Skyler was an amazing father, brother, son and husband. He always put his all into everything he did, and was always a shoulder to cry on for those he cared about. Skyler was very headstrong and determined, however, had the most sensitive side that only a few saw. Skyler enjoyed spending time with his daughter Emalaina, fishing, skateboarding, and playing video games. Skyler was always a joy to be around and was always trying to put a smile on everyone’s face.

His memory will live on through his wife, Kaley Rhodes; daughter, Emalaina Rhodes; grandparents, Jan Stierwalt and Deborah Walker; parents, Sara Rhodes, Mack Hayes and Tony Roberts; In-laws, Aera Walker, Brian Dormire and Don Harvey; and siblings: Samantha Nichols (Lanny), Sean Harvey, Seth Harvey (Alana), Austin Minor, Jonathan Roberts, Jeffery Roberts, Kaitlynn Roberts, Isaiah Roberts, Trinity Roberts, Victoria Roberts, Penelope Roberts, Sophia Roberts and Jennifer Purifoy; and also many cousins, nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Joshua Roberts, who passed away October 28, 2010.

I'm terribly sorry for the loss of such a beautiful young man. I've watched him grow .. up close & from afar. It didn't matter how much time had passed, he always had a smart comment, a joke.. something or other to make me laugh! Sooo many special memories.. even the picking on one another, running around the house, & etc. Always the jokester.. he will forever be missed! Please know I'm here if you guys need anything. Huge hugs, lots of love... my heart truly breaks for all whom had the honor of knowing Skylar... I'm honored to have been able to have seen him grow into a fine young man. Love to you all! My deepest condolences.
~ Sincerely,
Angie W.~
