It was at this time, Victor became a parishioner and long-time usher in support of St. Luke’s RC Church in Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ.

Later in life, Victor remained a loving and caring son to Emilia, always keeping a watchful eye on his mother and caring for her health. He was an avid listener of Italian music and known for frequently watching old cowboy westerns.
