Skip was the kind of person that was enthusiastic about community service projects and providing assistance to other people in any manner that he could. If you gave him a call, he would show up whenever you required his assistance. He took pleasure in being active and participating in a number of different sports. He had a profound affection for his children and wife. He was the most amazing person anyone could have asked for in a father, husband, son, or brother. Above all things, he had a tremendous love for Jesus Christ, his Redeemer, and his deepest wish was that everyone would become acquainted with him.
He wished that everyone would get to know him.
