Bryan Duane Skidmore, 52, of Brookings, died Nov.   16, 2011, at the home of his caregiver and dear friend, Kathy Benjamin. 

He was born in Carson City, Nev., Jan. 17, 1959, the youngest son of Duane and Donna Skidmore. 

After graduating from Carson City schools, he attended Evergreen State College.  Bryan worked as a computer technician in a variety of fields, in many areas. He eventually owned the Italian restaurant, Bella Italia, which was very successful.

Throughout his life, Bryan was involved in theatrical activities, as an actor, writer and director, and was a founder of a theater in Brookings.

Bryan had a wonderful sense of humor and made everyone around him laugh. He loved playing board games, and always wanted to win. He was a great listener, and loved being entertained as much as he loved entertaining.

He married Haley Hoyt and was an amazing stepfather to her four wonderful children.

He is survived by his parents of Carson City, and three siblings – Sheri, Brent, and Debbie. Also surviving are  numerous nieces and nephews who loved him. He leaves many friends who shared his love of the theater.  

A memorial service will be  in Brookings on or near his Jan. 17 birthday. A service notice will be published in a later edition of the Pilot. 

Cremation is under the direction of Redwood Memorial Chapel.
