Victor Armin Zoch was born in Winchester, Texas on February 28, 1933, to Theodore Zoch and Adeline (Schulze) Zoch. He died on July 21, 1994 in Austin after a courageous fight with cancer. He is survived by his wife, Dorothy; a brother, Ted; and a sister, Dorothy.
Vic and I had many things in common: We were both teachers, we both married late in life, and we were both interested in our Wendish heritage. Beata and l enjoyed our trips to the country to visit Vic and Dorothy and will always remember their friendship and hospitality. Whether we were discussing the world of teaching or the "good old days" in the country, I always found Vic to be an interesting person to chat with.
I visited Vic in Seton Hospital shortly before his death. Although exhausted by the battle with his illness, he didn't complain or feel sorry for himself. I called his brother a couple of weeks later to see if Vic had gone home yet. By sad coincidence, I learned that he had gone home that afternoon - this time to his heavenly home.
Vic worked hard for the Texas Wendish Heritage Society and was serving as Vice-President of the Society at the time of his death. Vic was the type person who loved his work, family, and friends. Most importantly, he loved his Lord. We will all miss him, but he will always be with us in our memories.
