Outside of work, Skip was an active member of the former Pottstown Moose Lodge #369, where he bartended for many years, served on the board, and enjoyed playing pool and shuffleboard. Skip was a professional bowler for over 40 years, and participated in many bowling leagues where he successfully bowled many 300 games! He and his brother, Charlie, enjoyed going fishing and even took annual trips to the Great Lakes, and spent many summers fishing in the Delaware Bay. Most importantly, Skip was an amazing dad and Poppop who will be deeply missed.
