When Skip was young, he enjoyed playing softball. Later in life, golf became his go to sport. He had a passion for muscle cars and listening to an engine growl. He loved rooting for the Green Bay Packers and the Wisconsin Badgers, but only from a far. He was convinced if he watched, they would lose.
In January 2004, Skip met the love of his life, Teresa, on an arranged blind date and it was love at first sight. They were married in January 2005. The two of them went on many adventures traveling to the UK and Italy and cruising the Caribbean every few years.
Skip was always smiling and cracking jokes. His hobbies included putting together models of military boats and aircraft, cooking for the family, and researching for his next dream car. He spent a lot of time in the backyard with AC/DC blaring through the speakers. Skip was always willing to help anyone that needed it.
