I just now learned of Skye's passing, having seen the news in Frontiers Magazine. I knew Skye through our assignments here at Boeing, and he was always a joy to be around. Continued prayers for the family....

I will miss my brother. We enjoyed an affectionate and easy banter when we were together. It is hard to imagine this life without his presence. I hope those who knew Skye and his family will now rally around his sweet wife and children. May we keep them in our prayers and actions now. What a special family he left behind for all of us to enjoy and bless.

It broke my heart when I heard the news of my uncle passing away. I loved him so much and I wish I could have made the funeral. He was good man and made an effort to see our family everytime we took a trip to Washington. Im going to miss him dearly.

We are deeply saddened to learn of Skye's passing. We enjoyed getting to know him and his family during Clan Moffat gatherings each summer. It is comforting to know that Skye will carry the flame in heaven for Clan Moffat to form the eternal flaming saltire while proudly stating, “I’m Skye Fields from Clan Moffatt and we’re the best damn cattle thieves north of the border!" Rest in peace Skye, you are missed.
