Hi I'm Vic

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Southren California. I started a Dental Laboratory and operated it for thirty years.

About Me

I grew up in Southern California. After I graduated from high school, I served a mission in Montana. Upon returning home, I married my sweetheart (47 years now) in the Los Angeles Temple. I served two years in the Army during the Viet Nam war. Unpon returning home, I opened my own dental laboratory which I ran for 30 years. I specialized in fixed prosthetics and implants. In running my lab, I had the opportunity to work with many Hollywood Stars and made "Hollywood Flippers" for the movie studios. I am the father of 3 daughters, the father-in-law to 2 sons-in-law and the grandfather to 4 beautiful granddaughters and 2 handsome grandsons. I love genealogy and serve as the Family History Consultant in my ward . . . and I am a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the teachings of the importance of the family and my testimony of Jesus Christ and the Prophet Joseph Smith. We continue to live under the direction of a Prophet of God today and his twelve apostles in the same organization that existed with Christ.

How I live my faith

For many years, I served as a Scout Master in So. CA. I loved working with the scouts and other scouters in seeing the growth and development of our youth and how important this program is. Now I am absolutely consumed with genealogy research. I love helping others find their roots and putting families together. I have served in many callings in between that have offered so much growth and personal development. I also love sharing the Gospel with others as it is wonderful to see the Light of the Gospel change lives.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Mormon Missionaries continue to follow the teachings of Jesus found in Matthew 28:19 "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations". As a member of His Church, it is important for us to share the knowledge and joy we experience through our membership in His Church. Show more Show less
