Skip Lovelady

SKIP copy

I haven’t been “Skipper” since High School.  I shortened it to just Skip.  I can’t get some people to break old habits  LOL

After leaving Van Horn, I worked in discount stores and managed a variety store until Walmart put them out of business.  I then started working on RV’s   ( travel trailers and motorhomes ) and opened up a mobile repair service for 35 years and retired in the Spring of 2014.

Physically, I resided in the Amarillo area to the Dallas area to Pigeon Forge, TN and now reside permanently in Baytown, Texas, which is a suburb due east of Houston.


  1. I’m sorry to say, 3 days after this article appeared in the Van Horn Advocate, Skip Lovelady passed away. He is survived by his wife, Roni Lovelady, his father, Jim Lovelady, brothers, Mike and Bobby Lovelady and his sister, Cindy Moon. He will be missed forever. What a blessing the Lord gave us on earth for the time he was here.
