Victor Ralph Dollar
Victor Ralph Dollar passed away on April 9th, at age 98. He lived a long and full life. He was many things to a lot of people, but mostly he was a loving dad, grandpa and great grandpa. He was born in Chicago, Illinois, but spent most of his youth in Missouri. During the Great Depression he left home to work in the CCC camps. From there he became a Merchant Marine, where he rode cargo ships during World War II. He eventually rode a lumber ship into Newport where he met and married “Mitzi” his wife until she passed away in 1994. He worked as an electrician for several years, while also selling real estate and trying to raise oysters. He never stopped looking for the next project to take on.
He is survived by his daughter Diane and son Randy (Karen), his grand kids, Kyle (Nicole), Kory (Alex), Nicholas, Melissa, Kylee (Alex) and Rachel along with seven great grand kids. He was also the step dad for three daughters and numerous grand kids and great grand kids.
On the day he passed away, he was asked if he had any words of wisdom to offer. After a moment of thinking about it, he said, “Find a Good Fishing Hole”.
