Woonsocket

Victor Fuhrman, 94, of Woonsocket, formerly of Emery, passed away June 3, 2018, at Prairie View Healthcare Community in Woonsocket.

His Mass of Christian Burial will be on Thursday, June 7, at 10:30 a.m. at Holy Trinity Catholic Parish, with Military Honors by Huron Veteran’s Council. Burial will be in St. Mary of Mercy Calvary Cemetery in Alexandria.

Victor Andrew Fuhrman was born on Sept. 23, 1923, to Joseph and Amelia (Loos) Fuhrman in Parkston.

He entered the United States Army in 1945, served in the Asiatic-Pacific Theatre, and was honorably discharged.  

Victor married Marie Kane in Platte on April 19, 1949. They lived on the family farm west of Parkston until March 1959, when they moved to a farm south of Alexandria and lived there until February 1981. They then moved to a farm closer to Emery.

Victor cared for Marie for many years before she passed away in 2007. He then moved to Huron to be closer to family. He entered Prairie View Healthcare Community in December 2017.

Victor was a member of Holy Trinity Catholic Church and the American Legion. He was able to visit Washington, D.C., on the Honor Flight to see the World War II Memorial.

After retirement from farming, Victor began to create farm machinery out of cardboard, earning him a front-page story in the local paper. Many friends and family members have received his creative gifts.

Victor is survived by his son, David (Diane) Fuhrman, of Huron; two grandsons; five great-grandchildren; and son-in-law, Dale Stern; as well as many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Marie; daughter, Marlys Stern in 2002; his siblings, Francis, Katherine (Andy), Theresa (Leonard), Helen (Paul), and Josephine (Joe).
