Vic was born in New York City, the son of a Canadian-American family, and graduated from Exeter before entering Princeton. Majoring in sociology, he joined Tiger Inn, was on the WPRB staff, and was a mainstay on the defense for our hockey team. 

After graduation he served as an Air Force intelligence officer in Germany for four years, then earned a law degree from Columbia. After a short apprenticeship in New York City, Vic settled on Long Island to join the Glen Cove firm of Payne, Wood & Littlejohn, with which he practiced law until retirement in 2002. 

In 1955 Vic married Elizabeth “Tina” Watt, with whom he had three daughters and a son. Following her death in 1981, he married Cordelia Reid, and they eventually moved to Brownsville, Vt. (with winters in Vero Beach), where he polished his considerable language skills and knowledge of history and classics, reveled in his love of the outdoors and outdoor sports, and cared for his beloved dogs. 

Vic died Jan. 1, 2021, in Brownsville. He is survived by his wife, Cordelia; four children; and three stepchildren.
