I had the honor of being Skip's photog for the last four years of the WCCO Washington Bureau. There was no better reporter than Skip to share the foxhole of broadcast journalism - not only did he understand the medium, the story and the politics, he was also always willing to carry the tripod and the light case. Together we dragged a ridiculous amount of gear through the halls of Congress, down to the White House and into every federal agency. The stories ranged from the common to the complex but on big news events like Iran-Contra and the fall of Iron Curtain, he shone. His outstanding reporting and writing made the confusing clear to the folks back in the Midwest - there was nobody better at putting words and pictures together.

Even though he was my boss, he always treated me as a colleague and a collaborator. Behind the face of a serious and focused correspondent was a whole lot of compassion, heart and humor. Those of us in both Minneapolis and in Washington who worked with him were very lucky – we had the privilege of standing shoulder to shoulder with one of the best of our business.

Anne and I send our deepest sympathies to Bev and the family. Please know that Skip's life will be remembered and celebrated by many for years to come.

To Skip's Family, My condolences and want you to know that I will miss him like a family member, he inspired me to go into Radio/News reporting and since I was in the 8th grade including Skip all said I sounded like his doppelganger on the air. This saddens me, I lost my Icon and friend when he worked at WCCO, That is where I 1st met him and we both laughed that the 2 of us were like twins on the air and I patterned my reporting after his after college. It is a great loss to the Journalism field of a Man who stood tall and helped others when he had his segment of Action News here in Minneapolis/St.Paul. He was my Hero and always presented the news the way Walter Cronkite would have in the darkest hours of any story and he did it caring and with Humility. Thank you Skip for being my friend.

From Action News to Wash D.C. Skip was an original and a great mentor to this cub reporter in the early 70's at WCCO TV. My condolences to all.
