**In Loving Memory**

Victor D. "Vic" Routh Sr. was born in Kansas City, KS on July 5, 1960 to Wayne Routh and Jeanne Marie Lee. Vic went to high school at Schlagle High School in Kansas City. For the past 40 plus years he lived in Watertown, SD. He was a man of great kindness and generosity, whose selfless nature was evident to all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

On March 6, 1982 Vic married Cynthia Moe in Bradley, SD. Vic and Cindy shared their love for raising two wonderful sons; Victor Jr. and Matthew.

Vic spent over 20 years in the locksmith business. He owned and operated ABC Lock & Key in Watertown. Whether it be to make a key, get keys out of a locked vehicle, change locks or get a safe opened, he was there to help. His skills and dependability not only earned him the respect and gratitude of the community but also the trust and security he provided to countless individuals.

Beyond his locksmith profession, Vic was known for his love of racing pigeons alongside his good friend Rich, a hobby that brought him much joy over the years. He relished the freedom of riding his motorcycle on the open road. Vic's mornings were often spent in the company of friends, savoring coffee and conversation, moments that those who knew him will fondly remember. His spirit of giving and warmth will not be forgotten, and he will be sorely missed by all.

Vic's memory will be cherished and kept alive by his wife Cindy; his sons, Victor Routh Jr. and Matthew (Melissa) Routh, Watertown, SD; siblings, Aubrey Routh, Kansas City, KS, Vickie McKeehan, Kansas City, KS and Susan Soileau, Port Arthur, TX; along with countless friends and other family members whose lives he touched.

He was greeted in death by his mother and father.
