not sure how many of you remember Skig - he also had another name he went by that involved something about being a scout dad (for the life of me I can't remember it)....

found out this morning that he has passed away after an illness...

We met Scott, one of his boys and his girlfriend Tanya when we raced in Michigan a few years back..... he was a good guy.... and very much helped out 'under the radar' many people - I know he helped my kids several times; not just as racers but fundraising for Scouts. A few years back he put $50 in my paypal and asked me to buy wreaths from our scouts for families that would appreciate having something they couldn't normally get....

I am so sad that I hadn't talked to him over the last few months....

:(

The world has lost a good man....

OMG, I'm so sorry to hear this. He was truly a good guy. He used to pop into RaceChat on a regular basis, but then it got very sporadic. Since I'm not on Facebook, I had no idea he was sick.

RIP, my friend.

He had another screen name that involved the word "Miller", him being a Rusty fan back in the day.

Some racefans gathered in RaceChat last night to watch the football game, and they got the great idea of turning the gathering into a kind of "Chatroom Wake" for Skig. It was announced on FB and one other message board, and I saw the announcement just after I got home last night. It was a nice respectful gathering, and we all agreed that Skig was a very good man, and he will be sorely missed.

RIP.

I saw they were going to do that....but I can't get chat to work on any computer I own

:(

They are doing a memorial at some point after the holidays; he requested to be cremated so they have time to make a decision....

Damn, I just found out through Facebook, holy shit. We went back and forth a lot with the Hawks and Wings. Too damn young. :-(

Thanks for posting that, Chrissy. It makes it feel more "real" to me, even though it breaks my heart all over again.

Crazy to here this. Saw him with Chrissy several years back at the Michigan Qtr Midget track.

My son still has the "Jasper Engine and Transmission" #77 car on his dresser. A gift from him and you guys here at Racing Stalkers.

Two years ago my wife and I bought a garage door from his place of employment. He took very good care of us.

My wife told me just hours before we heard "We need to talk to Scott about some doors"....we had no idea.

RIP Skig

RIP

I remember him, never really had much interaction. That's just way to young.

This was just a culmination of a year that saw my cousin, his wife and their newly adopted baby die in a fire; my mom pass from the wretched Alzheimers less than one week later; my beloved aunt having so much pain from a fragile spine; my Tommy still feeling sick and some days feels like it is getting worse with no concept as to why; my Princess going to see a doctor with symptoms of Lupus; several other people close to us passing or being diagnosed with cancer....

As I said in the other thread:

"Here's to the new year. May she be a damned sight better than the old one, and may we may we all be home before she's over."

Rest in eternity, Skig - your pain is gone and you are in a much better place.....

<3 <3 <3

God bless you all - you are always in my thoughts and prayers....
