He was a licensed Maryland Realtor who served as chairman of the Equal Opportunity Committee for the Coastal Association of Realtors and then chairman of the same for the Maryland Association of Realtors. He initiated and enforced programs to further promote equality at all levels serving on a committee for five years. Retiring from real estate, he reestablished his residential custom painting business that he loved and displayed superb craftsmanship leaving his skill very much in demand.
He was a dedicated fisherman who competed in and won many small boat tournaments. He loved the bay and the ocean and most of all just loved nature.
He loved gardening and had taken growing vegetables for his family very seriously. He was serious about all his endeavors including the battle for survival. He gallantly took nutrition and hope for the future as his dedication to live but God had other plans.
A service will be held at St. Luke’s Catholic Church on Dec. 30, 2009 at 11 a.m. for visiting and noon for mass. The family is hoping all whose life was touched by Skip will plan to attend.
