Obituary of Wayne George Skala

Wayne George Skala, 64, passed away peacefully on March 25, 2019 at Ellis Hospital with his family at his side. Born in Schenectady, he was the son of the late George and Louise Skala. Wayne was a 1972 graduate of Scotia Glenville High School. He proudly defended his country in the Air Force from 1975 to 1980. Wayne worked for many years as an engineer for SUNY Albany. He was an honorary life member of the Thomas Corners Fire Department. Wayne often would frequent music festivals and enjoyed electronics. He also loved rebuilding air stream trailers, working on the family camp on Sacandaga Lake with his brothers, and helping his family and friends. Above all, he enjoyed the time he spent with his family.

Additionally, his grandchildren Tristen Ayotte and Zachary Hart, brothers Robert (Cindy) Skala, Glenn (Sandy) Skala, Bruce (Laurie) Skala and Craig (Linda) Skala as well as many nieces and nephews survive.
