Also survived by one niece, six nephews, three great nephews, and his friend Jeremy. Vic attended Carolina Military Academy and graduated New Hanover High School. He worked at Godwin Oil, Godwin Lumber, and Godwin Concrete from which he retired. Vic will be remembered for being a very good hearted person and a special friend to his friends. He will be missed greatly by his friends and neighbors the Chadwick's and Judge Gary Trawick, and his loving pet and companion Daisy Mae. Vic enjoyed cooking and sharing his special pot roast with his friend and neighbors who in turn shared back with him. In his retirement years Vic enjoyed buying, restoring and selling cars, as well as racing them. Vic also enjoyed flying his plane and was thrilled to invite his mother to fly his plane alongside with him. Other hobbies included his champion retriever Ginger and her trainer who prepared her for field trials where Vic had great pride in her success. Hunting and fishing was enjoyed with family and friends. Nobody loved a cigarette, a Natural Light, and conversation with a friend more than Vic. In Vic's last few years he struggled with declining health. He will forever be greatly missed and loved. A Memorial Service will be held 4PM on Saturday, January 6, 2017 at Andrews Market Street Chapel with visitation starting at 3PM until the service hour.
