John Skala, age 69, of Canal Fulton, Ohio went home to be with the Lord on Friday December 18th, 2020 due to unexpected illness. John loved everyone around him. He had his own special language, that those who knew him well, came to understand. John had a way of letting people know that he genuinely cared for them, and sincerely appreciated their friendship. John was loved and supported by his dear friends at Echoing Ridge, where he had resided for the last 8 years. He was an avid lover of the abacus, which will be a memory of John that will not be forgotten. John was preceded in death by his parents Herbert Kenneth Skala and Margaret May (Buda) Skala. John is survived by his siblings Jean (Don) Dorland of Medina, Ohio and Charles (Fran) Skala of Darien, Georgia. He is also survived by numerous friends and loved ones. Calling Hours will be held on Wednesday Dec. 23rd at Swigart Easterling Funeral Home, 624 Cherry St. E. (Rt. 93) Canal Fulton from 12:00pm-1:00pm. A Memorial service will be held in Honor of John's life following the calling hours at 1:00pm. John's Burial will immediately follow the Memorial service at Canal Fulton Cemetery. A special thank you to APSI for providing Legal Guardianship, and thank you to Echoing Hills Village, Inc. for providing excellent care and a home for John where he was truly happy and sincerely loved.
