So sorry to hear of Tom's passing. He was a great boss and a great educational leader. We always enjoyed being with Tom and Edie. Our sincere condolences to Tom's family.
Tom was a dear friend and mentor
Deepest condolences to all you Skarp kids at the passing of Tom. When I first moved to Oakes (1994) Tom was a big part of the ambulance service. Many days & nights I had enjoyable conversations with Tom on the way back from the Fargo transfers, being I was the age of his kids I guess he saw fit to become my mentor even though I was 35 yrs old at the time. His insight and words of wisdom will long be remembered and I feel privileged in saying I knew him. Well done good and faithful servant.
Please give our sympathy to the Skarp family of the passing on Tom and Carol. The Knudson's
The peace of Christ to you and your siblings and families, Roger. It was an honor to know and serve your dad and Carol while they were among us. We are praying for you all here in Monett. -Pr Andrew Kennell
Our sincere sympathies to all of you with the passing of your Dad. We were so sad to hear of Tom’s passing. I worked at the Vocational Center in Oakes, doing secretarial work for Tom. I worked for him while in High School and again for awhile after getting married. I really enjoyed his sense of humor! A monetary donation will be given to the Oakes Golf Course in his memory. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Dennis & Shelly Forward
Sorry for your loss. May God give you comfort.
Roger so sorry for your loss. May God bless your family during this difficult time.
