Victor Wayman Hale was born December 16, 1936, in Hannibal, Missouri, the son of Cluster and Janetta (Robinson) Hale. He retired from the Rock Island Post Office.
He was a jack of all trades, but more than anything he was a businessman. He always had several side businesses, whether it be carpet sales, the grocery business, or his real passion, real estate.
Victor is survived by his beloved daughter, Victoria Bell of Blue Springs, Missouri; three grandchildren, Xavier D. Clark, Javin N. Whiteside, and Javon D. Whiteside, Jr.; a great-grandson, Ashton J. Whiteside; his siblings, Mary “Penny” Kyle, Chester Hale, Sharon Hale, and Gloria Vonentzminger, all of Detroit, Michigan; Victoria’s mother and Victor’s close friend, Lillie M. Bell; his devoted friend, Charles Muscovalley; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Charles Harding.
