Skibo was to me and probably many, many other was more know by his nickname than his full name. We first met at West Fraser Sawmill in Riegelwood and soon discovered that he and my wife, Gloria, were related. He was easy to relate to because he knew about as many people in my hometown of Whiteville as I did. Of all the experiences we shared none was more memorable than the fishing outing he had with my son Aaron and me. After we had caught more than a five gallon bucket of catfish, he gently reminded us in that baritone voice of his "Ugh ugh you know you have to  pay for these, right?" We shut it down and haven't gone fishing since.. Rest in peace my brother. We'll see ;you in heaven. We're praying for you family. May God bless and keep you.
