Victor G. “Vic” Musgrove, Sr.

Age 51, of Stanton Heights, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, August 26, 2023. Fiancé of Nakia Walls; son of Hazel Musgrove and the late Gregory Joseph; father of Victor G. “VJ” Musgrove, Jr.; brother of Joy (Joseph) Barley and brother-in-law of Marvin Barley, Troy (Greg) Joseph, and the late Tara Joseph. He is also survived by his adored father figure, Willie Williams; best friend/brother, Emmett "Sonny" Wilson; best friend/sister, Shawny Wilson; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

He graduated from Penn Hills High School in 1990 and continued his education at California (Pa.) University, where he was a linebacker on the football team.

Vic had many professions throughout his life, and one of his most gratifying accomplishments was his barbershop, VIP Styles, located in downtown Pittsburgh. VIP Styles opened July 1, 2004, and has been a staple for the Black community ever since. His heart always led him to give back by offering free haircuts and hosting book bag drives for those in need. His charitable contributions, business savvy, and kind heart led him to receive the Men of Excellence Award in 2018.

He will be remembered for all the kindness and compassion he shared with his friends, family, and the community. He truly loved each of them- and if you knew him, you knew it. Vic will be forever missed.
