Vic was a great person and a close friend of long ago.  My first wife Donna and I were part of the group of friends with Vic and Marjean who enjoyed many outings together.  My condolences to Marjean and all Vic's family.

Victor carries fond memories within my heart. He was a devoted Christian man who loved his family dearly. I will remember him as a loving husband, father, and grandfather, and also a great grandfather. He was such a kind man with a warm smile. Prayers go out to the entire Bachmeier family. His son, Pat, will greet him with open arms at heaven's gate.
