Obituary of Glenn A. Fordham
Glenn A. “Skippy” Fordham passed away peacefully, at his home in Waukesha, on July 13, 2020 at the age of 68 years. Skippy was born on February 21, 1952, the son of Wilbur and Ruth Frances Fordham. He graduated high school in 1970 and went on to work as a Mason Assistant and part-time at various restaurant establishments. Skippy loved listening to rock music, playing his guitar, and riding his bike. He regularly attended Al-Anon Support meetings, playing in a pool league, and despite his disabilities, even earned his brown belt in Tae-Kwon-Do. Skippy’s greatest joy was spending time with his friends and family. He will always be remembered for his friendly smile and kind heart.
Skippy will be dearly missed by siblings, Gerry, Bev, and Cheryl; nephew, Sean; nieces, Becca, Sarah, and Isabella; and dear friends and neighbors, Dale & Carolee Heinen. Skippy is further survived by many grand- nieces, grand-nephews, other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Terry.
