Victor Emmanuel DeLuca, 90, of Wilkes-Barre passed away Monday, June 9, 2014, in the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Plains Township.
The Guest Book is expired.
Born Jan. 27, 1924, in Wilkes-Barre, he was a son of the late Archie and Theresa Stanziale DeLuca.
Vic attended GAR Memorial High School, Wilkes-Barre, and left to enlist in the Army Air Force, and served four years during World War II in England, France and Germany. He was part of the D-Day invasion.
Victor met and married his bride, Nora Price, in Shrewsbury, England, during the war. After the war, he returned to school and received his high school diploma.
Victor liked to say, "He was a man of few words." He enjoyed his garden, cooking, fishing, and playing cards, spending many nights at the kitchen table playing games of "Synch" with his family. Vic treated everyone the same ... fairly.
He was preceded in death by his brothers, Ralph and Anthony, and sisters, Angie Wetterau and Carmella Lee.
