Skip was the oldest child and became the "man of the house" in 1935 at the age of 12 upon the death of his father. After graduating from Margaret Brent High School he entered the Army and served during World War II. He served with distinction in the war theaters of North Africa, Italy (Anzio), and Germany. One of the happiest days of his life was when he returned home to Leonardtown on December 21, 1945.On December 24, 1949 he married the love of his life Barbara Wathen. He was a federal employee and retired from the Solomon's Annex in 1979. He and several others commuted by boat from Seven Gables to Solomon's for thirty plus years. Ironically, he retired shortly after the opening of the Thomas Johnson Bridge negated the need for the boat commute.His retirement years were vibrant and busy until the effects of Parkinson's disease robbed him of his motor skills. He was an award winning gardener. He garnered numerous champion and first places at the County Fair. He was an accomplished amateur photographer before the era of point and click digital cameras. He spent many Sunday afternoons following NASCAR events. He loved bird watching and stocked bird feeders around the house for many years. Likewise, he became a noted squirrel fighter due to their fondness for bird seed. While not international travelers, he and Barbara were able to travel extensively within the United States and Canada. He loved their winter trips to Florida. He especially enjoyed spending Race Week at Daytona.Ultimately, family and sense of place were the most important components of his life. He loved Leonardtown. In his retirement years he and his friends held a Leonardtown coffee klatch at lunch time nearly every day. Family events and holidays were always the most important dates on the calendar. He truly believed the camaraderie and shared love of a holiday meal was far more important than any material possession. He was a devoted father, grandfather, and husband who believed in family first.Internment will be private. A memorial service will take place on Monday, July 23 at 11AM at St. Aloysius Catholic Church. The family will receive friends at the church from 10AM - 11AM. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations are made to St. Mary's Nursing Center Foundation, 21581 Peabody Street Leonardtown Md. 20650 or to Hospice House c/o Hospice of St Mary's.
