To share a memory, thought or condolence with his family please visit the funeral home website @ Victor Arroll Miller was born August 13, 1943, in Muscatine, Iowa the son of Ralph and Clara (Braddy) Miller. He had worked most of his adult life as a general laborer, for more than 30 years with Bandag Corporation in Muscatine. Vic liked the simple life, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, dirt track racing, a good game of pool, working in his yard, tending to his flowers, working with wood making prized pieces for family and friends. He was proud of his jeep, and his new yard tractor, could spend hours just driving the back roads of Iowa with his favorite co-pilot, Marcene; and was known to many as one very intuitive soul, never bashful to ask a question! But the cherry on his sundae was his family, friends and his dog, Bridget. His family includes his very significant other, Marcene Soukup; daughter, Viki Grau (Jovo Pilipovic); granddaughter, Alyssa “Cricket” Grau; Marcene’s sons, Jody Kirk and Jamie Kirk (Stacy); and Victor’s sister, Alberta Kight; and many other family members and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Sheila (Forbes) Miller; and siblings, Ralph Miller, Ila Dornbush, and Betty Reed. Friends and Family are invited to join Vic's family for a Memorial Lunch and gathering time at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, May 8, 2021 at the Columbus Junction Face Track (building near the restrooms). Vic had requested no funeral, instead he wanted to have a family/ friends luncheon for everyone to eat, gather and share memories. Before we eat a few car drivers will be taking Vic around the race track for his last victory lap. Pulled pork sandwiches will be provided, but we are asking everyone attending to bring a side to share with everyone, a drink, and table service for your own family. Camping at the race track is available (Contact Tony Humiston).
