Michael J. Skillman passed away on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at his home in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee.
He was born in Austin, Texas and was a fifth generation Texan. He graduated from Tom Clark High School in San Antonio, Texas. While attending San Antonio Community College and working part time for a travel agency he was offered the opportunity to work full time in the travel industry. Michael traveled the United States as well as many other countries. His love for travel was evident by the many places he lived. However, upon arriving in Tennessee, more specifically Mt. Juliet, he knew this community was for him. The last nineteen years Michael served as a Customer Service Agent for Southwest Airlines.
Michael was preceded in death by his father Donald J. Skillman and his grandparents Hugh Littleton Conn and Nora Neal Conn.
He is survived by his mother Emily Conn Skillman, his sister Stacie Skillman Banack and husband Trey Banack. His extended family includes numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, many friends and his loyal four legged companion Brodie.
We will miss Michael's laughter, kindness, and fabulous sense of humor. We are proud of the courage Michael displayed following cancer surgery as well as the battles he fought these last few years.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
