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.
