The fight has ended, but only after a lengthy battle as Vic fought hard. It is with sadness that his family announce his passing at GR Baker Memorial Hospital, on May 23, 2015 at the age of 69 years. Vic is now with his beloved dogs, Gabby and Teddy.
Vic was not one for much fuss or attention, so this will be brief.
Vic’s early years were spent in Upper Stewiacke, Nova Scotia.
Vic had a richly varied life, which included being a licenced heavy duty mechanic and working in construction, logging, and mining. But Vic’s biggest accomplishment was his family. He and Judy married on April 21, 1967. Together, they raised 4 children.
Vic always knew the true meaning of “being right” and loved nothing more than a good argument. He was a proud man. What you saw was what you got. He did not beat around the bush, but was a straight shooter.
Vic is pre-decreased by his parents, Florence and Graham, brother Hugh and grandson Randy. He is survived by his wife, Judy, his children, Victoria Studley (Art), Sam (Carla), Scott (Kyla) and Danny (Carri-anne); sister Janice (Ronnie) Cleveland; sister-in-law Miriam, along with many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
The family wishes to extend our thanks to Dr. Smit and all the nursing staff who took such great care of our father during his hospital stay.
Donations in Vic’s memory to the Canadian Diabetes
Association, Kidney Foundation or the Heart and Stroke

The family invite friends to join in honoring Vic’s life on
June 5, 2015, 1:00 PM, at Clayton’s Funeral Home,
