Online Condolences


  1. Mary, Dorothy, and ALL of Vic’s Family – I am ashamed to say that I only now learned of Vic’s sudden passing. Our family was fortunate to have known Vic since moving to Barrington in 1968. He was a wonderful husband and father, but was also a man who meant so much to so many in town. He was kind, patient, and understanding – and always “there” – at Vic’s Texaco – and, with Tootsie Pops for the kids, of course! I have so many good memories that go way beyond filling our tanks and repairing our vehicles. Vic was so excited when I met and married my husband Albert who was a policeman in town at the time. He was so good to my parents and all our family – saw us through many ups and downs in life – always ready with a listening ear and hugs. He was often in our thoughts and memories of many good times. Now, our thoughts and prayers are with you and all your family. Please feel free to be in touch with me, Mary and Dorothy. My e-mail is below. Most of all, please accept our family’s deepest sympathy and apology for not knowing about his passing at the time. With Love and Prayers for Peace of Mind, Heart, and Soul – and, Blessings Always! – Karen Kuhn Antonio & Family

  11. Dear Mary, Dorothy and Milos,

    I was so very sad to learn of the passing of your amazing father today. He was the kindest and most caring man to everyone who had the honor to know him. I enjoyed all our talks, his tips on keeping my car on the road, where to get the best tire deal. Always a candy and a special treat for Easter. Vic was so very proud of the three of you. His eyes sparkled when he spoke of you. Barrington lost a beautiful man.

  12. So saddened to learn of Vic’s passing. Vic was a loving kind sincere thoughtful and devoted husband and father. He dedicated himself to helping others and was very humble and modest about the critical role he had in a Barrington regarding our safety. May his lifelong actions be a model for the rest of us to uphold.

  13. Dear Mary and Dorothy so sorry to hear of Vic’ s passing. I would always stop by the station occasionally and he would always share stories about my father and the family when they were growing up in Bristol. He will be greatly missed.

  14. So sorry for your loss. He was such a great man. He always had a smile and a candy for all. He will be missed.

    James remembers as a child your father taking him to your Grandmother’s house for lunches each Saturday and all the chats at the garage as the years went by.

  20. Dear Mary and family, Vic was the nicest, caring man. It was a privilege to have known him. He not only was so nice to me and my husband Joe, but he always took care of my Mom’s too. My brother Gary worked for him all through high school and even after he moved away he never forgot to give Vic a visit when he came here to visit us. There are no perfect words to describe Vic. This man never turned away when someone needed help. The entire community will grieve his loss. My sympathies to you all and may God bless.
    Sincerely, Ann Conti Borges
