Harry B. Skillin, 72 of Waterboro, passed away December 15, 2021 in North Berwick.
He was born November 26, 1949 in Goffstown, NH, the son of Shirley Prescott Skillin and graduated from Goffstown High School. After graduation, Harry dedicated the next 34 years of his life to the U.S. Air Force. He had worked stateside in Maintenance for Pease Air Force Base.
Harry or the “General” as some called him, was an avid sportsman, loving fishing and hunting, even re-loading his own bullets. He especially loved the Allagash. Harry was a kind hearted man who shared what he had with others. He supported the Wounded Warriors Project and Red Cross. He was very confident in World Events as he absorbed all the information he could and was an avid Trump Supporter. He was a member of the Somersworth Legion, enjoyed gardening, playing cards and telling the best stories you’ve ever heard! Every morning Harry went to his local Aroma Joe’s in East Waterboro where his girls there, whom he was so fond of, knew his order before he arrived. They held a special place in his heart. After picking up his AJs, he would head to the lake for his daily conversations with dear friend Melanie. Harry recently got a new roommate of whom he was so very proud. Their conversations meant the world to him and brought him so much happiness. Harry just celebrated 18 years sober.
Harry was pre-deceased by his mother and step father, Shirley Skillin and Clarence Farnum and step-son, Michael Perreault. He will be sorely missed by his daughter, Tammie Skillin of North Berwick; step-son Ricky (Colleen) Perreault of NH and step-daughter, Tina Perreault and companion Reggie Theriault of Lebanon; grandchildren, Nicholas, Cory and Derek and Kailyn Masse, Ashton Theriault, Brittany Williams, Mitchell, Morgan and Hattie Staples, David, Shannon, Katelynn, Brianna Perreault and numerous great-grandchildren.
