Victor was born in Nekoma, ND on November 12, 1917 to Joseph and Anna (Wilhelmi) Lorenz. He attended school in Nekoma, graduating in 1935. Following graduation he moved to Flint, MI, where he worked for Precision Parts, and later moved to Denver, CO, where he was employed by Gates Rubber Company.
On June 5, 1941, Victor married Svanfridur (Lolo) Thomason in St. Edward’s Catholic Church in Nekoma, ND. They lived in Denver until the spring of 1942 when they returned to Nekoma to the family farm. In 1966 they moved to Langdon, but Victor continued farming until 1979. They enjoyed 29 winters in Mesa, AZ, but always looked forward to their return to Cavalier County in the spring. Victor and Lolo moved to Wheatland Estates in May, 2006, and then to Maple Manor Care Center in January 2009.
Victor was a member of St. Alphonsus Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus. He served on the Nekoma School Board, Nekoma Farmers Union Board of Directors, and Brentwood West Homeowners Association Board in Mesa, AZ.
