R.I.P. Skipper ‘Water Dog’ Hough

Just heard the sad news from a friend of mine.

I’ll never forget teaming up with you to promote MayFest on Main in North Myrtle Beach back in 2007. It was crazy but you made it happen, man. Glad I could be a part of it.

From that big news conference we had at City Hall to kick things off to the day of the event with all of those people out there having  such a great time, MayFest was really memorable for me. Definitely one of the highlights of my time in NMB.

Thanks for having the confidence in a rookie PR guy to help you with your big project. Your words of encouragement meant a lot to me at the time and still do today. It was truly a pleasure to work with you.

I hope you’re up there somewhere in Heaven enjoying the music and a view of the ocean…

  1. Kc, your comment left me feeling very humbled and I sincerely thank you for sharing your thoughts about your Dad here. I can only imagine how difficult the past few days have been and I would like to send you and your entire family my sympathies. I am glad to hear that you are thinking of all of the good times with your father and I have faith that those fond memories will get you through the hardest of times. Your Dad was a hard working, dedicated guy. It really was a pleasure to team up with him for MayFest the year I was working for the City of NMB. He taught me a lot and the end result of his hard work was a great event that the entire community enjoyed. He is definitely and will be missed. I have to imagine he is looking down on you and smiling though – and always will be. God bless.

  2. I just wanted to tell you I appreciate the kind words about my father….. I dont know exactly how to feel at the moment and its been the hardest few days of my life. Although there were bad memories, there were also some of the BEST of my life that really are the only things I want to hold onto. I miss my Daddy but somehow it comforts me that other people miss him too, that he didnt just have an impact on MY life but that he impacted thousands in his lifetime!!!
