Victor O. Struewing, 76

Victor O. Struewing, 76, Batesville, died Thursday, April 24, 2014, at University Hospital, Cincinnati. 

Born Jan. 13, 1938, in Batesville, he was the son of Philomena (Pitstick) and Otto Struewing. He married Mary Ann Weberding April 14, 1962, at St. Charles Catholic Church, Milan. 

Vic served in the Army Reserves and went on to work 43.5 years at Batesville Casket Co. as a truck driver before retiring in 2000. He was a member of Holy Family Catholic Church, Oldenburg.

He dearly loved his grandchildren and relished having them around. Not far behind was Lucy, his toy terrier, and he delighted in spoiling them all. In his younger days, Vic was an avid rabbit and squirrel hunter. Some of the boys remember Dad calling school to let them know he was taking them on a “field trip” so they could hunt with him. He developed an appreciation for nature and the outdoors and would often share with his family some of the animals he’d spot during a ride in the country or trip to the city. This is perhaps what led to the purchase of the family pet, Sylvester the donkey.

His family teased that while Dad was "a meat-and-potatoes guy," they got a kick out of the fact that he fancied himself a bit of an amateur food critic. They also mentioned his 50-plus-years subscription to National Geographic magazine as well as enjoying a cold beer or good glass of scotch. And as the kids got older, they learned to appreciate they didn’t necessarily get what they wanted; instead, they got what they needed, whether that was “a kick in the pants or sound advice.”

Vic is survived by his wife; daughter and son-in-law Amy and Mike Jones, Oldenburg; sons and daughters-in-law John and Lisa, Batesville, Roger and Tracy, Batesville, Greg and Mandi, Oldenburg, Mike and Lisa, Batesville, and Mark and Tasha, Hamburg; grandchildren Kara, Chris, Jared, Gus, Laine, Jack, Sara, Chad, Corey, Reed, Onika, Eva, and Lila; and great-granddaughter Jema.
