So sorry to lose our long time friend and a fellow co-worker. Besides being one of Mastel Ford’s best employees for many years I thank him for showing my sons and grandsons who worked at the dealership the true meaning of do the job and do it right. Skip was a great teacher and leader to those who worked for and with him. He will be greatly missed by many but We know he is at peace and we will see him again. I sincerely regret that we will not be able to travel due to recent surgery. Our love goes out to the entire Robinson family. In our opinion they are part of our family - more than just friends.
