It seems like yesterday that I saw you and we laughed together. I miss you and always will. I hope to see you again someday. Love you Kid.

I will miss you forever. Everything changed after you and Mom passed and I want the world to know what a happy go live guy you were all the way to your last breadth. There will always be a void in our lives because you were the life of the gatherings. I am glad you are no longer suffering and know I will see you again. Meet me at the gate! Love Nancy

Primo, I give God Glory for the wonderful way He created us because He gave us a mind and a heart, so wonderful is this combination. The mind brings me memories of you and my heart is touched by them. Your smile is one of the most precious of all memories because you always had one. You are forever in my spirit. Looking forward to seeing you again. Mom and Dad send their heart felt memories and love for you to keep alive for when they see you again, so hold them captive. Love you, Victor!!

Victor, I can't recall ever seeing him in a pair of sneakers. Always in a pair of nice shoes. Dress and ready for a party. He was always at the family get togethers. Never drama, sad or upset. So cool and easy going. I can't listen to oldies but goodies, DOO WOOP. without thinking of him. Love you cousin and thank you for the memories. God Bless you.

You were always a brother to me. Never did I ever see you in a bad mood or unhappy. I know you went through so much and never complained, always joking. I miss your presence but I know I will see you again because you believed in the promise of eternal life. Thanks for the memories. You will always be loved. God bless you my dear brother.

Tengo pocas memorias de mi tío Víctor pero las pocas que tengo las aprecio mucho cada momento de ellos. Mi mejor recuerdo son cuando tenían una celebración en su casa, siempre ponía música de su tiempo a todo volumen, contando chistes y historias que solo mis padres sabían. Siempre trende esos recuerdos bonitos de mi tío Víctor.

As I look back in times past I can remember how you loved the finer things in life. You were sharp, classy, smart and funny. You had a lot of my dads (Cuty) characteristics in you, I wonder if it rubbed off on you. Dad and mom always spoke greatly of you. You primo have been an inspiration, even through all you went through you still could be funny, keeping faith alive and that alone gave courage to those struggling with similar circumstances. You fought the good fight of faith. You are forever going to be missed primo. You are seated in heavenly places, may you continue to shine down on us.

God will link the broken chain,
As one by one we meet again.
In our hearts he will always stay,
Loved and remembered every day.

So many times that we had together. I will never forget.

Our finding each other on FB was no co·incidence, it was the will of God. I sure wish we would have had more time to be able to visit, talk, laugh, even cry. We had some good memories. How Dad let you drive his car. I will always cherish our times together back then and the sharing we did just before you left us. I know you're not suffering any more but we miss you down here. We miss your funny antics and your serious words. We miss YOU and everything you are to us. We'll always love you, Victor.

Viten, Where do I start? Over 50 years.  I knew you from the 7th grade at 15th Ave. School. We went to HS together and worked together. You were much more than a friend...you were my brother truly...you became Tio to my daughter. I love you and miss talking to you about the good old days and of course Doo Wop...continue to rest in peace my brother.

To Victor my cousin in law, what great memories. As a kid I remember playing the card game "War" for hours and listening to his oldies. Vic knew doo wop better than anyone. As a music lover myself, every time I hear a classic I think of him, now more than ever. Music, Newark and horseradish, belonged to the kid. Will always have a place in my heart for you Vic, thank you for the memories. Love, Jimmie

I light this candle in your honor. Since your at your resting place with our Creator.
May this light shine and illuminate the path for your love ones. To help them continue this journey call life with energy and a zest for love.
I thank you for showing me how a husband should love his wife. With all the joking and kidding aside
As a young girl I remember the subtle looks and smiles you would give your wife - a subtle wink or touch. That said an untold story.
I thank you for only speaking good things about my dad in my presence. And last but not least thank you for allowing me and brother to be a part of your family.
So for the ones who love you and love you hard- live your life the way he would have encouraged you to live it.
Kidd you are always in my heart and my fond memories that I at times share with my husband - lets do wop , dance , and laugh
Like the Kidd . ❤️❤️❤️

Victor, I have so many fond memories of you on 21st Street. You were always the classiest and best dressed man in town. Yet there was another side of that only the closest people to you had the chance to see. The comical side that brought smiles to all of us. Your unique personality and love for live was like no other. We lost a prize gem, YOU. We will always carry you in our hearts. May you continue to rest in peace

I light this Candle for someone I've never met in person but he hold a special place in my heart. Here is a little poem.
Light a candle,
see it glow,
watch it dance,
when you feel low,
think of Victor,
think of light,
he'll always be here,
day or night,
a candle flickers,
out of sight,
but in your heart,
he still burn bright,
think not of sadness,
that he's not near,
think of gladness,
and joyous cheer,
He have not left,
He is not gone,
He is here to stay,
so when you light a candle
and you see it glow
and you watch it dance
in your heart you'll know
that He would never leave you
even when you feel so blue
He is sitting up in Heaven with the Lord
and now watching over all of you.

RIP Victor
Will meet one day Kid

Thought of you when I heard this song this morning

"Why Do Fools Fall In Love?"

Ooh-wah, ooh-wah
Ooh-wah, ooh-wah
Ooh-wah, ooh-wah
Why do fools fall in love

Why do birds sing so gay
And lovers await the break of day
Why do they fall in love
Why does the rain
Fall from up above
Why do fools fall in love
Why do they fall in love

Love is a losing game
Love can be a shame
I know of a fool you see
For that fool is me
Tell my why
Tell me why

Why do birds sing so gay
And lovers await the break of day
Why do they fall in love
Why does the rain
Fall from up above
Why do fools fall in love
Why do they fall in love

Why does my heart skip a crazy beat
For I know
It will reach defeat
Tell me why
Tell my why
Why do fools fall in love

I will always be in awe of his charisma and how genuine a person he was. I only met Victor as a kid, a toddler perhaps, but after years and years apart with no contact, one day our paths crossed and he reached out to me. He was talking to my mom and asked to speak to me. From the moment we heard each others voice, it was like we had known each other and been in each others company always.
I remember how heartbroken I was when news of his passing came...but I will forever be thankful for having had the opportunity to enjoy his company and kindhearted spirit.
May you Rest in Paradise Victor, I love you!

Victor, I can't remember you without remembering your wife, When I was young I thought of you both as the perfect couple, beautiful and in love. You were funny, handsome and an all around good guy. I feel like I lost so much of family when we moved to California. One thing I will always treasure though is knowing that you made my cousin Judy happy. I will never get to say goodbye, but hopefully you will know, what I thought of you and your love for my cousin. God Bless you Victor.
