Not sure what to say?

Dearest Nancy,

It is 2017 and I decided to listen to some Earth, Wind and Fire-which of course, brought you and Skip to my mind. So, looking up Skip's name, I came across his obituary. Thank God we have been taught the accuracy of Jesus Christ coming back-and we will see Skip again. The adversary won this battle, however, we will win the War.

Please accept my condolences, my love and heart towards you and your children. Not only Skip was wonderful, you also. I...

1964, before we were the Galaxies. Skip was by far the most talented.

The music of Tower of Power is part of my human fabric growing up in Richmond, Ca. My brothers and then mother would play TOP albums and I have fond memories of that time and listening ignites my memories. Ah, gone are the joyful days...

Remembering Skip. My memories of you, are that you always had a smile. You were truly a family man. I reckon the funniest thing was looking for a garment bag in Trenton, NJ. With Ken McCall.


I knew Skip 6th grade. I was a senior at Canyon High School in Castro Valley, Ca while he was junior. I was playing music all over the Bay Area. We really didn't get to know each other very well. But the last time talked was at Daugherty's Department Store in Castro Valley, Ca in 1971. I had been in service when was really taking off in music and was surprised how far had gone when I came back from the service in 1970. My prayers are with his family .

Rick, I am deeply sorry to learn that your brother, Skip, had passed. I send to you and your family my deepest condolences. Please find peace knowing that your brother is in the comfort of God's loving arms, and lives in your heart forever. Nothing can take that away. Most of all, know that so many people, as demonstrated in these messages, have you and your family in their hearts and offer their loving comfort. Your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I only knew Skip from Way productions with the Way Ministry. I always loved hearing him play sax. He had such a unique sound and energy. He is my brother in Christ and awaiting the return is what he is doing.

I've known Skip through TOP since around a founding member of TOP he will be sadly missed for all his kindness. My heart goes out to his family. As a fellow musician and friend... thanks for all the memories. ......Doc Woodard Nashville, Tn
