David “Skelly” Harold Skelton, 66, of Fond du Lac, WI passed away on January 6, 2021. He was born March 26, 1954 the son of Elaine and Delbert Skelton. David worked at Mercury Marine for 25 years but was forced to retire due to his health. David loved sports, especially football, where his favorite teams were the Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin Badgers. David also loved watching westerns and spending time with his friends and family.

A special thank you to David’s sister, Diane for being there for David and for all the extra things she did for him. We would also like to thank all of David’s friends for giving up their time to help David by getting him to appointments and everything else that they did for him. We would then like to thank St. Luke’s Hospital for providing David with a new heart and helping to keep David alive these last 20 years. Lastly, the family would like to thank Uecker-Witt Funeral Home.

David is survived by his sister, Diane (Gary) Pelot; brother, Patrick (Joann) Skelton; son, Ron (Teri) Skelton; grandson, Dominic Skelton; granddaughter, Casey Skelton; and his nieces and nephews. We would also like to include two of David’s special friends, Jim Pierringer and Brian Vogds as well as many other good friends who loved him dearly.

We will be having a gathering to celebrate David’s life on January 16, 2021 at 2:00 PM at the Eagles Club on 515 North Park Avenue in Fond du Lac. We will be having a small service and will then be watching the Packer game with Dave one last time. We will be providing food during the game.
