December 4, 1920 - March 22, 2010
William H. Victor, 89, of Corvallis died on March 22 after a long illness. He was born Dec. 4, 1920, to A.W. and Lillian Victor in Queens, N.Y. He attended the University of Virginia, and received a medical degree from the New York University School of Medicine. Following medical school, he was a captain in the U.S. Army in Germany, caring for wounded soldiers at the close of World War II. Following the war, Bill completed his medical residency and set up practice as a family physician in Wantagh, N.Y. On June 7, 1955, he married Marilynn Weise Victor in Kane County, Ill. “Doc Victor” was devoted to and loved by his patients. He also worked for many years as a physician for the Nassau County Police Department, ultimately serving as chief surgeon. He and Lynn retired to Santa Fe, N.M., before moving to Corvallis in 1994. His family remembers Bill as a gentle man and a gentleman, generous and kind. In addition to his family and his work, he thoroughly loved and shared his love of Broadway, Groucho Marx, Laurel and Hardy, the Gershwins, Ethel Merman, riding the waves at Jones Beach, fishing for “blues” in the Atlantic, skiing the slopes and exploring the back roads of Vermont, boxers, Boston terriers, dachshunds, the Giants, the Yankees, tennis, boxing matches, a good joke, a great meal and a good Old-Fashioned. We miss you, Dad. Bill is survived by his wife, Lynn; his daughter and her husband, Marge and Ralph Alig; his son and his wife, Bill and Shannon, of Ridgefield, Wash.; and five grandchildren, Meghan, Tim, Danny, Derek and Alex. Our heartfelt thanks and admiration go to the staff of the Mennonite Home of Albany and Benton Hospice Service of Corvallis for their great kindness, skill and support.
