I’m so sorry to learn of Vic’s passing, I only just found out. I loved him and I know he will be missed by his many friends and family. My sympathies to Donna and his nieces.

My deepest sympathy to Victor's family. I met him many years ago through a mutual friend. Vic was a great guy. I liked him a lot. I was his hair stylist for awhile. He was such a gentleman. I am sure he will be missed. When he would come into the salon all the old ladies would swoon. I will pray that you find peace and comfort in knowing that he was loved by many.

Proud to say we were in the same graduating class of Montour. He was a handsome, kind gentleman to all. Love and prayers to his family and friends.

My deepest sympathy to you and to your family, , Donna. This news makes me so sad. We went all through school together. Having the same birthdays, our mothers would always send birthday treats into school for our classmates to share. Double the treats on Nov. 14. I haven't see Vic for quite a few years but thought of him often. Especially on our birthday. Vic was a great friend for 12 years and a fantastic band member. I don't remember what song we were playing but Mr. Picchi told Vic, "Play it dirty!" The look Vic gave him was priceless. I can still see it. He was always so calm and had that special smile. He certainly was one of the very special in my life. Good memories 💕
