Mitchell Ryan Skyberg

Son, Brother, Uncle, Grandson, Nephew, Cousin, Friend, Writer, Hockey Player, Bartender, Fisherman, Hunter... these were all things Mitchell Ryan Skyberg was, but his spirit was much more than this. You could feel his spirit when he was laughing with you, playing hockey, riding his motorcycle, or serving you a drink at the bar. Mitch was Mitch- a true spirit of originality, simplicity, loyalty and above all else, freedom. What he left behind are family and friends who will miss him endlessly, but feel blessed to have had the chance to be part of his amazing existence.

Mitchell Ryan Skyberg was born on August 19, 1981 and died on October 8, 2010, doing what he loved; riding his motorcycle with the wind in his hair and sun on his face, through the back-roads of Minnesota.

He is survived by his parents, Patricia and Dale Skyberg; his sister, Andrea Skyberg; brother-in-law, Michael Greer; niece, Evelyn Skyberg Greer, and his Grandparents, Priscilla and Lorne Miller; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Evelyn and Elmer Skyberg; and his uncle, Rick Isackson.

Funeral Services will be at 1:00pm, Thursday October 14, 2010 at Zion Lutheran Church, 217 Main Street, in Blackduck, MN with Pastor Dan Heath officiating. A gathering of family and friends will be held after the service at The Pond in Blackduck, 224 Frontage Rd, Blackduck. Interment will be at the Hines Cemetery in Hines, MN at a later date. Cease Family Funeral Home of Blackduck assisted the family with arrangements.
