Members of SNMC were saddened to hear of the passing of Glenn Weaver. Glenn was a long time member who had supported the Disabled American Veterans on some of our early Poker runs. He was an active member of SNMC and was instrumental in helping get SNMC on the road in the early years of the club.
Glenn was the proud owner of two Mini Coopers, one of which is pictured below. One of his Minis had the John Cooper Works performance package on it that he won as a grand prize at the "A Mini Vacation in Vegas" (AMVIV) several years ago. At the time of his death, Glenn was a letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service in Carson City and lived in Meyers, California, near Lake Tahoe.
Glenn passed away quite unexpectedly at his home of pneumonia on
July 2, 2013.
Rest in Peace, Glenn . . . we know that you Enjoyed the Drive.
George S. Skibinski
(August 7, 1931—April 23, 2020)
We recently lost a special member of our car club. George attended many of our events with his daughter Donna Winter and her husband Brad. George always had a story to share and made everyone he came in contact with feel like an old friend. We will miss his presence and we offer our deepest condolences to the family he leaves behind.
Following is the obituary that was published in the Nevada Appeal on May 5, 2020:
George S Skibinski, a Dayton resident, passed away peacefully on April 23, 2020, at the age of 88. George was born in Newark, NJ on August 7, 1931 to Sophie (Dral) Skibinski and George J Skibinski. He grew up in New Jersey surrounded by his family that included his parents, brother Bob, numerous aunts, uncles and cousins that contributed to many fond memories.
George served in the U S Navy from 1951 to 1955 as an Aviation Structural Mechanic where he was stationed in many locations in the United States. However, his most favorite was when he was stationed in the Alameda and Oakland area of California. He had many stories of his time there especially the ones that involved his lifelong friend Daniel Mathews.
George married the love of his life Dorothy on June 27, 1959 in New Jersey. They were married for 44 wonderful years. They made the big move to California in 1963 along with their daughter Donna.
George worked at Litton Industries and Hughes Aircraft in Southern California as a production control specialist until his retirement.
George loved spending time and traveling with his family and friends. For those of you knew him well he would never pass up an invitation to share a meal, visit or lend a helping hand to his family and friends.
This last September, George, Donna and Brad made a trip to PA and NJ to visit family. We will have many happy memories of the time spent with our family during this visit.
George is survived by his daughter Donna (Brad) Winter in Dayton, granddaughter Ashley (Bryan) Anders in Reno,brother Bob (Eileen) Skibinski in Norristown PA, sister in law Florence Oliphant In Corvallis, OR and numerous nephews and nieces.
In his honor if you would like to share a meal, visit or extend a kind gesture with someone, George would like that.
