Victor worked at the Foundry in Idaho Falls for a few years until he began work as a roofer. He worked for various roofing companies until he was forced to retire due to his cancer. Victor loved being with his family, his kids, grandkids and his brothers.
He loved his tools and fixing stuff because he was really good at it. He also loved rafting the river and being on the river. He loved being with family at this time and he loved nothing more than having an ice cold beer with his brothers when they visited for the summer. Victor also had a great love for his many nieces and nephews all of whom he loved very much.
