Vic and I grew up together in Little Rock attending Jefferson elementary, Forest Heights Jr. and Hall High. Great memories playing basketball on the St. Paul Methodist basketball team with him. Stayed overnight at his house many times and got into untold trouble. As I recall, his mother Avery had one of the first convertible mustangs in Little Rock and we had great fun sneaking it out.It was with great sadness when I read this morning of his passing. Although we lost touch after he entered the Navy, I have always remembered what a good friend he was too me. Your family has my deepest sympathy.
Shawn, Meredith, and Victor,The past few days I have been thinking about my time spent at the Nelson house when I was growing up. It was always a special place for me and I always felt like a part of the family. Your dad included me in many of the family activities. Time spent on Lake Ouachita is among my favorite memories. Not only did I feel like he was my other dad but he was also a friend to my father. I remember how excited he would get about my dad’s bbq chicken. I pray that you all will feel the comfort and peace that only Jesus can give you at this time. Sending you all my love. Mr. Vic...thanks for the memories. Kitty Kelly will always cherish them.
My prayers are with the family during this heartbreaking event. I met Vic back in the 90’s when our kids met in high school. Always kind to me and I could sense he cared deeply for his family. My condolences and sympathy to the Nelson family. God bless you. 🙏
Daddy,I am going to miss you more than words can begin to express. I'm heartbroken I'm losing you, but am joyful at the same time now that all the immense physical and mental pain is gone. We are all so grateful we had that month with you at the Veteran's Home with you back to your sarcastic sense of humor. I will miss that. The important thing is all the sadness you lived with for so long is gone. And I am overjoyed you are now with your birth mother as well as Grandmother Nelson. I know you have waited you whole life to see your Mom. Please give her kisses for me and tell her I can't wait to meet her!!!I love you Daddy ❤
I truly loved this man, we had many conversations about life, his grandkids and family. A great personality and some good jokes. I will miss him terribly and will miss our talks. Rest in peace Victor, my friend.
