Skip was born on November 7, 1933, in Brady. He was a life-long member of the Church of Christ. Skip graduated from Texas A & M, received his master’s degree from Sam Houston State and was just a few hours short of his PHD. He worked for over 30 years with the Houston Independent School District as a teacher, an ROTC instructor and as an administrator. He served his country in the U. S. Army.
After retiring, Skip moved back to Katemcy where he helped his mom and dad with the family ranch. He loved the outdoors; hunting, fishing and just watching the deer and turkeys. Skip was a member of the Texas A&M Association of Former Students, the Masonic Lodge and the NRA. His great love, however, was for the Lord.
