Celebration of Life for Morris 'Mo' Skirvin

A celebration of life ceremony will be conducted for Morris "Mo" Skirvin at 4 p.m. Sunday, July 27, at the old Red House restaurant, 1412 Old State Road 46, 1⁄2 mile west of the Brown County State Park entrance.

All are welcome to celebrate his life and share favorite Mo stories.

Mo passed away peacefully at home June 12.

He was a longtime pharmacist at Brown County CVS, 1968 graduate of Brown County High School and 1981 graduate of the School of Pharmacy at Butler University.

He is survived by his partner in life, Rita Shoup; brothers, Patrick (Star), Marc (Dana), and Michael (Charr) Skirvin; a sister, Terry Skirvin; nieces, Kathryn Gardner (Chad), Adrienne and Mary Skirvin; nephews, David, Ben and Matthew Skirvin (Marisa McKelvey); and several great-nieces. He will sadly be missed by many friends, including his former wife, Dawn Snider; his extended family, Kara Shoup/Elliott Smith, Erin Shoup, and Keeley Shoup/Justin Fill.

Mo’s wishes were that donations be made to the Brown County Humane Society in his memory.
