We’ve lost a true horseman. So deeply involved in the industry in many capacities, as seen in his obituary... amazing man and A dear friend of mine, and so many. Vic, without you, I’d have quit the horse business when I just got started. Too many wrongs in it But you hired me, to break colts, fit futurity babies, taught me so much more... and made it fun, with Libby Clark. We won and won... and I revived from the bad guys that tried to discourage me. Your knowledge and guidance, helped me continue my passion and career!!! You saw potential in me, and fed it. I was finally able to grab onto my passion again. Thank you. Thank you. And you had more talent with your pinky finger on a rein, than I could ever get! God blessed me, when our paths crossed, in 1982!! Love to you Libby. I’m amazed at your strength. He sure loves you. ??

It was such a shock to here about Vic passing. I will never forget him, and all he did for me back in the early 80’s, when I was starting my horse training career. When things went haywire for my job, he and Libby hired me to help with all their futurity babies. I was ready to seek a different life and quit the horse business! But with his nudges, I found out that it’s fun, with the RIGHT PEOPLE! He never stopped encouraging me. Teaching me. Giving advice. And loads of laughs and hugs. Libby, you were his rock. We have made so many great memories together. I’m going to miss him every tax season, too. That’s when we’d get to chat mostly. My prayers go up for Peace and comfort, Libby, and all of you. ?

We were stunned when we received word of Vic's passing. He was such a well loved man and never will we forget his many kindnesses to us throughout the years and that huge warm smile that lit up his face. He was a lover of horses and contributed so much through the many ways he was involved with the horse industry. He will be forever missed by all who knew him.

My life became entangled with Vic through a stallion by the name of Jonmar Jack. That was back in 1980. Vic became my accountant, mentor n friend. I'll always remember his big smile at every chance for a big ole hug. I tagged along with he and Libby at a freezing cold Spring Keeneland Sale. Vic was tireless. I watched and listened as the Horse Master worked his way through the sale catalog choices and then thinning them out one by one. See you on the other side ,counting horses. Carol Roth

Sweet Vic was always like a brother to Sweetie. We always loved his precious smile & hugs; and the way he would say “what are you doing?” when he would call ... that always made us smile. Thank you, Libby, for making his life so beautifully happy! XO
