Victor (Vic) Lee Hilton, 86, of Haines City, Florida, passed away Wednesday, August 7, 2019, after a brief illness.
He was born October 31, 1932, the only child of Garland and Mabel (Oden) Hilton in Fairmount, Indiana. He was a graduate of Fairmount High School and the General Motors Institute. Vic was a Korean War veteran and worked at Fisher Body in Marion, Indiana until his retirement.
Vic married LouAnn (Ewigleben) Wolfe on December 26, 1970, and they spent their years together enjoying traveling, fishing and boating at their home on Lake Webster, and ultimately living their dream at the retirement community of Sweetwater in Haines City.
Vic was a past commander at Fairmount American Legion Post 313 and also served in state office capacities for the Legion. He was always up for a friendly game of poker and a relaxing round of golf. But his greatest love, and most honed skill, was his ability to fish. His trophy bass still hangs in the clubhouse at Sweetwater.

He is survived by 6 daughters, Kristi (David) Wilt, and Karla (John) Boals, both of Port St. Lucie, Florida, Cathy (Jeff) Maxson of Hobe Sound, Florida, Carolyn Hilton Salary of Lakeland, Florida, Ann Fennimore of Richmond, Indiana and Teri (Kelly) Hawes of Anderson, Indiana; and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Irene Anne Lord- June 21, 1942 - July 30, 2019
Irene Lord of Stuart, Florida unexpectedly ascended from this life on Tuesday, July 30, 2019. She left a gaping hole in the hearts of all who knew her. Loving mother to Veronica, Kelly, Denise, Dennis & Randall; doting grandmother to Steven, Alix, Tiffany, Emiley, Randall, Amanda, Lindsey & Victoria and a generous, warm-hearted friend to many.
Irene was fiercely independent, selfless to a fault and didn’t want a fuss made over her at all. Born in Maine, she moved around a bit before finally settling in Florida. Irene worked hard to raise her family and she was rewarded with what was most precious to her... her grandchildren. She always managed to make their visits feel like a vacation. Endless food, fun and games, cooking and baking too. Her family quickly coined the phrase, “What happens at Gramma’s stays at Gramma’s”. And you never left Gramma’s house empty handed, even if you stopped by for only a second.
She was an avid reader, devouring books on practically a daily basis, especially murder mysteries. After retirement from Kmart and Comcast, She enjoyed her volunteer work and making lifelong friends at The Humane Society Thrift Store.
Irene wouldn’t want all this fuss made over her. But we would be doing this extraordinary woman a disservice by not memorializing her life in some small way. Wherever Irene’s energy has gone, we will sorely miss her metallic nail polish, her bold red hair color, her wardrobe full of coral, orange and yellow, her compulsive year-long shopping for Toys for Tots, her owl collection and last but not least, her perpetually filled coffee cup.
Love You Mom!
Love you Gramma!
We’ll miss you every day.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to The Humane Society in her name.
