He was preceded in death by his parents, Edwin and Pearl Skelton; and his son, Frank Hayse Skelton Jr.
Survivors include his wife, Brenda Skelton; daughter, Crystal S. Robertson (Phillip); sister, Geneva Lankford (James); grandchildren, Danyelle R. Tolbert (Brett) and Cayla Robertson; and three great-grandchildren, Mack Robertson (lil bit), Kaiden Tolbert (little man) and Kasyn Wheat.
He graduated from Tuscaloosa County High and then joined the US Air Force. His family was his first and foremost priority. He always made sure they were taken care of. He was called to the church of God ministry 27 years ago. He loved and trusted the Lord with all his heart. He had a servant's heart; he would rather help others than himself. He led a godly life and led many to the Lord in his days here on earth and now he is reunited and rejoicing with many of them in heaven. He kept the faith and fought the good fight. He will be missed, always loved and never forgotten. We will see him again one day.
Pallbearers will be Phillip Robertson, Brett Tolbert, Joseph Boothe, Jonathan Boothe, Gary Golson, and Donald Hudson.
