Obituary for Victor A Skaar

Victor Andreas Skaar, 86, died Tuesday, December 31 at home after an extended illness. He leaves behind his wife of 60 years, Vivian Skaar, son Donald Skaar and wife Jeanne (Karl) Skaar, daughter Kristin (Skaar) Banko and husband Jeffrey Banko and four grandchildren: Lucy Skaar, Christina, Jackson and Allison Banko. He was predeceased by his son Jeffrey Skaar and a daughter-in-law, Eleanor Skaar.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Victor’s parents Sem and Inga summered in Griggstown, NJ with their four sons. After serving in the Navy from 1952-54, Victor met his future wife at Vasa Home Park in Budd Lake, NJ. The young couple married and raised their three children in Belle Mead, NJ. Victor and Vivian continued to be active participants at Vasa throughout the years and enjoyed celebrating their Scandinavian heritage and traditions with friends and family. Victor was also a 60+ year member of Palestine Lodge #111, Free and Accepted Masons.

Victor worked as a Union Carpenter and Dockbuilder for many years and had his own business, Skaar and Son Carpentry with his son, Donald, in the greater Montgomery area. He was a charming and generous man who was always there to lend a hand to his neighbors and friends. He was quick with a smile and delivered his famous one-liners with a glint in his sparkling blue eyes.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Shriners Children Hospital or to an organization of their choice.
