Memories Timeline


  1. Victor Lumovich will be remembered for many fine qualities, among them: integrity, intelligence, charm, strength of character and kindness. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten by our family. Memory Eternal!

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with you. My last memory of Col. Lumovich is that he gave me a $5 bill the day we left Arlington for Taiwan when my father was transferred there. It was a kind and generous thing for him to do back in 1962 and I’ve never forgotten it. My love to all of you. Bev

  3. Memory Eternal! Our hearts and prayers will be with you, Victor. May God grant you His rest, and an eternal reward. Memory Eternal! We love you, Daisy. +Kris, Martha, Jana, Andrew, and Petr Sedmera

  4. Dear Lumovich family and friends, Our dear friend Vic has found eternal peace. We are were very fortunate to have known this great American patriot, a war hero, and a kind human being who touched the lives of our family in many special ways. We shared many meals and special ocassions together, in and around St. Luke, the center of spiritual lives of our families. As a founding member of our parish, Vic was a living history and he often shared his stories, anecdotes and insights, showing his amazing wit, great sense of humor and intellectual stamina that we all admired. Despite his incredible achievements in the military, he spoke about that period of his life with disarming modesty, always emphasizing interesting facts and twists and other people he knew and valued, not his own, remarkable place and role in that Great generation. We will always remember the laughs and conversations we shared, his spirit of optimism, great heart, and curiosity about everything. When speaking with Vic, one had a feeling of not only listening to living history of the twentieth century, European and American, narrated in a most light hearted, unassuming way, but also one that asks questions and probes deeply about views of others in ways that make people think harder. Invariably kind, good hearted, curious and with memorable sense of humor, Vic was a delight to be friends with. We will always keep him in our hearts. May God bless his soul and always be with him and his family. Zeljko, Branka, Nina and Alex Bogetic

  5. Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the passing of your husband, father, grandfather and father-in-law. Although only the passage of time can heal the pain of the loss of someone who has been such an integral part in all your lives, please know that you’re in my thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time.

  6. The first time I had occasion to ‘meet’ Victor Lumovich, was when I was about ten years old and his sister’s friend. I was in total and complete awe of the man. Then, some fifty years later, I had occasion to meet him again, and with the same sister of his. I quickly discovered that I was still in total awe of the man. He left an indelible impression on people. He will never be forgotten.

  7. We were sorry to hear of Victor’s passing and extend our sincere sympathies to Daisy, Chickie and his other relatives and friends. We first met Victor and Daisy several years ago when we attended Chickie’s mother’s funeral. We are so glad we’ve had the opportunity to know Daisy and Victor. He was a wonderful and interesting man. He will be greatly missed. (Tom is a son of Rosamond Zakula Schergen, friend of Chickie’s mother.)

  8. To Mrs. Daisy Lumovich and family, Our condolences on your loss. Victor was a remarkable man. We first met Victor when my mother, Rosamond, visited his sister about 10 years ago. We have seen him several times over the years; at a holiday party, during a church service and dinner, his sister Vukie’s funeral, and the last time last summer with my cousin, Carol Zakula, when she came through town. Each time Victor was always warm and welcoming like we were a part of his extended family. When Victor spoke, you could tell how much he valued and loved his family and friends, his youth spent growing up in Minnesota, and his love of this country. I feel that God blessed each of us when He placed Victor in the path of our lives.

  9. My condolences to Daisy and the whole Lumovich family in their great loss. I am so happy that I had the opportunity to visit with Victor and Daisy at their home last July. My parents, Miro and Mary Zakula, always enjoyed his company, and are I’m sure waiting with open arms in Heaven to greet him.

  10. Our Deepest Sympathy to all of the Lumovich Family. Victor was deeply loved and will be missed greatly. We are saddned for our loss, but feel joy in the knowledge that he is at peace with Our Lord. Memory Eternal! With Love, Jim, Michele, Rachel, and Rebecca Karabin

  11. I first met the Lumovich family when our family was stationed in VA back in 1958. Our families spent so many wonderful times together for the four years we lived there. I will always remember “Uncle” Victor and all of his great stories, his sharp wit, his zest for life, his strong work ethic, and the dedication he had for his family. Although we can’t be there today, we send our love and heartfelt sympathies to Aunt Daisy, Dave, Kathy, Michael and grandchildren. Thanks for all the fantastic memories–you will be greatly missed!

  12. Our sincerest condolences to Daisy and the Lumovich family. Victor was a wonderful person – a gentleman. Our prayers are with you. “The names of the righteous ones are inscribed in heaven.” Vjecnaja pamjat!

  13. Dear Michael, Our thoughts, prayers and condolences are with you and your family to honor your father’s passing. With love, Bill and Joan Danoff

  14. Dear Lumovic family,

    You have my deepest sympathy. I’ll always remember talking to Victor after church services and hearing experiences from his turbulent but rich life experience. Few people see what Victor lived through over the course of his life. I thought of this especially seeing his picture as a young B-17 pilot during World War II. I always appreciated that Victor never forgot his roots from Danilovgrad. Vjecnaja pamjat.
