Victor's Story

Text size

Victor Joseph Grondzki, Jr., age 94, of Dowling Park, Fla. passed Wednesday evening, Aug. 23, 2016 at his home. He was born in Trenton, NJ moving to Dowling Park in 1983 from Delaware. He was a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corp having served during WWII as Private First Class from 1942 until 1945. He worked as a mechanical supervisor for DuPont for 27 years. Victor loved to travel and over the years has traveled over 157,000 miles in his motorhome in the USA and Mexico with his wife Flo. During his stay at Dacier Manor, he was noted to play his harmonicas daily as well as singing along with his favorite CD's. One of his favorite passions was restoring biplanes and flying copilot with his son Larry. Vic (as his friends called him), was Grand Marshall in 2014 for the local Veteran's Day parade. He was a member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church. His family meant the world to him and he enjoyed being with them every chance he could get! Everyone always commented that Vic "always had a smile on his face!"
He is survived by two daughters, Christine (Don) Herauf, Sparks, NV; Theresa (Mark) Kreyche, Tustin, CA; one daughter-in-law, Barbara Grondzki, Woodstock, Ga.; two sisters, Florence Darmino and Jean Perkowski both of Whitting, NJ; three grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
Memorial services will be held in late November in Canton, Ga.
