SOUTH PORTLAND - Victor H. Huck Jr., 74, died unexpectedly, July 24, 2012 at his home with his wife by his side. Vic was a true family man, whether working on the family farm as a boy in Indiana, or raising his four children or spending time with his four grandchildren. Vic was born in Evansville, Indiana on January 15, 1938, the eldest of seven children. He attended school in Evansville before bravely joining the United States Coast Guard without ever having seen the ocean. While stationed in Portland, he met his future wife Judith Sandberg. They shared 53 years of marriage while raising four children, Theresa, Victor III, Mary-Jane and Shawn. Victor was a lifelong advocate of education. He sacrificed so his four children could have the best education possible. He was so proud to have sent all of his children through parochial schools. Victor retired from the USCG after having spent 23 years, mostly on weather ships in the North Atlantic. Victor later worked in various jobs including a job in the medical supply field for the past 10 years. Victor was always involved in his community. He served in the E-7-8-9 Club, Warrant Officers Club and the Cutterman's Association. He enjoyed attending any sporting event his granddaughters were involved in; which often meant traveling great distances. His favorite past times included researching ancestry, cooking, computers and reading. He was an avid fisherman and sports fan. He would, and did, go anywhere to watch the Atlanta Braves. He is predeceased by his parents, Victor, Sr. and Carolyn (Peak) Huck, and nephews Seamus and Thomas Nee. Victor is survived by his loving wife Judith (Sandberg) Huck; sons, Victor H.
