I first met Skeet when Eaton played against Peterboro in Little League. We went through school together at MECS and became good friends, with many great times, graduating in 1971. A few years later Skeet was one of the groomsmen in my wedding. I always enjoyed Skeet's happy demeanor and sense of humor. I will miss my friend. My sincerest condolences to Skeet's family.
