Virgil was a graduate of the Waconia High School. Virgil was united in marriage with Sonja “Sunny” Blakstvedt on August 17, 1957 at St. Boniface Catholic Church in St. Bonifacius. Virgil began his employment with the Minnesota State Highway Department, followed by working construction, as a truck driver delivering block for Johnson Bigler and later as a salesperson for Concrete Cutting and Coring. Virg’s greatest joy was his wife and family who he loved spending time with. He was passionate about the game of baseball and wasn’t afraid to give the umpire an “earful.” Virg was a member of the St. Boni Saints Amateur Baseball 3 time State Championship team in 1961, 1964 and 1965. He started the Babe Ruth Baseball program for St. Boni and coached numerous baseball and softball teams.

He was a member of the St. Boni Lions Club, loved camping and was a member of the Wright Way Campers. Virg was also a member of the Czech Area Concertina Club. He was an awesome woodworker and storyteller, and he enjoyed attending his kids and grandkids activities, hunting, fishing, having fish frys with family and friends, playing Sheepshead, winters in Arizona, making his famous sausage and delicious turtle soup and so much more. His baseball legacy will live on for generations.
