2 Condolences for “GETZ”

  1. Denis Hoffman says:

    I have wonderful memories of Victor from our teenage years hanging out with our our close group of friends. Playing pickup hockey and ball and lots of card games. As everyone knows he was a tremendous athlete especially a talented catcher and hitter in fastball. He was a good friend and did very well in all aspects of life. He will be missed. My condolences to Karen, Victor’s mother and daughters, Marianne, Sharlene, and all other family and friends. Denis Hoffman
