Benny J. Skidmore, age 76, passed away on Saturday, July 25, 2020 in San Antonio. Benny was highly active in the Boy Scouts in his youth. He had a lifelong interest in Native American, U.S. Civil War, and World War history. A true fan of classic western movies, he was especially fond of John Wayne. Elvis was his favorite singer, and Benny was quite the dancer. Benny retired from San Antonio Water System in 2010. He was preceded in death by his wife, Lou Ella; and his parents. Benny is survived by his daughter, Kimberly Frye and her husband, David; sister, Priscilla Kincaid and her husband, Roger; and brother, Wes Skidmore.

For 15 years Ben raised me-he made sure I was taken care of-he also attended many of my sporting events as well as my band outings- he will be missed.

As Scoutmaster of Troop 202, we all called him Smiley for obvious reasons. He shared his joy and knowledge of scouting with us and we were lucky to have him. I was also fortunate enough to have him as a step-father and I'm the better for it. My condolences to the family, Bill and D'Ann Mabry
