Victor Vogler Jr., age 79, died November 27th, 2022, at Swedish Medical Center in Englewood, Colorado. He was born to Victor and Rosa (Wassemiller) Vogler Sr. on November 21st, 1943, in Colby, Kansas. He grew up on the family farm a mile South of Monument.
He married Maysel Ruppe on May 27th, 1963, and they began their married life on that same farm where Vic grew up. They lived there for 26 years before moving to a home on the South side of Monument where they were still living until his death. Vic and Maysel had three children, Bridget (Kim) Denigan, Stephanie Swart, and Kyle Vogler. The couple were involved in farming and during the early years of their marriage Vic worked at the Bertrand Elevator in Monument during the winters. He had also spent a year before their marriage working construction with Lewis Mershon where he learned many skills from that master craftsman.
Vic enjoyed working with his hunting dogs, and just sitting on the porch in the summer watching the newborn calves play. He liked all kinds of hunting, but goose hunting was his favorite, with quail hunting a close second. The most important aspect of his hunting though was the fellowship with good friends. Trap shooting was another hobby where he won medals and enjoyed reloading his own shells. Vic was baptized in August of 2012.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Vic Sr. and Rosa Vogler and his daughter Kim Denigan. He is survived by his wife Maysel; his daughter Stephanie (Terrall) Swart; son Kyle (Sandra) Vogler; his grandchildren, Chelsea (Ryder) Eakin, Paige (Alex) Nuss, Braedon and Brooke Vogler; three great grandchildren Callie and Carsyn Eakin and Easton Nuss; Kim's husband Dale Denigan and his sister Betty (Jim) Bartlett and their family.
