Our Dad garnered the respect of everyone he met and was loved by many as is evidenced by the turn out both yesterday and today. He treated everyone like family. He had a calm demeanor and a great sense of humor. Vic Sr. was a child of parents and grandparents who emigrated from Italy. He had five sisters and was the only son (I know what that’s like). He grew up in the Bronx, in the shadow of the old Yankee Stadium (Macombs Dam Park) which is now the site of the new stadium.
