Did he really pass or is this another joke?
I wouldn't be posting here if it wasn't real. His daughter called a few of us personally. This is no joke.

Here is a link to the funeral home. The obituary is on their website as well as a guestbook for those who would like to sign it.

God's blessings Skip as you now breath the scent of heaven!

I too had the pleasure of meeting this Southern gentleman at the meet in Nashville and have never seen a more polite, kind, very intelligent, and respectful person anywhere. The persona he had here was one that somewhat hid the true man that he was.

Comfort and peace to the family.

Will miss his humor and light hearted banter to cool off some heated discussion at the right time.

My heart goes out to Skip's family, though, for they will dearly miss him.

God's peace be with you, Skip. You gave it a helluva fight, but now it's time to rest. We'll all miss you.

I just read about Skip's passing on facebook...
I am going to really miss his wit and funny "redneck" humor on the forum for sure...
On a public forum we may never meet a number of the people we grow close to....just through our hearts..
Skip was one of those kind of guys, I wish I had of had the chance to meet him in person...but I am so happy that I did get to know him on this forum.
He and I would swap emails once in awhile...
Bless you Skip... I know your going to seek out that sexy Jack Angel of yours and really take her for a ride in the SKY!!!... ... I can picture it now...
** ** and ((((((****HUGS***)))))) to you my friend,...I am gonna miss you....sadly....for real this time...

I remember the time we spent together at Mecca. I pulled the poster off the wall in the cafateria. It was a midnight blue sky, like his. I made sure he had it as a souvenir to take home with him. I will never forget the smile on his face.
I hope that his family takes solace in the fact that he had so many friends that thought the world of him. I am blessed to count myself among them.
RIP Skip
