I worked in the HR dept. at ETM back in the 90's and remember Harley (Skip) very well. He was always dependable and an extremely hard worker, but even more so just an overall great/kind person! I'm certain his presence will be greatly missed. May the cherished memories help heal the heavy hearts felt by this loss. My deepest sympathies to all the family.

My brothers and sisters grew up with Skip and his brothers and sister. We were like family. When we were little, we played in the creek together in the summer. Went sliding together in the winter. When Skip started driving, if you seen a blur go by, that was Skip. That boy wrecked more of his mom's cars than I could count on both hands. When you grow older, you tend to lose touch with childhood friends. It had been many years since I seen Skip, but I'll always have great memories of him. He was funny and he made me laugh. Always. Rest easy Skip, I'll see you on the other side.
