Skip was a devoted & loving father, brother and friend. For those who loved him & he loved back we got the best of Skip. He was out going and funny! I loved to be around my brother! He always had a way to make me smile. There was never a time when a hug from him made my day better. Skip cared for so many people and loved beyond words. It breaks my heart every day to know that he is not with his babys and fam now. A whole lot a people have a whole lot to say when the MAN aint around! Skip was a piece of our family & hearts and is gone from us over nothing. Every person has a past. But the past is the past for a reason. Disrespectful comments about Skip were expected but not tolerated. Until you walk in his shoes do not judge him and in turn disrespect his family, just because you could not confront him & say these ignorant things in life does not mean that you get the option to do so in his death. We love Skip more than anything and miss him everyday! Let him Rest!

Our police force does what it can but our judges continue to be worried more about money and how they look to other politicians instead of our criminal justice system...
You have no idea what happened years ago or what happened the night Skip passed! Maybe this tragedy could have been avoided but it was not. Maybe you should think before you comment about Skip and call him an idiot! Skip did his time and just to let you know did graduate & attend college.( I'm sure an idiot couldn't do that) Do not insult my brothers intelligence because of the way that he passed. That could have been you. They do have guns in Grove City too! Your opinions & idiotic thoughts are not needed and un-wanted! So please do not insult us on the computer any more . Come out here and say how you feel :)

Maybe it's karma for the two young men he shot and put in wheelchairs for the rest of their lives!
So it is Karma that killed Skip? So you have the right to be ignorant? Skip passed away and will forever be loved and missed by his kids, family and friends. Maybe you should find out the whole story before you started commenting on Skip's death.

'dude' who is to much of a coward to put your own name, which i think may be 'douche' and not 'dude' what kind of person are you. regardless of what you think, a man is gone and a family is lost, but you seem pretty ballsy to run your mouth online, something i'm sure you had the chance to do in person before skip was gone, but now you can take the balls outta your mouth and talk shit, whata p.o.s. you are. i know that comment was made almost a year ago, i wonder if Karma caught up with you, yet!!!

Thats real funny. The only one at that party with a gun was Skip. Yea he had sooo much to live for. How many more crimes would he have commited????? This happening probably saved another innocent victims life. He did his time, but he never learned from it. He got out and acted the same way. A good father would have had a job and supported his kids. A good father would have been home at 3am. He was 34 guys not 19. He should have been home. A good father would have done whatever it takes for his kids.
All you saying god forgives!!!! Read the Bible cover to cover because he is also very vengful.
So u think its real funny ha ha Tony chose his own actions that night and his friends. From what I understand 17 guns were confiscated from Tony's party that night. How odd it was never brought out in court. They threw beer bottles, sticks, and bricks basically anything they could fnd to throw at skip and his friends. so they left. One girl was caught on a bobwire fence and couldn't get away, so someone threw skip a gun and he shot it up in the air and told them to stay back, he got the girl loose and she ran. Tony shaw jump skip and tried to pull him down and couldn't, they wrestled over the gun and it went off stiking tony in the neck. It was never proven who shot the other guy. Had Tony shaw hadn't tried to be a hero no one would have been hurt. They didn't intrude the party they were nvited and even bought new clothes to go to this party. As far as Skip being a good father he was and as from what I heard about tony he already had a baby he never took care of and if thats the case why was he out when he had a baby to take care of that night. Skip brought the sunshine out for his kids every morning and everynight, his babies r still crying for him. Tony has no clue what he did to Skip, and his family that night and may he rot in hell for his actions. I have never heard on here how his dad beat the hell out of a man and ran him and his family out of town because they feared for thier lives many years ago. Like father, like son. so before u call judgement on 1 man look at the actions of the other.

I knew of Skip briefly back in the day from what i remember he was very well liked and popular. i dont know what he did or didnt do but i DO know that no one deserves to b shot in cold blood. i didnt grow up in the bottoms but i spent quite a bit of time there trolling the streets and for people to say thug and he deserved it and karma he was trouble blah blah all shit... i would like to see those people grow up there live the life that some of these kids grew up in or damn at least spend a day in their shoes... then talk their shit!!! i bet you wont be!! RIP Skip. i know he has a lot of friends and family that miss him everyday so have some respect for the dead.

How dare u call my son an itiot u have no clue what happened or who he was. My son did 8 yrs for shooting a guy who started shooting in a crownd of people. That would be Tony shaw my son went back to help a girl who got caught on a bob wired fence.I guess thats what happens when u try to save someones life. U haven't a clue what my son and my children went thr because of this. Take a look at ur own life before u start judging others. Just because my son was charged with other counts don't mean he did them. Look into the laws!!

It's sad to me that someone can always point out someone else's flaws or faults, but when it comes to working on thier self they have not one clue where to start..nor even try'n to take self-preservation on Becoming a better them, Ooo I get it, it's way easier to criticize someone else for that particular moment to make themselves feel good, but that feeling will not last cus at the end of the day YOU ARE STUCK with YOU!!
R.I.P.SKIP,SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE!!!

Yes I am dam proud of my son, who he was, and what he was. Just because someone is charged with something doesn't mean they did it. If sounds like your life must be very boring. To be able to write what you did you must be one heartless witch. My son had a lot of love and compassion for people.Apparently that is something you know nothing about, May God forgive your ignorance or is just your down right stubid. I guess if this was your son or daughter you may feel differently. A broken hearted MOM

Its not Karma..he will never suffer the way the man he shot to kill, has suffered. No man should take another mans life.
You want to bet on that? Very sad! Were you there? I doubt that! Ed Hilbert was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Tony shaw on the other hand is a different story. 17 guns were confinscated from the people he was with. He was trying to hurt some girls. My son was trying to protect them. The Shaw family ran the bars for years. They beat up a man so bad he took his family and left Cols. They just about beat the man to death. More than likely would've killed him the next time, they saw him. My son did 8 yrs for protecting girls which is what I taught, him to do. Now I wish I hadn't!No it's not right to kill anyone. However, don't judge what you don't know.It could've been your son next or someone else you know and love.

Sounds like your describing yourself its a shame you've never been through a loss in life. Maybe you would know how it feels and wouldn't be so quick to judge. He has never been a snitch or a rat just stood up for what he felt was right. Sad, but someday maybe it will be one of your own. Than you will have someone laughing in your face.
