Victor Bailey Cline Obituary
1925 ~ 2013
Beloved husband and father, Victor Bailey Cline, passed away surrounded by his family on January 15, 2013 at his home in Salt Lake City. He is survived by his wife Lois, and nine children: Russ (Melou), Janice (Richard), Robyn, Chris (Cathy), Rick (Kim), Connie (Pete), Paul (Shirley), Julie (Tyler), Rebecca (Stephen), 33 grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.
An expert in the field of Psychology, he was a noted speaker, author, teacher, media expert, and counselor. His most important legacy, however, is his family. Victor led an exemplary life which has left a lasting impact on his community and those who knew him well.
As part of the "Greatest Generation" he fought on the European front until the end of WW II. Victor graduated from UC Berkeley with a Ph.D. in Psychology and in 1951, married the love of his life, Lois, in the LDS Manti Utah Temple.
Victor taught at the University of Utah for 43 years. In addition to his teaching responsibilities, he pioneered research on the effects of media violence and pornography. His articles have appeared in many lay and professional publications, and he has authored several books which include "How to Make Your Child A Winner."
Passionately committed to strengthening marriages and families, Victor worked tirelessly to educate and assist in this effort. In 1978, he established Marriage Enrichment, an organization dedicated to helping couples improve their marriage and family life.
A devoted father and husband, Victor will be affectionately remembered for his entertaining "Jackie-boy" stories, as well as his love for music (especially Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue"), movies, and Iceberg shakes.
Victor was a lifelong member of the LDS church, where he faithfully served in a wide variety of positions. He also served a mission to England with his wife, Lois.
