Victor Alfred Farr
Sept 15, 1940 – Oct 27, 2022
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Victor Alfred Farr on October 27, 2022, at the age of 82. Beloved husband of Betty for 60 years. Proud father of Victor Jr. (Linda), Jo-Anne (Devon), Tom (Beth), and Anthony (Shelley). Cherished grandfather of Brandon, Brittany (Jake), Michelle (Garrett), Jessica (Jared), Max, and Gabby. He will be most missed as Nanu to his great granddaughters Violet and Millie. Also survived by his sisters Vivian, Isabelle, Eileen, and Daria, and cousin Marlene. Loving uncle to many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his brothers and sisters, Joe, Gladys, Doris, and Tony.
Vic immigrated from Malta to Canada with his parents and 8 brothers and sisters in 1952. He soon established himself as a mogul in the lumber industry in Toronto. He later rebranded Victoriaville Hockey Sticks to Vic and it became a Global brand under his guidance. He dabbled in horse racing, but his passion was golf. Dad always said he didn’t have friends but he had lots of “acquaintances”. He will be missed by many at the National Golf Club, Port Carling Golf Club, and the Fox Club in Florida.
The family would especially like to thank Nurse Thera from Paramed, Susan Clark, Tammy, Vicky, and Cynthia for being Vic’s Team of Angels as well as Dr. Cole Krensky at South Muskoka Memorial Hospital for making the end of Vic’s life comfortable.
A private service was held at Cavill Funeral Home in Gravenhurst. Memorial contributions in Vic’s memory may be made to Andy’s House Hospice in Port Carling, ON.
