I only new Skilly when we were teenagers full of vim and vigger but after watching his memorial video I do wish I could have spent time with him as he aged. I too have learned much with aging and like him dearly love my grandkids. I will never forget Skilly for his drive, friendship, and fun and it looks like he ended his life the same way he lived it. I can only hope I do the same. Mick

I have known Skilly and Tammy my whole life living in Monaca. He was one the nicest guys I ever have known. He was always friendly and willing to help anyone who needed it. He was so helpful and supportive to me and my family when my brother Mike passed away. He organized golf outings for me so I could raise money for his my brother's daughter's trust funds. I will never forget that. You will be missed. Thanks for being my friend. God give you Peace. Sincerely, Mark Ciccone.
So sorry to hear of Mike's passing. I had had him in my prayers daily. I will continue to pray for you and your family.

So sorry for your loss Tammy and my sincere condolences to your family. Mike was a great guy.
My deepest condolences to you Tammy and your whole family. Mike was a great guy and fun to be around as you know. I say that without having a seen Skilly in probably the last 40 years. He was knocked out (concussion) in the memorable game with Rochester. We brought the ambulance onto the field to take him away. As he regained some awareness, 2 Rochester players attempted to hit him again. We kept them away and he was taken away for medical care. I always knew he would have done the same for anyone on our team. The story you shared in the obituary of his commitment to family was not surprising. Rest from your fight Mike! Gods speed.
Mike was a great guy. I always thought of him as "Mike and Tammy". He will be greatly missed.
R.I.P. MIKE ...... Tam an family Sorry for the loss
R.I.P Mike You Will be missed.... Tammy Family very sorry for your Loss !!!!!
Mike Skiles - great athlete, great American. Most importantly, a great person. RIP Skilly.
So sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. He will be fondly remembered by all. I know it brings a smile to my face when I think of him.
Praying for the family, Michael will be missed.
I am sorry to hear about Mr. Skiles passing. I am not sure, but I think I met him a few times because his face looks familiar to me. My condolences go to his family, and may he R.I.P. with God in heaven.
Tammy and family, I am so sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. I have good memories of him as a classmate, as well as the love between you two. Every time I ran into him he always talked about his girls. Hope it helps to know he is in peace now, and the love and life you shared will always remain in your hearts. A friend wrote this quote to me and I want to pass on to you.
Grief never ends….
But it changes. It is a passage, not a place to stay
Grief is not a sign of weakness nor a lack of faith…
It is the price of love.
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.
Tammy and girls.
I'm so sorry for your loss.
Micheal and I had alot of great times together.
May he rest in peace
Tammy I am so sorry for your loss. Mike was always so good to Nathan and I both even though I was no longer related. Sending hugs to you and your family
It's it's not what you take when you leave this world behind you, it's what you leave behind you when you go.
RIP Skilly. It is a pleasure knowing you and celebrating the great legacy of family and friends you left behind. Someday we'll meet by the River and celebrate the good times.
Our deepest sympathy to Skilly’s entire family for the loss of a great person. I can still hear him saying all the time how much he loved “his girls!”. May your memories & love for him & each other help you all heal through this terrible time. All our love, Joe & Tracy DeFelice.
My heart goes out to all that knew and were graced by his presence. One of the finest ive ever known. May he rest in peace.
Tammy so sorry for your loss Mike was a good guy
Dear Tammy, Stephanie, and Samantha,
Sending you all much love, condolences. Mike was a wonderful person to get to know through the years. He loved his girls the most. Rest in peace Mike.
Tammy,I can't remember not knowing Mike ,Danny and Nancy,he was
one of the sweetest guys that ever came out of Monaca.May he rest in the arms of our lord and savior.
When I think about the past, I remember that it was always “Tammy and Mike”. It brings back memories of all the formals and proms and even Midget dances. I think of Mike as a good athlete, a fun loving guy., the swimming pool and basketball court. Always a Monaca Indian. Forever a member of the Class of ‘72. We will miss you, Mike. I know you will be watching over Tammy, your girls and granddaughters. And I’m willing to bet that you’ll be watching over all of us at the 50th reunion next year.
Rest In Peace, Skilly. You will be missed.
You have my deepest sincere sympathy Tammy. Mike was a good guy. I enjoyed playing football with him. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you and your family. God bless you
You were always the Best , I could always count on you to be there, even if it was a 3am call. Friends like I never new we could be. Going miss you. See you on the other side Mikey, God Bless you Mike and Tammy and your family
Tammy, Stephanie and Samantha. My heart goes out to you and your families. Mike was such a strong and funny man. I ran into him years ago and he couldn't stop talking about his two beautiful daughters. He loved you all so much and I have no dought his love for his beautiful granddaughters brought him so much joy. Please continue to keep his memory alive with all the amazing stories you have of him.
Tammy, Steph, Samantha and family, I have no words. I am so sad for all of you. I know what you are going thru now and what you will be going thru. It makes me so sad. Skilly and Tammy were such a part of my life years ago. We had so much fun watching our guys play flag... Celestes, Cellar Door..... what good time huh. Tony and Skilly called each other cuppala hinch...... inside joke..... they were both so fun to be around. My thought is of those two playing moorah (spelling) in heaven.... My deepest deepest sympathy to you all.
Love, Julie DiMatteo
