I am sorry I missed the service. I intended to attend however after attending the Prelims of the Capital City Swim League High
School Championships Nov. 2,2019 I discovered my 92 year old mother had taken ill so I had to change my plans. I so appreciated Skip assisting as the faculty representative at high school swim meets years ago after beginning the West Feliciana
High School Swim Team. Skip even accompanied the team and me to the LHSAA State High School Swimming Championships in New Orleans in 1997 and was present as our boys were runner ups to the champions at that meet. It was exciting accepting the the trophy for West Feliciana at the meet! Thank You Skip, We could not have done it without you! Thanks for those memories and for your gracious assistance.
Sincerely,
Dianne B. Peabody
West Feliciana Swim Coach

PS I am from Metairie too and recall Skip and others on the Panthers football team at the old Metairie Playground. My husband graduated with Skip from E.J. High School where they were the first E.J. High School Wrestling State Champions.

My life long friend, I will miss you with all my heart. You touched the lives of so many children and adults as a teacher and a coach. You had a productive life, you will always be remembered as a man of humor.
May you Rest in Peace.
