“I am from Austin MN and went to all home baseball games. Talked to Moose a lot and he gave us kids a lot of advice. He would always give us baseballs so we could play our games in the parks of Austin. I have an official shirt with his printed signature along with all the LA Dodgers players when he played for Dodgers which was my favorite team. A man of strength and heart for the kids that loved baseball. RIP
“Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.
“As I am watching the ALL Star Game this evening, I started thinking about Moose. He and his family were our neighbors on BelAire Drive in Austin. So sorry to see he had passed. Denise (Jensen) Nelson. Mesa AZ
“I knew Moose from our days in Chicago where I played softball against him. I also knew him in NY city when my company (Colgate) sponsered the pregame show with Red Barber. Moose invited me into the locker room to meet Johnny Blanchard the 3rd catcher. Johnny autographed a National league baseball for my two sons. Moose was always a favorite Yankee of mine. I also played basketball with his uncle John Skowron at Forman High School in Chicago. Jack Blanchard
“Just saw this on a face book page. My dad Joseph C. Skowron had Moose come to St. Adalbert's Holy Name Mens Club, East St.Louis,IL many years ago, probably in the 50's. My dad wrote to him sometime in 2008 he was very proud of Moose. My deepest sympathy.
“I'm so sorry about the loss of Bill "Moose" Skowron. Years ago Moose had invited me and my husband to his restaurant so he could sign photos I have of him and my Dad at Yankee Stadium. I regret that I never made the trip and to meet him in person. I wish I knew why my Dad was at the stadium and standing next to Moose and Mantle. I never had the chance to ask my Dad.
My prayers go out to the Skowron family. May he R I P
“I am so proud and sad at the same time while reading all of these heartfelt emotional words about our father and husband--He was so special to so many people and left so many memories behind when he passed...He loved life and He loved people..thank-you for all of your blessings and prayers---The Skowron Family--
