He was born on May 11, 1943 to Frances (Perucca) and Dr. Francis Toscana, DDS in Deadwood, SD and resided in California during WW2. They moved back to Lead after the war and eventually moved to Rapid City in 1950 where he resided the remainder of his life. He graduated from Cathedral High in 1961, where he was a Catholic High School All-State basketball player. He attended various colleges, but mainly was a graduate of the school of life.  He worked for Buckingham Trucking for several years. In 1968, he went to work for Rapid Chevrolet, eventually working his way to managing partner. He retired in 2005 and continued to mentor his son in various car dealerships in Gillette, WY and Pierre, SD until his death.


He married Dixie Stalcup in May 1971. Together they shared one son and he became a loving stepfather to her 6 children. They made a wonderful life raising their 7 children together on Janet Street.


He lived life to the fullest. He loved family and had many close friends throughout his life that he spent time with hunting, fishing, golfing and playing cards. He was a particularly cutthroat cribbage and bridge player, and pheasant sharpshooter. His best times were spent at Spring Creek near Pierre, Legacy Farms, Alaska, and in Palm Springs with Dixie.


Dixie and Victor were very generous throughout their lifetimes. He was a lifelong member of the Elks and served on the boards of Sky Ranch for Boys and Black Hills Workshop. He had a fondness for the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology where he encouraged all his relatives and many others to attend.
