Memories Timeline


  1. Skeeter, was one of a kind, and there will never be another like him. He was good and dear friend, who will be missed by all who ever knew and loved him. He could be as hard as granite, with a soft heart as big as the Colorado Mountains he loved so much. A true Colorado Mountain Man, who mentored me in the wonders of elk hunting. May you rest in peace, old friend, in the "Happy Hunting Grounds", and break trail for the those of us who will some day follow.

  2. Skeeter was a gentleman and a warm friend. He was a very good bridge player and had a delightful wit. He was thoughtful of others and always called friends on their birthdays. He was dedicated to his family and his community. We will miss his smile and his warmth of friendship. Rest in peace, dear friend.

  3. It was with great sadness that we heard of Skeeter's passing. Please accept our deepest condolences. He will always hold a treasured place in our hearts, especially when we think of Skeeter and Kyle at hunting camp. He will be missed.
