Dr. Victor Francis Daveikis

Victor Francis Daveikis, born Dec 9, 1968, died Feb 14, 2021. Parents Victor and Frances Daveikis (predeceased). Victor is survived by his three children that he made with their mom Kathleen (nee Squirrell)—Alexandra (17), Evan (16), and Jack (14). Sisters Melissa and Dillon Daveikis of Sudbury, sister Paulina Hill of Winchester, brother John Daveikis of Elmira, and Derrick Daveikis of Sudbury. Nephews Darryl, Lewis and Aaron Hill of Ottawa, and Myles and Dillon Daveikis of Sudbury. We may think that he died too soon but in retrospect, we see that he condensed a lot of living into a short life span. We saw at an early age that Victor Junior was blessed and gifted with brains, talent and charm. Mom said that the best of Dad and her went in to making “the True Junior”, after all, he was named after both of his parents. When he set his sights on a target, he pursued it with laser focus until he attained it, then he would reach further until he mastered it.....whatever “IT” was......and there were many, many things that he was very good at, like school, Scale Models, Cadets and music. Collecting friends from around the world proved to be one of his best traits. Vic attended Laurentian University for his undergraduate studies. Many will remember ‘Vic and the Meat Kings’, the band he was in during his Laurentian years.(YouTube has videos.) He went on to attend the Dentistry Program at Western University and then to private Dental practice. Victor was diagnosed with MS and it slowly started to erode his dexterity and abilities. He left Dentistry but held on to the friendships that he made throughout his whole life. Visitors and family were always welcome at his century home in Elmira and his door was always open. He loved to cook and entertain and he did them both with style and aplomb. Many of us will miss Vic’s BBQ and Smoker offerings.....so delicious! Cell phones and internet gave him a great way to stay connected with friends and family. Vic lived life large! No matter what he was into, he went into 100%. He was also ridiculously handsome with a quick and beautiful smile that he shared easily. He was bright, artistic and creative and he passed those genes on to his kids. Have you seen them lately? They are all beautiful, bright, tall and talented! So glad that they have some of the best of Victor and that he can live on through them. Our little brother will be sorely missed but so fondly remembered. Celebration of Life is tentatively set for July 17, 2021, pending Covid 19 restrictions.

  1. I met Victor at the University of Western Ontario Dental School and found a fast friend. He was definitely a character to all who met him. Always with a smile, he enriched everyone around him, colleagues and patients alike! Our paths diverged after school, but I was lucky to meet up again when he moved to the Durham region for a time. My condolences to the family on his loss. My memories of Vic are always accompanied by a great story and a smile. Those memories will never fade.

  3. We dated for a year or so in high school. His obituary describes him as I remember him from back then. Handsome, funny and adventurous. I think back on those days and smile. So sorry for your family’s loss.

  4. I met Victor when I was 11 years old, when I’d lied about my age to get into the Army Cadets (765 Copper Cliff Highlanders). He was 4 years older than me. I also met Mikko Hautala, Derek Erkila, Kari Launen, Russel Salo, Andy Pednaud, Dave Olsen, his younger brother John, and others. This was a group of completely hilarious, advanced, ambitious, united guys. I’d never witnessed anything like that in my life to that point. They let me into their group and gave me some of their humor, confidence and bravado and camaraderie. It was clear Vic was a ringleader, who could stand out in any group, unbelievably funny. Victor, by example, showed me how one could fairly gracefully navigate the teenage years, be yourself, hang on to your uniqueness. I still credit all of these guys, and Victor for showing me how a young guy should conduct himself, I really didn’t have any examples at home. For this part of my life experience, and the structure it provided. I am eternally grateful. Victor and I stayed in touch and were social for many years after Cadets, and he was always someone I looked up to. I’d also like to thank Mel and Dillon, for being so nice to me as a very young man, just because I was Vic’s friend. Your brother made a big impact on a lot of people.
    Sincere condolences.

  5. I attended CVDCS with Vic. We used to make up Harlequin romance stories by flashing notes in English class — it was like a tennis match as everyone in our eyeline would swivel back and forth between us as the story unfolded — usually very graphic and lots of humour. People with his level of intelligence and energy are rare. RIP Victor.

  6. The times I shared with Victor are amazing and cherished memories of a witty, generous, brilliant, capable, strong man rich in character. We traveled continents together, partied like rock stars, made amazing friends, and shared hard times as well. He is a part of my life that will be forever missed.

  8. I am really starting to believe in the saying “only the good die young” as this seems to happen all to often. No words I can ever come up with can make anyone feel better about losing such an outstanding, kind, caring person. If everyone could be at least a quarter of the person he was, the world would be a better place. My condolences to the family, friends and anyone who loved him.
    His light will shine bright forever.
