Edward Michael Skaggs
Edward, who went by Mike, was born July 29, 1954 and passed away on February 21, 2021 of natural causes. He was born to Clifford and Edith Skaggs in Denver, Colorado. His family lovingly knew him as Rocky.
Rocky is survived by his two children, Hilary Breckel and Kevin Skaggs. He is also survived by his three sisters: Betty Paquet, Beverly Gunderson, Vicki Rue and several nieces and nephews.
Rocky is a veteran of the United States Air Force. His hobbies included an avid love of music, and there was not a song he couldn’t name the artist, and date released of. He was also a member of the Grand Junction Gem and Mineral Club and enjoyed collecting rocks, gems, and crystals. Rocky was interested in genealogy and did extensive research into his lineage, connecting with lost family members he found in Kentucky. Rocky was also a volunteer at the DVAw, helping fellow disabled veterans.
His children shared interest in his hobbies: Hilary is a gemologist and Kevin a musician.
He will be missed by family and friends.
