Obituary for Victor Wallace Goings Victor Wallace Goings was born to Rebecca Cuny-Goings and Roland C. Goings on January 2, 1952 in Pine Ridge South Dakota. Victor attended primary and middle school in Pine Ridge, South Dakota and then went to High School at Marty Indian School, Marty, South Dakota. Victor worked various jobs during his life, starting at the PCC/Head Start as transportation and maintenance coordinator where he worked for 20 plus years. While at the Head Start as the transportation coordinator he developed a transportation plan that was recognized and utilized as the model plan for Indian Country. His efforts to have the best and safest school bus system showed his commitment to his job and compassion for the children. Later Vic worked for O.S.T. Department of Water Maintenance Conservation in Kyle and Pine Ridge as a maintenance/groundskeeper until the time of his passing. Victor was a very private but happy person and always had a warm smile for everyone he met. He loved to go fishing with his brother in-law Ron Talbot and sister Melody on Sunday afternoons. Victor was well known for his shade tree mechanic skills and he always helped friends and relatives keep their vehicles running well. His son Troy said one of his favorite times he remembers spending with his dad was when he could help Vic work on a car and hand him the tools. Victor and his brothers were known around town as the “Hot Rod Brothers” because they always had their vehicle looking super cool. His oldest son was always proud to be able to drive his dad’s vehicle on special occasions, like Prom or Homecoming. Heather always remembers cruising around with Vic listening to CCR. Angel will always cherish her wedding day when her dad gave her away, and she was also happy that her husband Mike and her dad got along really well as they had cars in common. Alecia and Casandra have special memories of their dad. They are grateful that he called them often and talked about his day and asked about their day. The girls will hold those long visits they had with him near to their hearts. Alecia and Casandra say Vic taught them a lot about cars, and has inspired Alecia to maybe go to mechanic school someday. Vic was close to Alecia’s boyfriend, Jerrel Rodriguez. They would spend time together working on cars and took trips to one of Vic’s favorite places to eat, The China House in Chadron, NE. Vic loved to joke and make us laugh and would often joke about his “blonde” moments when he was forgetful. Victor loved his children, and grandchildren and he always bragged about them as he was very proud of their accomplishments. Victor loved his family and had an especially close bond to his sister Joyce. Victor was well liked by his co-workers and became close friends with many of them. Victor passed to the spirit world on October 20th, 2018 and will be greatly missed by his family and friends. We are comforted to know that he is in a better place now surrounded by love, happiness and is probably driving a Hot Rod around in Heaven!
