Craig Edward Skinner

July 2, 1945 ~ January 8, 2023 (age 77) 77 Years Old


Craig Edward Skinner, age 77, of Hungry Horse, MT passed away January 8, 2023. He was born July 2, 1945 in Woodriver, Nebraska to the late Edward Skinner and Mary McGuire.

Craig was a Scottish-Irish man that loved being outdoors. He grew up on a farm in Nebraska and moved to California in 1957. Most times he could be outside without a shirt on so that he could soak up the sun. In high school, Craig was a gymnast, which gave him a physique he carried with him throughout life. He served in the United States Army from 1965 to 1969. After the service, he moved to Oregon. Some of his hobbies included wall-eye fishing, floating and tubing on the water, canoeing, surfing, and hunting. Craig was a man of faith and lived in the Canyon for 25+ years, where he attended Hungry Horse Chapel and Coram Community Church.

Craig is survived by wife, Linn Wills Skinner; brother, Tom Skinner (Christine); sister, Susan Skinner; brother, David Skinner; brother, Mike Skinner; and brother, Pat Skinner. In addition to his parents, Craig is preceded in death by son, Aaron; and daughter, Francine.
