Victor Hermanson

May 18, 1945-Oct. 17, 2009

Victor Hermanson, 64, of Detroit Lakes, died Saturday, October 17, 2009 at his residence.

Victor Hermanson was born to Alton and Gladys (Maring) Hermanson on May 18, 1945 in Detroit Lakes. He grew up in Detroit Lakes and enjoyed life around Hermanson's Resort on Big Floyd Lake, which his parents owned and operated.

Victor liked interacting with the guests, and they likewise enjoyed his company. He loved to fish and ride his bike during those summers. He became a resident of Lakes Homes on Summit Avenue in Detroit Lakes in 1983, and lived there the remaining years of his life.

Victor was a very special being. He will be missed by everyone who ever got to know him, especially his brothers, who were often amazed by the wonderful abilities of someone with many disabilities. Mom and Dad often thought that because Victor was so "normal," someday he would "awaken." That never happened, but Victor was just perfectly himself and that was more than enough for all of us!

Victor is survived by his two brothers, Ford (Patricia) Hermanson and Dean (Anne Hoffman) Hermanson, both of Detroit Lakes; as well as one niece and three nephews.

Preceding him in death were his parents, Alton and Gladys Hermanson.

Funeral services are set for 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22, at the West-Kjos Funeral Home in Detroit Lakes. There will be visitation for two hours prior to services on Thursday. Interment will be in Oak Grove Cemetery, Detroit Lakes.
