Most of you Tosebo campers know by now, but for any who might stumble across this site, I sadly report that Skip Sage dies on September 11, 2005 at his home in Royal Oak, MI. Skip was a camper starting in 1951 and was there until 1961. The last two summers he was the Waterfront Director at Tosebo. Skip's imposing figure and nose covered with zinc oxide were a constant fixture on the white bench in front of the Boathouse. Skip loved A&W root beer and would often bring back a 25 cent quart cone of not so cold root beer to a camper at midnight. He was also well remembered as a master of the "pink belly" for some deserving camper. Unable to attend the Reunion in June of 2005, several attendees of that event left a greeting on his home answering machine. His wife reported that he never erased that message from the machine and listened fondly to the memories of old friends.
