Virgil was a proud Korean War Veteran of the Army, who was awarded a Bronze Star. He proudly started his own family business, Brolite Products, and worked alongside his family up until his final days. He was an avid hockey player, coach and fan, and also enjoyed playing golf. The most important thing in Virgil’s life was his family. He loved his wife, and children, but especially enjoyed being a “papa”.
