Dear Fay, Mark and Joann, You are in our thoughts and prayers during this time of sorrow.  Skip was around me all through my younger years growing up in Parkesburg as Skip was my Dad's best friend until Dad passed at age 34, in 1966(Jerry Montgomery) and was loved and special to the whole Montgomery Family.  Skip had a sense of humor and was alot of fun to be around.  He was one of a kind.  Skip will never be forgotten.    May God give you His Help, His Strength, and His Hope through the days ahead.  I will treasure many, many Fond Memories of Skip.  Sad to hear of his passing, but in a better place now and will see him again.  

Our Love,

Doris and Barry Aberts

Spent a lot of time over the years shooting pool in your basement. Sometimes we raised a little help but you never seemed to mind. You will be missed. Say hi to mom for me. Thanks for the memories. Jeffro.

A huge void is left in my heart. I know my favorite Uncle Skip was met by my Dad and Buddy. May the Proudfoot boys, Chester, Bull, Oscar and Skip have a never ending Monopoly game. For those you left behind you will forever be in our hearts and loved. We are beside you Aunt Faye, Mark and Joanne although 5,000 miles away.

Aunt Fay and Mark,
I have so many fond memories of visiting with all of you in PA or in our home in VA. Uncle Skip always made us laugh, and the picture here is such a great reflection of that! Much love, Greta.

Aunt Fay, Cousins Mark & Joann, We are so sorry for your loss. As a Family we share many wonderful memories and lots of laughter playing cards, taking trips together, standing for us at our wedding and all of those Holidays and Sundays together at Mom & Dad's. We were so blessed to have had Skip in our lives for 88 years. We feel joyful knowing that he is united with his Mother, Father, our parents Josh & Louise, Uncle Bull, Uncle Chester, Aunt Evelyn and Uncle Oscar that he missed so much. We can only imagine their reunion. You shall always have our love and support!
