  1. MSgt. Jack Vicory will surely be missed by many. He was a great leader and one of the best teachers at Butler High School.
    He was later a friend for many years and co-member of Burns Memorial UMC. He still gave me many lessons on how life works. I appreciate all his words of knowledge and sharing his many adventures throughout his life. I am forever appreciative of his understanding and giving me grace for not always being 100% together at school due to my home life and encouraging me to be a Leader.
    God Bless his family as I know they will all surely miss him.

  2. Msgt (Top) Vicory was a truly caring man who’s approach to life was an inspiration to generations of people and families he had the opportunity to come into contact with. As a personal friend to my Mother the late Peggy Theriault, teacher at Butler, his words and support were more than encouragement they were a part of who she became as a teacher and person. He was strongly impactful to my life and often provided the encouragement and grounding I needed to find who I was to become. With his unquestionable morals and principles his impact was above reproach, he had a wit that was often the source of uplifting and supportive guidance to so many. His spirit will no doubt live on through the lives he affected. “Jack” you are loved and missed. William, Claudia, Richard, and all the Vicory Family, thankyou for sharing your father with us.

  3. It was always a pleasure to go over and speak to Mr. Vicory at Hillcrest Baptist Church during our meet and greet time each Sunday. I have missed him being at church during the last few months. I prayed for God to heal him so he could walk again but God was ready to have him graduate into Heaven. I pray for God to comfort his family and friends as only God can do. We met some wonderful friends by knowing Mr. Vicory. What a gift to us.

  4. Sgt Vicory was both a great teacher and friend. His love of history was an inspiration for many of us.
    Even this many years later he knew many of his students by name and would greet us if we were anywhere and he saw us.

  5. MSGT. Vicory, is a man for whom I have only the highest regard. As a Butler Marine Corps JROTC student, he inspired, taught, led, encouraged and set the highest standards for all the cadets along with LtCol. Whitlock, They made quite the team. MSGT. Vicory was a man who got the job done, an NCO who had every quality, capability and instinct that any commissioned officer had. He shared and helped me and others learn lessons only he could teach us through his experiences in the Corps…honor, valor, courage, preparation, teamwork, spirit, humility….God, Country, Family. I have missed him since graduating 50 years ago but thought of him often. My respect for him is of the utmost and I pray he knew of his positive influence upon myself and many other boys whom he helped lead into adulthood and manhood.

    My condolences and prayers to the family and my hope that his passing was peaceful. He dedicated his life of being a warrior and that preparation in the desire for peace so that his readiness never be needed or necessary to enact. Peace on earth and peace in the presence of the LORD Jesus are the highest standards and ideals of a man and “our” MSGT. Vicory has achieved both. I can see his year service bars on his forearm sleeve and his rank stripes on his upper arm sleeve and think…what an accomplished man, what an accomplished life ! Thank you, MSGT, Vicory ! Job well done, good and faithful servant. SEMPER FI !!!
