Skip served his country in the Korean War at the tender age of 15 where he received a purple heart. He spent 30 years in Texas working as a carpenter and then retired as a maintenance engineer from Hampton Inn in 1995.

Skip will be missed deeply because of his love and warmth that he brought to his wife and daughter. He also has 2 nephews, Skylar Arbogast and Carmeron Riffle that he adored and loved.

He may have left our presence, but will never leave our hearts. "Yet the lord will command his loving kindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life." Psalm 42:8. We will miss you, with all our love, Judy and Angie.
