The Riverside Class of 1969 express our deepest sympathies to the Skillern Family. We all loved Vic and cherished all the memories and caring he has shown us over the years. His forever lovely smile and kind ways were always welcomed in our presence. His presence will be missed, but the memory of our Beloved Classmate will stay with us forever. I, personally, have lost a wonderful friend who showed me nothing but kindness and love over the 60 plus years we shared.
— Rest TROJAN, We Mourn & Rejoice Your Existence—
