SKIPPER.......... reminds me of

the man you laugh at because he made you feel good because of his simply ways

not a professional pundit but a common sense man ... who was street smart

he saw things from his realm as few do
a back/porch
a back/yard
a rocker
a six pack

loved his isolation/his country his life
but would tell you gave a beer a rocker and a view...

Skipper was representative of why I was in Nam....would give his life to make sure I got home and those in the Nam arena had the same as he did

I knew you only in passing on a public forum. I met you over 5 years ago. I knew of your service background and that you lived in Georgia. Your spontaneous sense of humor and your genuine personality will sorely be missed around the old Offbeat.

Godspeed my man - and thank you for your friendship.

I realize that I did not know Skipper as well as most of you do. He was one of my, "play the letter game," friends on the "Topix" forum. I have only talked to him twice through private messaging, but he seemed like a really nice guy. I am saddened to hear of this news.

I want to also say that my thoughts and prayers go out to all of his family and friends. I am sure he touched many lives.

It is always sad when someone passes, but I am sure he is standing in the beautiful light with all those he loved that has passed on before him. He is rejoicing in the love with the Almighty God.

This is a song that is frequently played at funerals, and I wanted to share it with you all. It is for the mourners, that have lost such a wonderful person like him.

I was sorry to just hear of Skip's passing this morning and although I rarely ever got around to posting to him, I knew him a long time.

We were friends in passing along the way on Topix for years and he seemed pretty cool on the few occasions we posted together.

May he rest in peace!

Theres always that certain one when trying to find your way in the world , who takes a minute and says hello..They stop just a second to make you feel as if you matter, and will part of their family... RW or Cyber.. that was Skipper..
He was a funny, gentle , genuine fella and as I said earlier, one of OB's greats.. I will miss your heart and humor Skip..thanks for welcoming me aboard our mothership

I think what I like most about Skipper was that he sort of brought all of us on Topix together, like an Offbeat Cyber Family <3

When I first came here he was very nice to me and welcomed me. We played the word games together here and on other boards.

He was a class act...

RIP Skipper,

You will be missed..:(
