Victor continued to stay very active at St. Joseph’s parish where he was a member of the Knights of Columbus and the Men’s group. Living on Bridge Street, he loved to tend to his front garden and was meticulous in taking care of his tulips and marigolds. He enjoyed spending time with his family, loved to sample baked goods, and watching the Eagles play.
Victor believed in working hard, and went to night school where he eventually received an Accounting Degree from Drexel University in 1970. He retired from the Roy Lomas Carpet Contractor where he loved working with the people there.
