In 1985, Victor moved to northern Wisconsin with his family to operate the Frontier Bar in Hiles. His family brought him the greatest joy. He worked many years in the home construction industry operating his own business known as Northland Builders. For decades, he volunteered countless hours as a volunteer fire chief for Hiles Company A. His willingness to volunteer also included being an EMT and first responder. When he wasn’t busy working and volunteering, he could be found watching old western movies especially those with John Wayne.
