    My love and condolences to Mary Lou, Tracy, Chad, and their families. We’ll all miss Uncle Skip a great deal, along with the fun and energy that he brought with him on every visit. I’ll always remember him as a strong, funny, kind, loving, and patient man that would listen to me drone on and on about whatever I wanted to talk about when I was a kid. He had a way of connecting with people that made them feel like they were the absolute center of his attention and interest at any given moment, and nobody ever felt left out the festivities when he was around. I’ll miss the music and the cards, the beer and the laughs, the jokes and the smiles. He lived a full life, had a wonderful family that he loved dearly, and leaves behind memories that are cherished by everyone that knew him. Rest In Peace, Uncle Skip.

    Sending my deepest love and condolences to Mary Lou, Tracy, and Chad. He will be greatly missed. Growing up I always looked forward to my energetic Uncle Skip coming to visit or getting to go to Fl to his beautiful homes. He was my favorite dance partner (last was Eddie Money concert) and gave me the best hugs. I will always remember our card games at grandma’s house and him always having something with an engine for us kids to get on. I appreciated his tough love talks and his laugh. May he be at peace and with his family again.

    Uncle Skip will be missed dearly- no one can bring the energy to a room like he did. His smile, hugs, and vivacity were unmatched. The days at nanny's all together were a great memory I'll always remember when I visit the house. I am thankful he has the crew waiting for him on the other side.

    My big brother always looking out for me - I have many fond memories growing up . He reminded me often that my mother used to put a million "petty coats" on me when I was little, and then he'd laugh. He had a distinct, infectious laugh for sure and a huge smile.
    I remember his love of vehicles, and countless hours of him cleaning, buffing, waxing etc when I was little. He helped me learn how to ice skate - flung me across the rink lol! He helped me learn to ride a bike, same technique, but it worked. The one thing I loved, and my own kids still talk about, is his love of dancing. He was an incredible dancer, and loved all kinds of music; from doing the twist, jitterbug, to disco - he owned the floor.
    Last we spoke, we talked about Fair Haven State Park and the great family reunions. I think now you'll be having one in Heaven. We had some great memories along the way.
    I remember when he brought Mary Lou to our house, and then was married before I knew it - he knew he was a lucky man and always told told me so- anytime we talked. He lived life to it's fullest, and for that I admire him. We had our moments, as all siblings do, but they never lasted long - no matter what, we loved each other.
    He was a loving, proud father to Chad and Tracy. He glowed when he spoke of them, and enjoyed each of them for their own accomplishments and traits. He loved their spouses, Katie and Scott, and always spoke highly of them.
    I wish there was more time, but god had other plans for you. I love you and will miss you. I feel a hole left in my heart, there is no one to ask now on what things used to be like so many years ago. I'm sure you're with Mom, Dad, Biff, Patti, and Dave (Kim) . You don't have to suffer anymore, and for that I'm glad.
    Rest in peace big brother, until we meet again.....
