Sky, you will be remembered and missed my old friend as you were an original.
You lived across the street and we had fun, fights and adventures as children growing up on Bay Vista. Ruth, your mom, was so nice...Mrs. Jones to us! My deepest condolences to your brother Dan, his wife and all the family.

I was so saddened to hear of his passing. Have been friends with Schuyler for almost 40 years and have many funny and fond memories of him. I'm glad I got to see him a couple of times in the last few months. He was his own unique person and usually once you met him you never forgot him. He was a South Tampa original and I will miss him. Condolences to his family and those who loved him. Luv you Sky. R.I.P. my friend.
