Obituary for Claude Bert Victory, Jr.



Claude Bert Victory, Jr. was a former U.S. Marine, retired Los Angeles County Probation Officer, published author, poet, evangelist, and cross-cultural missionary. He was best known for his world travels, prison evangelistic outreach, and missionary work in South Africa, Ghana, Haiti, Peru, and China. Victory was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and grew up in the small town of North Richmond, California. He was the son of Hattie P. Rayon, a beautician, and Claude B. Victory Sr., a traveling musician. Somehow Victory knew that deep down within him, there was a greater purpose to search for and a greater world to explore. He was a star baseball player in the American Legion League and attained his AA degree from Contra Costa College. In 1964 he joined the U.S. Marine Corps, obtaining rank of E-4 Corporal. During the spring of 1967, he permanently moved to Los Angeles and completed a Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice from California State University Los Angeles in 1971.

Victory was employed by the Los Angeles County Probation Department in May 1972 and his career spanned over 32 years. Also, in 1972, he joined a prison outreach ministry through his church home and would travel to numerous domestic prisons for the next 25 years. He was invited to the Fiji Islands for a two week short-term mission trip in 1984, and at that time, he developed a keen interest in cross-cultural ministry. Throughout the 90s, he travelled to various countries; Mexico, South Africa, Haiti, Ghana, West Africa, Peru, among others; planting churches, street witnessing, developing discipleship seminars, and participating in volunteer work in orphanages and river churches.

Victory is a published author of 3 titles: Behind These Walls: Spiritual Treasures, God’s Bread and Cheese Man, and Three Strikes and You Are Not Out (in honor of his late mother). Victory’s final legacy was witnessing and finally leading a devout Buddhist monk, through friendship and patience, to Jesus Christ after 8 long years.

Victory is survived by his wife Ming Xia Yu, his 3 children: Corey Tyrone Victory, J. Ross Victory, Jessica Elizabeth Victory, and 2 grandchildren: Kelly Alexandria Victory and Micah Christen Victory, son of the late Jason Paul Victory. He is also survived by several extended family members and close friends.
