  • Notes 
    • At the age of 14 Vic was tangled while hitching a spirited team of horses. Tetanus had to be administered to safe his life, but one leg was amputated. Severed nerves would continue to cause him pain. However, it did not stop him from riding and driving or hunting and fishing.

      After graduating with a degree in law, Vic joined his father’s bank in Ballinger and then managed his father-in-law’s compress business in Elgin. However, his father’s death brought financial disaster. He did manage to salvage the familiy home for his mother as well as a modest income. Determined to avoid his father’s countywide promotions, Vic dedicated his practice to the unfortunate, the small businessman, and the farmer. He often only accepted a day of yard work as his fee.

      Vic tried his hand at a bottling works, a race for County Judge, and in dealing oil, cotton, grain, and livestock. After tiring of office work, he worked land that his father had sold to Julia, his wife. He converted the farm to ranch and registered the “Running V” brand.

      He taught his children tennis and bridge as well as to swim, ride and shoot. He was loved by the youth of the community and would manage a picnic or camp for Boy Scouts or Camp Fire Girls. He suffered a head injury in an auto accident in Austin. He soldiered on for two months before passing away.
