May 2, 1932 - January 10, 2020
Victor L. Justice was born near Pikeville, Kentucky on May 2nd, 1932 to the parents of Abner and Mary Justice. He grew up on the family farm and graduated from Pikeville High School in 1950. That summer, America had entered the Korean War, and Vic, like his older brothers during World War II, volunteered to serve his country. He joined the recently formed US Air Force as a radar technician and was assigned to maintain an early warning radar site on a snowy mountain top in Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido. Vic excelled during his service and quickly rose to the rank of Staff Sergeant. When his 4-year enlistment ended, Vic returned to his home state and enrolled in the University of Kentucky. Demand was high for electrical technicians, and Vic quickly found employment as a field engineer for Burroughs Corporation, later merging to form Unisys. Over nearly 40 years, Vic worked on giant mainframe computers and experienced the world’s technology transition from vacuum tubes to transistors and circuit cards. He worked in offices spanning Detroit, Michigan, Charleston, West Virginia, Paducah, Kentucky, and Dayton, Ohio. In his spare time, Vic enjoyed camping, fishing, bowling, and watching sports and westerns. Vic passed away on January 10th, 2020. He is survived by his loving wife of 41 years, Janice (McGregor), and his sons, Neil, Gary and his wife Sally, Keith and his wife Jennifer, James and his wife Amanda, and John and his wife Karleine. He is also survived by his older sister Lorraine and older brother, Hassel and his wife Ethel. Vic is also a grandfather to 10 grandchildren, James, Phillip, Kallen, Andrew, Jared, Mallory, Landon, Sloan, Rhiannon, and Teagan. He was preceded in death by his son, Michael, and his sister and brother, Hazel and Hazard. Family will greet friends 3:00-6:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 25, 2020 at Schlientz-Moore & Reis Life Celebrations, 1632 Wayne Ave., Dayton.
