He said he attended Cotton Field Elementary where he learned his times tables.
He had the biggest sense of humor always telling jokes making everyone laugh. He always had funny stories to go with any conversation. A quick joke or funny remark to soothe over some tough love.
Undaunted by any task he would boldly charge until the job was done. He could be stubborn at times but never mean. When caring for one of his family or friends his sound advice, kind spirit and uplifting smile would get anyone back on their feet and ready to face the world.
Victor loved his family unconditionally and helped anyone out that needed him. He made friends easily with everyone he met. He was the rock of his family.
