Skip I am so blessed to have met you. I will never forget the good times we shared with Lynn and Friends on that special cruise. I called you both my bookends. May you Rest In Peace now. I know your going to be hanging around from now on in spirit. We will all be together again. But for now rest up and feel the joy in the presence of kingdom with peace and tranquility. Amen
Skip has been a great friend. Welcomed me into the JROTC family in our teens and always had my back. It was a blessing to know him.
Skip was an amazing , devoted husband to my cousin, Lynn, and father to his girls. He was a gracious and generous man, who seemed to feel comfortable in any situation or with whomever he found himself in the company of. He was immensely likeable, easygoing and happy man. You will be greatly missed, Skip!
