He was born in Shattuck, Ok, June 6, 1941, to Wyette and Ethlyn (Douglas) Messner.

Victor and Loreta (Druce) were married on September 19, 1970 after he returned home from harvest. During their time together four children were born. He continued to do farm work throughout the years and eventually went to work for Lipscomb County in 1979 as a heavy equipment operator. After 23 years, he retired.

During retirement, he spent a couple of summers working for Baldwin Harvesting and enjoyed every moment he got with his grandkids.
