On August 1, 2018, Victor Lamont Haile, loving husband and father of two, passed away at age 45.
Victor was born March 12, 1973 in Brooklyn, New York to Earl and Francine (Haile) Wilson. He spent his educational years in Brooklyn and graduated from Prospect Heights High School. Seeking a stable and enriching environment in which to grow financially and raise a family, Victor, the love of his life Yolanda and their two children relocated to Columbus, Ohio. There, on June 6, 2009 Victor and Yolanda got married at the McCoy Center.
Always exhibiting a strong work ethic, Victor tried his hand at various occupations before he sought employment at the Frank S. Gary Company, where he worked until the time of his death.
Fun loving and soft spoken, Victor lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures. He was a sports fanatic who would spend hours watching the SportsCenter news television program. His love of sports further extended into his two favorite pastimes, shooting pool and playing poker. He was a quiet man who didn’t ask for much out of life and enjoyed all it had to offer.
Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife Yolanda, daughter Keasia Sky, son Daquan, mother Francine Haile, brothers Earl Haile, Daniel Haile and wife Michelle, brother -in -laws Victor Grant, Larry Grant and Tarbis Grant, aunts Odell McCoy, Leslie Ann Haile, Jacqueline Glover, Marilyn Haile -Rainey (Wayne), Olivia Rouse and husband, uncles David Wilson, William Wilson, Gregory Wilson, the Coley family, (close cousins with whom he grew), and several nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
