Victor was born August 3, 1902 to Wesley Nason and Hattie Smith of Fredericton Junction, New Brunswick, Canada. He married Clara Hartt Sept 22, 1926 at the United Baptist Church parsonage in Fredericton, NB. He always had a friendly greeting to all and offered help to anyone he could. He was 6' 3" in his stocking feet. Dad worked in St. John, NB. and came home on weekends on the train. His first car was a 1923 model A or T and even my mom used to drive it. He also bought a 1938 Desoto. He could play any instrument but his specialty was the clarinet, and he played it in the local band. He also played a fiddle, organ, guitar, saxaphone, and trumpet. On Sundays, the family would gather around the living room organ and piano to sing Hymns & other songs accompanied by both Mom and Dad. Victor died suddenly on March 8, 1954 when he fell 11 ft from a crane at the West Saint John dock area. Victor had been working astride the boom of the crane when a bar on which he was standing split, causing him to lose his balance and tumble over backwards. The funeral was held at the Fredericton Jinction United Baptist Church on Thursday, March 11, at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. Internment was in Gladstone Cemetery. Clara and Victor's children: Miriam, Vernon, Walter, Ross, Burton, Glenna, and Carol.
