March 2, 1940 - February 14, 2022
Michael Jude Skeldon passed away February 14th, 2022 at the age of 81 with his wife, daughters, and friends by his side. In 1980, Michael returned to live in his favorite city of San Antonio, Texas, where he had spent his childhood and graduated from Central Catholic High School. After retiring from Friedrich A/C in 2002, he immensely enjoyed showing off his city to visiting family and often attended CCHS football games. In the hot San Antonio summers, he’d typically visit his paternal family homes in Ohio to enjoy time with his son, daughters, granddaughters, and great grandchildren. He also honored many San Antonio nieces and nephews at special events in their lives. When not attending family functions, he greatly enjoyed socializing with his neighbors. Michael is preceded in death by his parents, Col. John R. Skeldon, USAF Retired, and Elsie Schilo Skeldon, along with his siblings, John R. Skeldon, Jr., Delana Therese Breece, Laura Ann Skeldon, and his granddaughter, Mandy Wickard. He is survived by his loving wife Donna Gannon-Skeldon, his brother, Timothy (Sherry) Skeldon; sister, Helen Skeldon; children, Shawn (Sandy) Skeldon, Jeanne Skeldon (Scott Wickard), and Nikki Skeldon (David James); granddaughters, Megan, Celia, Erika, Alyssa, Zoe, and Karlee; nine great grandchildren, brother in law Kevin (Connie) Gannon and sister in law Julie McAllister. Family and friends will always cherish and miss Michael sitting in the garage, drinking beer, waving at the neighbors, and feeding corn to the mourning doves in his driveway. The entire family thanks all friends and neighbors for the love and care they exuded during his life and his illness, especially Clyde and Jaynell Toston. As you leave today, we invite you to consider this thought found online recently: We can’t always choose the music life plays for us, But, we can choose how we dance to it. Visitatation will be from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm Wednesday, March 16, 2022 at Mission Park Funeral Chapels North followed by a graveside service at 1:00 pm at Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery. No procession, everyone to meet at the cemetery in Shelter #4. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to St. Jude Children's Hospital.
