He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 68 years, Patricia Ann (Burnison) Mason; his parents, Edward and Anna Mason; brothers: Richard, Eugene, and Albion; sisters: Eleanor, Adeline Paulison, Delores Moulton, and Bernadette Wilson.
He is survived by son, Bruce Mason of Boulder, CO; daughters, Linda Hinrichs (James) of Arden Hills, MN, and Debra Hautzinger (Gary) of Omaha; nine grandchildren: Jessica Pieklo (Kelly), Scott Hinrichs (Cara), Kevin Hautzinger (Lacey), Katherine Mason, David Hinrichs (Keri), Daniel Mason, Susan King (Patrick), Meghan Hennessey (Adam), and Amy Hinrichs (Kevin Korinek); 11 great-grandchildren.
Vic grew up in South Omaha, proud of his Polish Heritage. He maintained ties throughout his life to his early roots and to the many friendships forged during his childhood years. A 1941 graduate of Creighton Prep H.S. and a 1945 graduate of Creighton University, he became a certified public accountant in 1948.
During World War II, he served as a radar maintenance technician with the U.S. Army Signal Corps.
Most of his professional career was spent as the chief financial officer for J.L. Brandeis and Sons Department Store.
Vic enjoyed gardening, golf, reading, and writing. His favorite reading included history, biographies, and all of the works of Charles Dickens. In his later years, he devoted many hours to researching his extended family genealogy.
Vic’s most important pastime, however, was spending time with his family. He never stopped looking forward to phone calls and visits from his grandchildren. His many stories of the old days as well as his humor will be missed by all of his family!
