Someone who said they were his relative of his from his hometown threads relayed a message on the Lpw Offbeat thread that Skipper passed; inferred it was due to some sort of health implications.

In the past few years, there's been some health scares surrounding him, I believe heart troubles; some type of surgery and occasionally Skipper would post a little bit about it on certain threads...

I don't know how his departure happened, or the specifics but it's sort of been inferred it has to do with his health.

I was thinking about you this week! When I was driving home, "She thinks my tractor's sexy" came on and I laughed thinking of all of your tales.

Read somewhere a couple of weeks or so back that a relative (grandchild?) has been playing his account in his honor.

Are you sure, Shady? It can't be the same Skipper we all knew and loved...

I remember reading a post somewhere where Skipper's Topix profile posted that it's in fact his grandkids passing on his legacy...if you believe it or not, its up to you :)

With no disrespect to the Skipper, for he was a graceful man.

I have found this one of the most interesting threads to date on Offbeat.

He was a real gentleman, reading 'old' threads is a good way to see history here.

Skipper was a great guy, it's such a shame people like Angus post infuriating spam. Rightfully so he received numerous jewelry objecting to his heinous post. Now it seems he and his socks worked like little beavers to change the count. Sad as it is I think Skipper would still laugh though. He was a peach. We miss him.
