I was a student of his in 2016-17 and he was honestly the best teacher I ever had even now. Our class was pretty bad but we still had fun and Mr. Skaggs always joked around but we still got his work done. Mr. Skaggs had a group of 5 people called the “failure five” which were five people that were failing his class and I was one of them. I never felt like that was meant to be rude or anything because he always pushed me and the others to pass his class. I ended up barely passing the class but when I look back on the class it was nothing but fun he always had fun activities for us to do. I still one of the projects we worked on. I wish I connected with him more and I was really sad when I found out he had passed.

I grew up with his son Clayton, his wife was my mother and sister's primary physician, and I went to church with the family. From the age of 10 i lived 6 to 8 houses down from him. I would on occasion go to their house to play XBOX with Clayton and a few friends from school. I love the Skaggs family. I think the greatest example of how great of a man he was is how great his children turned out. As sad and depressing as it is to see him go, he lives on in his children, his students, and he lives on in all other's who knew him.
