Obituary for Keith Skidmore

Keith Skidmore
Keith Lynn Skidmore, 70, of Nokesville, Virginia passed away at his home on December 9th 2016.
Keith is survived by his wife Barb, brother Jack, sons Kristofer and Logan, stepsons Kenneth and Justin, and grandchildren Kiersten, Kolton, and Addison. Keith was a loving husband, brother, father, grandfather, and friend to all.

Having served 27 years in the Army as an Armor Officer, Keith commanded elements at every echelon including a year in Vietnam during which he was awarded three Bronze Stars, one with valor device. Additionally, Keith was twice awarded the Legion of Merit, Meritorious Service Medal with one oak leaf cluster, and is a member of the Order of St. George and St. Barbara.

Upon retiring as a Colonel from the Army, Keith served as a defense contractor in the Washington, D.C. area and ultimately became CEO of NaturalScapes, a successful excavating and engineering firm founded by his stepson Justin.

When not working, Keith was an avid golfer and member of Evergreen Country Club. Keith also enjoyed reading, cooking and spending any free time with family. Keith was always present to lend an ear, offer sage council, or to simply share a glass of wine. He will be sorely missed by friends and family alike, all of which are grateful to have had him in their lives.

They family will receive friends on Wednesday, December 14, 2016, from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. at Baker-Post Funeral Home & Cremation Center, 10001 Nokesville Road, Manassas, VA 20110. Funeral services will immediately follow at 1:00 p.m. in the funeral home chapel.

Interment, with full military honors, will be held in Arlington National Cemetery on Friday, May 12th, 2017 at 1:00 p.m.

“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.

Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.

When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way.

Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

~ Chief Tecumseh
