Victor E. Wiebe, 63, Rowena, died Sunday, August 31, 2014, at the Good Samaritan Village, Sioux Falls, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Family visitation will be 4-6 PM, Friday, September 5, 2014, at Heartland Funeral Home, with a short service at 5:30 PM, followed by Full Military Honors. A reception will follow at the VFW in Brandon.

Victor E. Wiebe was born September 12, 1950, to Ozzie and Joyce (Hammer) Wiebe in Sioux Falls. He was raised and educated in the Canton area, on the family farm with his six siblings. Vic was known to be a prankster and with his brothers, many stories are to be told of their antics. In 1968, Vic joined up with the US Navy and went to Viet Nam for 6 tours. Upon his return, he traveled the west coast and Arizona for some time before returning to South Dakota. Vic worked various jobs including John Morrell, Frisbee’s Plumbing and Heating, and the VA Hospital in Sioux Falls before his retirement in 2000. On June 30, 1984, Vic married his wife of 30 years, Dawn Webb, in Madison, SD. The couple had one daughter, Leah.

Vic was a free spirited kind of a person with an adventurous nature as those that knew his best, can attest to. From early on, he loved his Harleys and belonged to a motorcycle club. They were a second family to him and he truly loved to hang out, ride poker runs or just party with his friends. His other love was his family and a special treat was taking Leah for rides on the bike or watching his grand-daughter, Ella. She would entertain him as she just meandered around the room or shared her M-n-M’s with him.

Vic will be deeply missed by his wife, Dawn, his three children, Jon and Bill Wiebe, Goldsboro, NC and Leah (Jacob) Brennan, Sioux Falls; three grandchildren, Kayla & Andrew Wiebe, and Ella Brennan; four siblings, Duane (Mary) Wiebe, Canton, Gail (Mark) Jones, Burnsville, MN, Darla (Jim) Vennard, Beresford, and Darin (Joy) Wiebe, Kewaskum, WI; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

    Vic was a super fun and loving person who will always bring good thoughts among us who knew him. May his soul rest in peace now that his suffering has ended. Many thanks on his years of service to this great nation. Know that many are thinking of you all and praying for your journey through grief to be filled with many good memories and God’s healing grace.

    I worked with Vic at the VA Hopital for a couple years but it felt longer. He made the office fun and liked to joke around which is always appreciated. I came out to one of his bon fire summer time parties and they made me feel so welcomed even tho I didn’t know anyone. After he retired and I ran into him he said he now had a Honey-do list but smiled about it. He also loved his family and especially his young (at the time) daughter. I am so happy he was able to be a grandpa before his passing. My deepest sympathies.

    Dawn, my heart hurts for you. Vic was absolutely one of a kind and anyone who had the pleasure of calling him friend is hurting right along side of you. I will always remember how he would stop in to visit with my Dad when he was in the VA. My folks loved him! He was such a big part of our life that the kids grew up calling him Uncle Vic…and they still do. We loved him and will never forget him. The journey is over. Or has just begun. RIP dear friend until we meet again.

    Having known Vic for most of my life, I was saddened to here of his passing. We attended high school in Canton, served in the Navy during Viet Nam war, and saw each other during class reunions. Always a smile. See you on the other side.

  • Vic, I do remember all the good times we had…along with the Bjorneborgs, the Dobbies, the Mullinix’s, the Lundstroms..etc..etc. I didn’t realize all the tours of duty in Viet Nam either, but I salute you sir..soldier to soldier. Thanks for being there and being my friend..what a good guy to know all these years. I hope I can go out like you a brother, a friend and comrade. I thank you for all you have stood for..
