    Our brother is so missed! What a fantastic picture. His sometimes “weird” sense of humor will be missed by all who knew him. Carlos and I will sorely miss the wonderful years we shared; the family dinners and cookouts, working together, laughing together. Heaven is a richer place today. Sue- we love you,and MIke.
    Your sister and brother, Uncle and friend, Nancie and Carlos

    Nancie. Bev and I extend heartfelt sympathy to you and your family on the loss of your dear brother. Even though it was time to go because of his grave condition, it is never easy to lose one so dear.

    Uncle Vic was a one of a kind! I have so many memories of pure silliness from when I was a young child. As I grew into a young adult and had a family of my own he still had that silly side, especially with my children, but I learned about a different, more serious and caring side when he held my babies or we talked about careers, family, and life goals. I am so thankful for the many memories. Hugs to all during this sad time. Xoxoxo

    ‘Gold’, as we affectionately called him on our national political chat room site, was clearly a man of faith and when he chatted with us almost every night he would say; “Well folks it is time to watch TV with my lovely bride.” That is the memory I shall always cherish because with his discomfort he would always express hope for a better tomorrow. We miss you Vic but you affected us all with your love…forever…

    I loved his sense of humor, I will continue to pray for the family he loved so much.

    Sue and Mike I am so sorry for you loss. Working with Vic so many years, we had a lot of laughs. Our prayers are with you and you family. Jim and Georgette Quintal

    We have missed Vic’s presence at church during his illness. He always managed a smile and took his regular seat. We shared the row at church and will someday meet again to share our joy in the presence of our Savior. He fought hard and suffered long with the cancer that took him, but when his time was done, he was ready. We pray that loving memories will temper the grief of his absence for Susan and his family, and that the truth of his faith and his testimony will ring true and be a comfort to them.

    To our dear former neighbors and friends Nancie and Carlos. We were so sorry to hear of the passing of your brother Henry. I was surprised he was so young. He must have been the baby of the family. He sure was a regular at the Mooney house May God wrap his arms around Henry and bring him to his Forever Home in Heaven. Cherish your memories and keep them close to your heart. We miss you and hope you are well.

    Love, John and Judy Ela

    I am so sad to hear of Vic’s passing. He was a man filled with incredible joy in the midst of pain and suffering. He was an amazing example to me of how to trust in Jesus Christ as Savior regardless of what life brings. His confidence, faith and trust in God was exemplary. He really did rely on the grace of God alone to sustain him and grace to save him. His bright smile will be missed at Winthrop Street Baptist, but I know that if we trust in Christ we will see Vic again in glory with Jesus!

    My Uncle, how strange to say goodbye. My Uncle and Aunt have ALWAYS been so supportive and loving of me even when I wasn’t so loveable. Uncle Vic and I NEVER agreed on religion or politics, but he just loved me. I am so grateful that his struggle is over. Grateful that he can rest and just look out for Aunt Sue and Michael. I know that I am a better person having him in my life and I DEFINITELY know my mother, and my Aunts and cousins have loved and been loved by an extraordinary man. Uncle Vic, thank you for being you…ALWAYS.

    Susan and Mike,

    I was sad to hear of Vic’s passing. He was a dear friend at church and at work for many years. He was a man of deep love for Jesus amidst the pain of his suffering daily. He is suffering no more. Look forward to seeing Him in the Kingdom.

    Dear Nancie and Carlos and your family,

    Vic will be missed. His faithfulness at Winthrop Street Baptist Church was exemplary. As he arrived early, went to “his seat” and left right after worship,I felt honored that I could get a hug and an update on his struggle with cancer. Even during some of his most difficult times, he could make me laugh. His courage to endure so many experimental treatments was inspiring. Often he expressed concern for Sue more than for himself. He loved this life, but knowing the Lord Jesus as His Savior, he knew he had eternal life. My love and warm memories come with this note. May the Lord comfort you in your sorrow and uplift you by His promise, “I go to prepare a place for you.”

  19. Phillip Mayer on May 28, 2020 at 11:47 pm

    Susan. I am so very sorry for your loss. I enjoyed the years that I worked with Vic at Augat and I will miss his commentaries in the Sun Chronicle. May your memories bring you comfort and peace.

  20. Sue (Jesus) Kircorian on May 29, 2020 at 11:40 am

    My deepest sympathy to you Susie, Michael and his family and friends I worked with Vic for many years. He was the first person I told when accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior! He was a light in this world, he was a doer of God’s word, not just a talker. I also remember how he went out of the way to help me move with his black pickup truck. We used to say who hasn’t been helped to move by Victor. He had such a love for you Susie. May the Lord comfort you at this difficult time and bring to mind the wonderful memories of this blessed and wonderful man. I know that I will see you again Victor my brother in Christ! You didn’t lose your battle with cancer, you won eternity with the Lord.

    I never met “Goldpack” in person, but his loss is like losing a brother. I’ll miss his wit and the hours of discussion.
    Godspeed, Vic.

  22. Juliet F. on June 5, 2020 at 2:37 pm

    I have fond memories of Gold (Vic) he always kept positive. His faith was evident and so real. He was a genuine inspiration. I will miss him. Respectfully, Katts (from the chatroom)

  23. Donna Ray on June 5, 2020 at 11:25 pm


    I just saw this post so forgive me for the late condolences. I am very sorry for your loss- Vic was a great person and I enjoyed working with him at Augat.


  24. Louise Ramos on June 6, 2020 at 1:59 pm

    My sincere sympathy to you Sue and your son Mickael. I enjoyed the many years working with you and Victor. He was always in good spirits and such a gentleman. I used to enjoy his commentaries in the Sun Chronicle. He was so well informed.

    Again my sympathy.
