I worked with Michael Skinner at CCC. I am sorry to hear of his passing. He was a compassionate leader, who radiated a sense of calm no matter the chaos around him. When he retired from CCC, he talked about spending time with his kids and grand kids. His influence is still present, and he will be missed.

I have lost my best friend. Mike and I have known each other for 35 years , we played golf at least once a week and sometimes more. With Mike you always knew where you stood and you could depend on him for great advice. I am so grateful that he came down to South Caroline and spent a few days with me and we got to play a couple of rounds of golf before he was taken from us. He was a great friend, Husband and father. I'm sad that his grand daughters will grow up without him, because he loved them so very much. As with all that knew him he will always be in my heart.

I am really thankful for having known Mike when we worked together at CCC. Even though he was based in Illinois and I am in California, he made an effort to come out every four to six weeks to spend time with my team and me, getting to know each of us, learning about our projects, and giving us the opportunity to be integral members of the numerous projects teams throughout the organization. He was probably the best manager I have ever had. I consider him a true leader, mentor, and friend. Thank you, Mike! God Bless You! Always.

I am very saddened to hear of Mike's passing. I worked with Mike at CCC from 2005 until he retired. He was a good mentor, but above that he was a good person. I remember the day to day interactions we had and he was always available to help guide through any challenges. The quarterly meetings he held with the entire department were always fun and often times included "Ice Cream Social", which was a big hit. I remember speaking with him about his deck refinish project. We shared how much we both disliked doing that over and over again every year until he used a sand based product that reduce the redundancy.
I will truly miss Mike.
