Skip, I am proud to have you for my cousin. Though we didn't spend a lot of time together I looked up to you! I always remember your smile. Even when I saw you for the last time, you smiled so big. Your smile would light up a room. You will be greatly missed. Love you!

Skip Marchesi, what do you say about a man that hasn't been said already, he had a heart of GOLD and the patients to deal with what ever life threw at him. I had rode with him several times in GWRRA Chapter A's rides knowing the smile on his face he was enjoying life's adventures. He will be missed by many and I will miss his FUN personality. God Bless you Skip, rest in peace.

Skip was my Uncle and even though I did not get to know him until I was eighteen, when we did start talking to each other he treated me as if he had know me my whole life. He was always smiling and always had a joke to tell. I wish I had spent more time with him and he will be missed. Marge I hope you are doing ok and know that Skip will always be with you and all of us as he was a very special kind of person.

"Sgt. Marchesi" was truly a wonderful man that not only mentored my husband and other troops, but both he and his wife Margi got Mike and I through some difficult times during the 220th's deployment in Iraq. Thank you for your service and thank you both for your words of encouragement.

Skipper: Reading the guest book a common theme emerges. A kind, gentle and caring man who was loved by so many. Not many people can leave this earth with a "thumbs up". I will always remember you and thanks for being my friend.

Skip, you were one of the kindest and most morally upstanding soldiers that I have had the pleasure to serve with. God's speed. My thoughts are with your wonderful family at this difficult time.

In the short time, I got to know Skip, he always had something good to say about everyone. Our hearts and love go out to Marge and her family.

Skippy it was an honor to get to know you over the last couple of years. You always had a smile and a kind word for everybody. It is always hard when the good guys have to leave early. Annie and I will miss you very much.
