  • “Skipper” was an icon in the MHS class of ’59. He stayed true to the character that he was and we, speaking for many of his classmates, will keep him young forever in our memory.

    Hard to forget that big round blond head with those glasses. He taught me how to buy transmissions for my ’49 Ford in the junk yard and then replace my routinely ruined one in my garage in less than 30 minutes. A memorable guy. So long Skip.

  • I remember Skip fondly and clearly. He always had a great love of cars and boats. A true wheel and keel man. Skip will be missed greatly by myself and many others.

  • I will always remember Skip’s big smile and warm hello when I saw him at my 50 reunion. We would always talk cars. I’m sure he’ll find a fast cloud to restore up there. I will miss him.

  • We never realize how connected we are until we lose one of our class members.Knowing Skip since grammer school,his passing is feeling the lose of a family member.Always easy going and with a smile.

  • Pete and I knew Skip in high school and did not see him again until our 50 reunion. Skip was the same happy guy we knew 50 years before with that wonderful smile. We have some happy memories of the time we had with him that night. He and Pete were still talking cars…

    Skip always made me smile. Now that he is gone, I hope that he knew how much we valued him.

    Skip…You will be truly missed by many. As like the other comments, I haven’t seen Skip for years but saw him at our 50th reunion. We had much to catch up on and I so enjoyed that I had the chance to see and talk with him before he left us.

    Skipper and I have been friends since we were 5 years old. Not only did we go to school together, we also attended the same church, St. Thomas’s. We lived down the street from each other, and enjoyed riding our bikes making believe we were cowboys and Indians. He had a wonderful train set like I’ve never seen before. As we got older, we went our separate ways, but always managed to bump into each other now and again. My children had such fun riding bikes with him, he was still a kid at heart. He always had that contagious smile with something clever to say. Recently there was a get together to “celebrate Skipper’s life”, and I over heard quite a few people say, “He should have been in movies, he was so handsome”. We will all miss him……..
