Victor Avon

February 4, 1942 - November 30, 2015


Vic passed away peacefully on November 30th, at the Lodge on 4th in Ladysmith following a long battle with cancer.

Born and raised in Powell River, BC Vic spent the majority of his adult life on the lower mainland.  He worked for Safeway in the produce department for over 40 years.   Following his retirement  Vic moved to Duncan to be closer to his brother Jim and spent most of his time doing all things outdoors.  Over the years Vic & Jim shared numerous trips to their cabin in the Chilcotin  and countless hours fishing at Port Renfrew – 2 places Vic loved.  When not on an epic hunting or fishing adventure Vic could be found gardening or chopping firewood.

Vic’s work ethic was second to none; he rarely slowed down, even in retirement, except to stop for coffee and ‘spin a yarn’.  Vic also loved driving, gambling and telling tales – the coffee spot will never be the same without him.

Vic is survived by his 3 children:  Russell (Roberta), Cathy (Mike), & Sandra (Stephan), 6 grand-children, 7 great grand-children, his sisters Marie & Rose,  his brother Jim (Carol) and good friends Bill and Joy.

Vic lived his life on his own terms; his body gave up long before he did.

The family is very grateful to all the wonderful employees and staff at the Lodge on 4th who contributed to making Vic’s last few months easier.

Vic, you will be missed! 

A gathering will be held in Port Renfrew in the spring.
