Skip was a longtime super friend of my dad Chief Halftown. They both worked for Brunswick and had a great comradery in their company family. So much so that his daughter Cheryl( Cheri) and I hung out together thru the Brunswick years- California and New Jersey. Our families are forever linked by their proffesional and mutual love of bowling and family life.
Rest In Peace Skip..bowl a few games with my dad and brother in heaven.
