*Memories of Vic Tooker &Family*
Steamboating colleagues:
Thanks, Bob, for the above with the link to the 'Wilmington News Journal' piece RE: the late Vic Tooker. Many people don't know Vic was also a dedicated military man active and later in his reserve years with, I think, the U.S. Air Force.

I was around Vic and family enjoying their music on the DELTA QUEEN along with other venues Betty Blake and the company needed them but admit I didn't know him as well as many of you. After their gigs on the DQ, Vic and family would take a break, rest--and I respected that not bugging them on deck or in the boat's public rooms. Thanks for your posting and jogging our memories.
