Vic passed away peacefully at the age of 96. Born in Fresno, Vic was #6 of 12 siblings. His family settled in Irvington (now Fremont) in 1932. He attended Irvington Grammar School and Washington High School. He was known as a hard-working, dedicated husband, brother and loyal friend. At 18, he entered into the Army and served in WWII in the 128th Infantry Regiment from 1944-1946, where he saw combat in two South Pacific campaigns.

After the war, he attended San Jose Tech where he began his career in auto body repair and painting. In 1954, Township Body Repairs was established in Fremont and remained in business for 42 years!

On December 11, 1955, he married his greatest love, Christine Martinez (1932-2012) after meeting in San Jose. They settled in Fremont and were married for 57 years. They had three children, Victor Rene, Charles Anthony (deceased) and Diane (Patrick) and later three grandchildren, Julia (Albert), Connor & Griffin.

Vic was a proud, active Charter Member/Past Exalted Ruler of Fremont Elks Lodge #2121, member/commander of Veterans of Foreign Wars, Native Sons of the Golden West, and Alameda County Sheriff Reservist (3x pistol marksman champion). He loved sports and participated in softball, bowling and golf throughout his life.

He loved his large family which include many nieces and nephews and cousins. He will be greatly missed by his many friends and large family. His sense of humor, stories and warm smile will keep him in our hearts and minds forever!
