I just learned of Skip's passing when I did a google search for him. I was remembering something he had said once and I decided to look him up. Needless to say I was shocked to find the obituary. I reopened the guest book because I needed to say thank you to Skip. Skip - you terrified me for the longest time - but you also taught me more than any other human being has ever taught me. I teach theatre now at Long Trail in Dorset and every class, every rehearsal sees your techniques, hears your words. "Don't stand in the ex lax position" is a favorite with my kids. :) I know how often you said the world is full of hacks and boy did I learn that after graduating! You taught me everything about the theatre, but also how to be a disciplined professional. No one has made a greater impact on my person. I carry the professionalism you taught me with me wherever I go. We worked together, we battled, I cried, I grew. Just the other day I was telling a student I wish I had the courage in college I do now. I made a directing choice in Riders to the Sea and the class disagreed with it. I gave in. I have always regretted that because I know my choice was right and you taught me to fight for what is right. I just wanted you to know that. I wanted to thank you for the smiles and tears, the joy and fears - and for stirring the passion within me. From Follies to The Crucible it was an incredible ride and truly the best time of my life. Thank you.

Louenna I'm so sorry hear of Skip's passing. I will never forget your hospitality and the kindness both you and Skip showed me when I stayed in your home in 1967. Lenore and I had just graduated from high school in San Antonio. We all went to Expo 67 and it was the time of my 18 year old life! I had never been so far from home and was a little nervous and so excited about this big adventure in my life. Skip realized that and made me feel so comfortable. I was interested in Theater and Dance but wasn't sure which or both. In talking about it Skip said "follow your heart". I did just that and for the next almost 20 years had a great Dance career. Thank you Skip....I followed my heart.

Skip was my brother-in-law and a very large part of my childhood. He and Louenna introduced me to the Maine Masque Children's Theatre and gave me wonderful childhood memories. Skip taught me how to swim in Bangor Lake and many other things. He was a very special person who will be greatly missed.
