One of the best guy's i've been lucky to know, RIP my friend
Victor was a wonderful man. Our sincere condolences go out to his wife Alice, his sister Diane and her husband Don. We will never forget his acts of kindness to my wife's family that lived next door to "Eddie" and Alice. Rest in Peace Brother Eddie! We love you. Helen and Vic Kaplij, North Port, FL.
Seeing this in writing is surreal; yet, makes it real. I will always remember Eddie, handsomely smiling as in this picture and always a complete pleasure to be around. Rest peacefully, Ed and in comfort knowing many of us will take care of your one true love, Alice.
