Vilas C. Masterson, 79, of Lincoln


LINCOLN — Vilas C. Masterson, 79, passed away Sunday, Jan. 29, 2023, at his home in Lincoln. He was born on Aug. 9, 1943, in Lincoln, the son of Clifford and Delia (Lathrop) Masterson.

Vilas married his loving wife, Walterine, and they settled down in Lincoln, where they built and raised their family. He worked in the construction industry for many years. He loved doing woodworking projects, as well as fishing and camping trips. He also loved driving his dog, Peanut, around on the golf cart while doing yard work. Vilas loved making his homestead a home for his family and their hobbies — one of which was horses, that led them to many barrel races and rodeos. He was always willing to help anyone in need, in any way he could.

Vilas is survived by his wife of 52 years, Walterine Masterson; sister; Thelma and husband Donald Grimes; children Shane (Christa) Masterson, Adam Masterson, April Masterson, and Alex; and grandchildren Jacob (Sarah) Masterson, Griffin, Selah, and Mary Masterson.

Vilas is predeceased by his parents, Clifford and Delia Masterson, sister Patricia, and brother-in-law Howard Grimes

Visiting hours will be held on Sunday, Feb. 5, from 2 to 3 p.m. with a service following at 3 p.m. at Lincoln United Church. Interment will be at Maple Cemetery in Lincoln in the spring. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to Bristol Ambulance Services.
