Jack Skaggs, 61, passed away Friday, Feb. 22, 2013, in San Luis Obispo, where he had fought until the very end. At the time of his death, Jack was surrounded by his wife, Susan Bettencourt, and loving children Danielle (Skaggs) Copeland, Joe Skaggs and Amanda Skaggs. Jack was born to Donna Bettencourt and Jack Louis Skaggs Sr., in Tulare, Calif., where he eventually graduated from Tulare Union High School, Class of 1969. He later worked for San Luis Unified School District for over a decade. His heartwarming smile and one in a million personality left not only a mark on students, but teachers and staff alike. His love of plumbing was not to be overshadowed by his love of birds, particularly pigeons. Jack''s birds would consistently place in the top five in most races he entered through his San Luis Obispo chapter. He is and will always be remembered for his enormous heart and endearing kindness to all who knew him. Jack is also survived by his mother, Donna and AJ Wright; brother, Randy Skaggs; and sisters Donell Hoffman and Kim Wright; as well as eight grandchildren. A service will be held at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013, at the Reis Family Mortuary Chapel, 991 Nipomo in San Luis Obispo. Reis Family Mortuary 544-7400 San Luis Obispo
