Robert E. Skarda
A Good Buddy,
Many of our classes lined us up alphabetically, so letters S & V were often not far apart. He was an easy going, good friend in school and church.

"Buddy" and I lived across the street from each other. Lots of childhood memories from as far back as kindergarten.. He was indeed a very sweet guy.
Donald (Don) R. Rilea
Buddy was truly a great friend from kindergarten, all the way through high school. He was a quiet person and always thought before he did speak. We worked together on many projects, including reviewing memorizing his catechism verses and vows. He was a deep, caring individual, and probably the best listener of all my close friends. I count it a great privilege to have known him growing up!!
