May 24, 1931 - October 19, 2021

Victor passed away peacefully on October 19, 2021, in Kelowna, BC, at the age of 90.
Friends, family, and co-workers will remember his sense of humour and personal warmth; it was not unusual to hear him described as "the nicest man I've ever met". He retired in 1993 after 41 years of service with The Great-West Life Assurance Co.
He will live in the hearts of Patricia (née Warner), his beloved wife of 64 years; their children, Jim (Elizabeth Yip), Bruce (Irene), Andrea, and Robert (Carlos Chan); grandchildren, Ian, Megan, Jasmine, Sam, Daniella, and Amy; his sister Helen Wardley of Burlington, ON; sisters-in-law, Lynne Murphy of Toronto, ON, Peg Lidster (Jim) of Kelowna, BC, and Eva Carpick of The Pas, MB; and many extended family members. He was predeceased by his parents, Conrad and Ann (née Sawchuk); as well as his brothers and sisters, Irene Van Buren, Phillip, William, Jack, Todd, and Lawrence.
Interment and a celebration of Victor's life will take place in 2022; details to be announced later.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests any tribute gifts be made to the Alzheimer Society of Canada, or plant a tree in his memory with A Living Tribute,
