Vic was the loving father of Mary Bell (Paul), Diane Scruggs (Darren), Patti Eisenhauer and Susan Denney (Richard). He was predeceased by his wife of forty, “the dawn of his life.” They spent wonderful years traveling the world with the Seattle Commodores, living in condominiums in Hawaii and Mexico, and later traveling by RV in California each winter to enjoy the sun and the golf course. In the latter part of their marriage, Dawn was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, with Vic becoming her primary support and caregiver throughout her illness.
He was “Dad” to twenty grandchildren and twenty-eight great-grandchildren, and Uncle Vic to many nieces and nephews. Some of his happiest times were with these young people. Vic is survived by his sisters Fern Lebel, Rita Ingram (Wes), Toni Edmons (Bob) and predeceased by brothers Thomas Lebel and Stephen Lebel. Vic was a good-natured, fun-loving man. He just loved being around people, especially his family and friends. He was always happy to see you and caring to remember others.
As a life member of the Catholic Church, a funeral mass will be celebrated on Tuesday, September 21 at 1 p.m. at St Mary’s Church in Anacortes, WA, followed by internment at Fernhill Cemetery. There will be a visit to the Evans Funeral Chapel on Monday, September 20 from 2 to 5 p.m. and a screening and recitation of the Rosary will precede the funeral mass.
Souvenirs can be made at Northwest Hospice, Parkinson’s charities or a charity of your choice.
