Timothy A. Skidmore
A graveside service was held Friday at Lakewood Memorial Park for Timothy Allen Skidmore, 50, of Oceanside. The former Hughson resident died very unexpectedly on Dec. 6, 2011

Born Aug. 30, 1961 in Ceres, Tim was the youngest child of Richard Skidmore and Jackie Solum. His family moved to Hughson in 1961 where he graduated from high school. He joined the Navy in 1979 and served for six years, partially on the U.S.S. Permit nuclear submarine. He married Judi Hildebrand in 1987 in Oceanside where their three sons were raised and continue to live. Tim was a dedicated shift supervisor at the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant, where he worked for 26 years. He was a devoted father to his sons, coaching them in sports and spending many happy hours at the bowling alley for weekly father-son tournaments.

He leaves behind his sons, Richard Skidmore, Tim Skidmore, and Andrew Skidmore, all of Oceanside; their mother, Judi Skidmore of Oceanside; his parents, Richard Skidmore and Jackie Solum of Modesto; his sister, Susan Rash of Modesto; and his brother, Dave Skidmore of Hughson.
