Vic was born the second of seven children and raised on a farm in the Archerwill area. In 1956 he came south to work on the pipelines and oilrigs.
He married Vera Schultz in 1959 and began with Weyburn Sheet Metal and also farmed a ½ section of grain land in 1961 in the McTaggart area. Four children followed in 1960-1966. In 1965 the family moved to 5th St. in Weyburn. The McTaggart farm was sold in 1971. In 1972, he returned to farming 4 miles west of Weyburn and continued until he sold in April 1987. This farm is where the family holds the fondest of memories.
For the next few years, Dad worked for several farmers and enjoyed his hunting, fishing and trapping seasons. He loved his sports too- men's fastball, curling and of course the Sask.Roughriders! He was a founding member of the Weyburn Cloverleafs in 1966.
In October 1992, he purchased a ½ section in the Pangman area where he took on the challenge of a cow-calf operation which he fully enjoyed and did well at. They sold and moved back to Weyburn in 2002 and finally retired.
After mom's passing in 2002, Vic enjoyed more of his hunting and fishing and visiting with his children and grandchildren. In June 2012, Vic moved to Hill Top Manor where he was well cared for until his passing. Many thanks to all who visited and cared for him during his last years.
Cheers Dad ! A nice cold Molson Canadian is waiting for you!
