A joy for all the family of recent years was gifting Skippy with lottery scratches for birthdays, holidays or just to see the smile on his face when he wasn’t feeling his best, Scratching away anticipating a big winner including the night before his passing, he was still scratching away one last time surrounded by smiles, tears and lots of love. He loved sharing a favorite song “Mother’s Mansion is Higher than Mine” and surrounded by family he sang his favorite verse one final time; “I’ve a mansion high prepared for me ‘twas built by hands divine But I know my mother’s mansion is higher than mine” “FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS” Eddie, Patty, Diana, Joanie and Tammy. Respecting their father’s request, there will not be a public memorial service. The family will be taking this time to grieve privately with a ceremony at Irwin Union Cemetery where he will be laid to rest beside his beloved Joan. If you would like to honor Skippy, a very proud Army Veteran; serving during Korea War the family suggests a contribution to the Korean War Veterans Association at https:/www.kwva.org Entrusted with the arrangements is the Ott Funeral Home Inc. 805 Pennsylvania Avenue Irwin.
