    What a perfect picture of Uncle Vic as I remember him for always smiling. His positive outlook was an influence on my life and will always have that in my thoughts of him. God bless him and his family.

    This is, indeed, a wonderful picture of a great neighbor and friend from the 25 years that Kathy & I were privileged to live in Kindred. I always knew, when I called on Vic for assistance, that I could count on him to help me out. My condolences to Karen and the girls and their families.

    The Gustafson family from Yuma, Arizona wish to pass on our condolences to Karen and family members in the loss of a dedicated employee of Cass County Electric Cooperative. I will always remember the trip that Vic and I made to Cedar Rapids, Iowa to negotiate a pricing contract with The Dome Pipeline officials on a very large electric pumping station. As the new CEO of CCEC and Vic being the current Office Manager, we had a very good working relationship….someone I could always count on for the extra effort and attention to details. Vic and I were also Lions members and enjoyed working together on Community projects. I also remember meeting his son in law from Wahpeton, as I had purchased a goose neck trailer from the family run business just west of Wahpeton while working on a Precision Ag Network project for Titan, Butler and RDO equipment companies.

    Many memories and words of appreciation from his co-workers and friends at Cass County Electric. I’ve always been so thankful for the job offer phone call from Vic, and years of support and mentoring he provided to me and so many others at CCEC. Vic was a true leader and friend, continuing friendship with many of us after his retirement. October 2016 CCEC Retiree Party, he toured the IT system/room. There was such delight in his eyes for all the advances of a program he started. Hugs and prayers to Karen and the family. Linda Otterson

    Sending my condolences to Vic’s family and friends. Cancer is a terrible disease that robs precious lives. His life will not be forgotten and God has promised that very soon “No resident will say: ‘I am sick’… (Isaiah 33:24). May he rest in peace.
