It is with great sadness that the Plainville Fire Department has lost a retired member. Chief Skinner served his country in Vietnam with the U.S Army 575th Engineers in 1965 and then joined the Plainville Fire Department full time in 1968. He served his whole career with the Plainville Fire Department and became the Chief of the Department in 1985 until his retirement in 1995. He was the father of our current Acting Deputy Fire Chief Robert Skinner Jr. The arrangements are as follows;
Wake- Tuesday May 16th @ Sperry & McHoul 15 Grove St N Attleboro Ma from 4pm-7pm. There will be Fire Department walkthrough line up at 3:30
Funeral service will be held at the Plainville Methodist Church 16 East Bacon St at 11:00 am on Wednesday May 17th followed with a procession to the Plainville Cemetery.
Chief Skinner, you will be missed by all.
Thank you for your service.
