Anthony Norman Skae, 1919-2010

Just a brief post this morning.

Yesterday, John called Vancouver General Hospital, where his father has been for the past three weeks. He learned that Tony's condition wasn't improving, that he no longer had an interest in food and hadn't been out of his bed in a couple of days; his toe was worsening and was giving him a lot of pain. His breathing was becoming more and more laboured and his renal system was shutting down.

Last night, just before midnight, we received a call from VGH informing us that Tony had passed away. He was 90.


  1. Condolences on the passing of John's father and best wishes to you both.

  2. My deepest sympathy to John and yourself for the loss of his Father. I'm sure John you will both enjoy the treasure of his memory for many years to come.

  3. I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Warmest regards to you both.

  4. I'm sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts.

  5. I send my sympathies. I think it is hard to lose a parent no matter what age we are. May John's father Tony, now rest in peace.

  6. Gecondoleerd met dit verlies.
    Ook al heeft je schoonvader en bijzondere leeftijd bereikt, een dierbare verliezen doet altijd veel verdriet.
    Sterkte de komende tijd.

    Bedankt voor je post over de geschiedenis van Friesland.
    Ik kon niet in die post reageren, vandaar op deze plek even mijn complimenten.
