As a graduate of Putnam City West High School, he felt compelled to serve and protect others as a member of the US Postal Service, a corrections officer at Franklin County Sheriff’s Office and the US Army. He made us all very proud.

There was always room in Skeyler’s heart for his numerous cousins including Ethan, KayLynn, Jace, Jackson, Jeter, Braylon, Raelynn, Karson, Jolene, Maximus, Olivia, and Tre.
It was easy to love Skeyler because of his sincere and loving attitude towards others. We will never forget his kind soul and wonderful hugs.
