    Hugs and prayers. Skip always made me laugh and my mom was so fond of him through the years. They would tease each other to the point of one or the other getting “testy” but then they would laugh it off until next time.

    My condolences to the entire Sacca family. Skip was a true pillar of our Village and had a profound impact on everything he was part off. Remembering when he was the Chief of the fire department he made us kids an ice skating rink in the park. He was what defined “It takes a Village to raise children”. He was always there to guide us and and led by example of what it was like to be respectful. Again my family’s condolences to the entire Sacca family. Shane Crockett
