Already you are missed Nick. As you sit two pews in front of me at the First United Presbyterian Church~~ with your mother & brother. That space was empty this morning. I’m at a loss for words to express condolences for the parents.

I last saw Nick at Beaver Local High School on January 10th, the last time I substituted there. I had watched him grow over the past few years and thought as I saw him last, that he was growing tall and strong and was looking ‘good to go’ — he’ll be somebody someday. I was saddened by the news of his death. Rest in Peace, Skrinjar.

I never knew Nick personally, but I always saw him in the halls and in the Main Office. He was always smiling and nice to everyone he spoke to. He will be greatly missed in the halls of Beaver Local. My prayers are with his family… God has gained an Angel.

Mr and Mrs. Skrinjar and Noah,

Our hearts and prayers are with you. My husband and I did not have the privilege to personally meet Nick, so all we know is what we heard from our daughter, Amanda. Each day she came home from her ROTC Class and ROTC Rifle Team practice and told us about her wonderful friend, Nick. Each day she described his wonderful qualities, those that showed great leadership skills and comraderie. It was his patience and kindness, as well as his willingness to share his knowledge and talents with others that made him the special friend that he was to Amanda, and others. Your son, brother, will be remembered for the wonderful person that he became because of the life that he lived. May you be comforted to know that his life made a positive impact on others. He will be greatly missed.

Our hearts and prayers will continue to be with you.


Dan and Diana Kelley Stewart,

Mr. and Mrs. Skrinjar and Noah,

I did not know you or Nick personally but knew of you from formerly living in East Liverpool and from friends and relatives who had you Mrs. Skrinjar as a teacher. I last saw you at my niece Colleen Gills graduation party. She always had great things to say about you and I just wanted to tell you how very sorry I am for the loss of your son. I had your Mom as a B.O.E. teacher at E.L.H.S. many years ago. Please extend my condolences to her also.

Mrs Skrinjar and Family,

I can’t express the deep sadness and sympathy I have for you all.I know how you all felt about Nick,he was a wonderful young man who loved to make people laugh and just feel better about themselves.I know I am proud to have known your son and you Mrs.Skrinjar,your son appreciated life so much,much more than a lot of people who are older let alone someone who was only 18.God does things for reason’s unknown to us and sometimes we might not want to understand why he does the thing’s he does but we have to put our faith in God and let him do what he is best at doing and that is loving all of us,which is what he is doing with Nick.My prayers are with you all and again I am so very sorry for your loss.Erin Gill

MRS. Skrinjar,

I’m one of nick’s friends that was unable to attend his funeral due to me being stationed in South Korea with the US Army. I was very fond of your son and I will miss him very much. I can only imagine what your family is going through right now.. I know that when I lost another friend of mine I was extremely upset. Well my prayers are with your family at this time of great sorrow.

My deepest condolences go out to all friends

and family members. The hardest thing in life is

death but no one knows when and where, not even

why. This poem I wrote for my

wedding but goes along with life so well I had

to share with all…………..God Bless My prayers are

with all of you…….


I wonder what our road will hold

that we must walk each day

and what our futures are to be

along its varied ways.

I wonder that each bend will hide

that only love can see

and which, of joys that we may find

was it only meant to be?

Whatever are our fates today,

we’ll walk it to its end

and we will seek and find our loves

that hide around each bend

for we walk with love in hand

as God would have us do-

and he will light each fond

of love he fashioned,

made and grew..

Nick was a great kid he was upbeat.He loved life and anyone that ever knew him will miss him very much.My thoughts are with you.

Amber Hartley Morris

Nick was a very good person. He was caring and

understanding. He was a fun person to be around.

You could never be around him without laughing

about something he was doing. In band the

percussion had a cadence called Mo Diddly, Nick

had a special dance to it that made everyone laugh.

We could never do that cadence unless Nick was

there to dance to it. Now I think he would want

the band to do it in his memory. Everyone will miss

him and his little ways of making people laugh.


YOU SOON. My deepest sympathy goes out to the

family and friends of Nick.
