It is with great sadness that the Dunsmuir Railroad Depot Historical Society announces the passing of its President, Anthony [Tony] Skalko. Tony was a long time member of the Depot Society and was instrumental in expanding the Museum and its operations, and he was also responsible for the Depot Society’s web presence. He will be remembered as a man who loved his family, friends, the railroad, his town of Dunsmuir, and the Dunsmuir Museum & Depot. A Celebration of his life was held at the Dunsmuir Depot on July 19, 2014, followed by a tour of the Museum he was so very passionate about. Family and friends spoke of his integrity, generosity and enthusiasm for Dunsmuir and its future.
As one person stated “He was the one you could call at 3AM to ask for help and he would be there.”
Tony will be greatly missed by all. In lieu of flowers, the Skalko family suggests memorial donations be sent to: Dunsmuir RR Depot Historical Society, PO Box 324, Dunsmuir, CA 96025
