I remember Skip from high school days and also as an athlete. Some people make an indelible impression even though you haven't seen them for decades.  He was easy going, hardly ever ruffled, and comfortable to be around. Throughout life, it sounds like people enjoyed and benefited from his presence. Well done!

You can't picture Skip without a smile.  Always friendly.  In our Air Force days long ago we just happened to run into Skip at the St. Louis airport and had a short but friendly talk.  Then after we returned to live in Moline our daughter was in the same classroom in school before Skip and family moved to East Moline.  Nice guy.
