Graduated from Taylorsville High School and Salt Lake Community College as a certified EMT. Sky, we are so proud of you. You are the light of your father's life. Skyler had a smile that would light up a room, and he was a friend to you whether he knew you for a day, month or years. He loved to ride his bullet bike, go golfing with his Dad, draw to pass the time or spend it with his family. He was his grandmother Pearl's pride and joy and life.
Sky was admired by all and cared for by all. He loved working at Interstate Image with his Dad and friends and was happy to make Shop Supervisor and see his art all over the valley.
