we had lived closer to each other. God had his hand out for you to go home. You are safe. Someday our families will all be together again. Rita and Family, may God give all, the peace you need at this time. You are in my prayers.

Love Jennie Taylor Demore

Vic was my friend, my teammate, and the best spare shooter I ever met. More importantly, he was one of the sweetest individuals who ever lived! I was very lucky to have the privilege of bowling on his team from 1983 until he had to stop several years ago due to his health. He had tears in his eyes then and there are tears in my eyes now as I write this brief tribute. God bless you Vic and rest in peace!

I was sorry to learn about Victor's passing. I had not see him for a long time, Gary McNally had kept me informed about him. The thoughts and prayers of the Class of 1960 go out to you and your family. Sally Reynolds
