Age 79, of Pine River, Minnesota passed away peacefully with his family by his side on September 27, 2018. He was a humble, peaceful man who enjoyed the simple things in life.

After his honorable discharge he returned home to Robbinsdale and worked for General Mills Defense Plan developing the first Guidance Missile Fins. Skip later served as a Reserve Deputy for Navarro County, Texas. He moved to Northern Minnesota and worked as an electrician until his retirement. In his retirement he stayed busy working around his house and lending a hand to anyone who needed it. He was greatly loved by many and will be missed by all.
