My sincerest condolences to Skips family, friends, and loved ones. I always enjoyed the deep-sea fishing trips we took on Skip’s boat which he loved. His generosity and enthusiasm was unsurpassed when it came to fishing. Officer Hodgekis , many others and myself will never forget Skip and the hi-jinks that occurred on a regular basis on our trips. God Bless you Skip and your Family. Sincerely, Jay Lavorne
