Victor Jon Kirbawy

Victor Jon Kirbawy died Jan. 14, 2019. Vic was born in Akron on Aug. 22nd, 1945. Shortly after graduating from Hower High School in 1963, he enlisted in the United States Navy. Most of his career life was spent working for the University of Akron.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Sam and Florence Kirbawy, and his brother David.

He leaves his sister-in-law, Barb; brother, Alvin (Soosan) of Tacoma, Wash.; sister, Adele Varner (Raymond) of El Paso, Texas; brother, Don (Lorraine) of Norton; six nieces and nephews, and 11 great nieces and nephews; some lifelong friends and many mutual friends of Bill W.

Vic enjoyed going to movies and loved music. He kept a small guitar by his recliner so he could play while watching sports, and one by his computer so he could learn his favorite riffs off YouTube. On summer evenings he could usually be found at one of the City of Akron's park concerts. He was also a dinner regular at the Farmer Boy Restaurant on Canton Rd.

A memorial service for Vic will be held Saturday, Jan. 26 at 2 p.m. at Grace Church Norton Campus, 3970 S Cleveland Massillon Rd., Norton, OH 44203
