Michael Allen Skubis, 65, of Forestville,  sadly passed

away peacefully Sunday, July 23rd after a lengthy battle

with cancer.

Michael was one of four boys, Eddie (deceased), Rick 

and Danny. 

He was a lover of the Buffalo Bills and a season ticket holder

along with being an avid Pink Floyd listener. You could find

him any weekend scavenging yard sales as he was a junker who 

loved to collect hot wheels, antiques and anything he found 

interesting. He was never without his best companion(s), 

Sheppard mix Buddy and his numerous black lab rescues, 

Clifford, Floyd, Rufus and Cooley.

Nicholas Skubis, along with their spouses, Eric Sotelo and Brianna
