My sincerest condolences to Chris and his entire family on their loss. I will never forget my time in Gallitzin riding dirt bikes with Chris, Pete, and Paul. Peg did introduce me to her friend at Gables Department Store in Altoona. Her friend gave me a job in their appliance department that gave me the ability to continue as a HVAC Contractor when I moved back to Warren, Ohio. I will always remember Peg Skupien and how her introduction gave me a life long career. I do thank her!

God Bless and Take Care
