Another Legend Passes

22 June 2017 - 08:11 AM

Our dear friend Richard "Blue" Skeen passed this morning with his family by his side in Michigan.  Blue loved slingshots.  Blue loved slingshot folk.  Blue was a gentle, generous, and fun loving man...and we will dearly miss him.

 

For those who didn't know Blue or know of Blue, he was the reigning national slingshot champion through the seventies and eighties...no one could beat him.  He shot faster, straighter and with more joy than any of his competitors and he never met a soul who was not quickly a friend.

 

Whether he was dancing, making slingshots, or teaching a kid how to shoot, he did it with joy and a smile on his face.  He was my dear friend and mentor and I will miss him immensely.  His time has come to pass on and I will hold my years spent as his friend close to my heart for the rest of my life.  He was an adopted grandpa to my kids, a friend and father figure to me, and a pillar of our great community.

 

Shoot 'em straight with the Angels Blue!  We will never forget you and your legacy.
