Robert Patrick Skelley, 67, of Canton, passed away on Wednesday, September 4, 2019. He was born on December 21, 1951 in Canton, Ohio to the late Robert and Regina Skelley. A resident of Canton, Rob "Rocket" was a professional guitarist and brought his love of music to people through teaching and performing. Rob was a dedicated father to Lani, a long-distance sidekick to his sister Micki, and beloved heart-friend to many others. He spent several years of his life living first in Holland and then Japan and seemed to possess a world of quiet wisdom.
Robert is survived by his daughter, Lani Skelley; sister, Micki Paul; nephew, Justin (Amanda) Paul; and many other loved ones.
