Victor was born on September 27, 1933 in Milwaukee. As a teenager Victor came to live with the Carl and Gladys Bernhard family. He was a veteran of the US Army and served in Korea. Victor was a proud member of the Theresa American Legion Post #270 and was fortunate enough to go on the 2015 Stars and Stripes Honor Flight.

Following his time in West Bend, he moved to Reno, Nevada and became a cowhand, living on the open range and helped round up cattle. Later he worked in a grocery store and was also a handy man. In 1998, he returned to Theresa and reconnected with his family and friends. In his spare time Victor enjoyed being outdoors and especially hunting and fishing.

Victor is survived by his two foster brothers, Robert (Carol) Bernhard of Theresa, Chuck (Marlene) Bernhard of Theresa; two foster sisters, Karen Schwenk of Milwaukee and Sarah Bernhard of West Bend; foster sister in law Karen Bernhard, special friends Ann Fuerbringer, Mallony Fife, Don Schrauth, and Kim Chiconas. He was further survived by other family and friends.
