Victor came to Walkerton in 1962 with his young family when he purchased Toplack Jewellers, renaming it Victor Lair Jewellers. Victor owned and operated the store until 2005 when his son Steve and his wife Shirley Anne took over the business. Victor always joked he was going to "hang it up" when he reached 50 years in the business and he did just that , retiring at the end of 2012. In his retirement he enjoyed his home and property where he spent many hours. He enjoyed time with his children, grandchildren and very recently 2 great grandchildren.
