I have been told that Skip had a massive stroke over a week ago and passed away  a couple of days ago.   I have not been able to verify any of this for I lost all of my phone numbers a year ago.

May we all remember the Yellow Rose of Texas car - and everything else Skip brought to us.  Condolences to you for your ex-partner, too.  R I P Skip - if he has indeed gone from this vale of tears.

Thanks to whomever sent me the contact info.  Talked to Joyce just now Skip had a massive stroke I think on Tues. before Thanksgiving, on life support for 3 weeks. He was not able to make it on his own.

There will be a Celebration of life on his birthday in April at the winery in Pahrump.
