He is also survived by his brother Benjamin Mendoza (Pat), his sister Ester Mendoza, brother Mario Mendoza (Glenda), and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Victor had a passion for everything related to Art and Science Fiction. It was rare that he did not have a pen or pencil in hand, drawing something beautiful. He loved how technology gave him a way to communicate with other artists around the world and he loved sharing his work through Facebook groups and Twitter. Victor was known for his sense of humor and voice impersonations. He could always make the people around him laugh. He was a huge fan of Superman and his ability to fly. May he fly high among the angels now.
