Milltown, New Jersey | Age 90

Vic was an Exempt Milltown Fireman - Navy Veteran - owner of Vic's Auto Parts & Service


Victor D. Barus, "Pop" passed away peacefully on Sunday April 12, 2020 at his home in Milltown, NJ. He was 90 years old. Born in East Brunswick, Victor was a proud resident of Milltown where he lived most of his life. He served in the United States Navy during the Korean War and was honored as a Hometown Hero in 2012. Victor owned Vic's Auto Parts & Service in East Brunswick, providing a service to his community for 25 years, before retiring in 2000. He was an Exempt Fireman with the Milltown Fire Department, and he was a member of the American Legion Post 25 in Milltown.

Vic enjoyed working in his yard and tending to his garden. He spent many evenings hosting family dinners and holidays. No matter where he was, he would always seem to know someone, which is a testament to the type of loving and kind man he was. He always strived to help others. Most importantly he was a hardworking, family man who always put his family's needs before himself. He will be deeply missed.
