Skylar DeMarco Sims was born on September 25, 1997 in Atlanta, Georgia to the loving parents Steve Sims and Catherine Porter Jones; stepfather Roosevelt Jones, Jr. He was the first born child of his parents.

Skylar was introduced to Christ early in life. He later became a member of Travelers Rest Missionary Baptist Church, where he worshiped for quite a while.

At an early age Skylar loved playing in water. So at age five he began swimming lessons. Skylar was very athletic. Throughout his life he participated in multiple sports including: little league baseball, football (Forest Park to Middle School), basketball, soccer, track (Woodland Middle & High School) where he broke the record in middle school, and wrestling during high school.

Skylar also had a love for reading. This early passion afforded him knowledge, which resulted in him becoming a gifted and honor roll student. Another of his passions was music. Skylar’s interest in music led him into orchestra where he played the viola from middle to high school (Woodland). There was nothing too hard for him to accomplish. Skylar was a smart, intelligent and independent young man who was full of life and was truly gifted with talent. He would give his all to any endeavor he undertook.

Skylar had a true vision of becoming a massage therapist one day. Later in life, he decided to move to Montana where he wanted to start a new life. Skylar met several new friends that ultimately became his second family. Skylar has always given his hands and heart to anyone that crosses his path. His friends, coworkers, and neighbors all spoke so highly of him. He will truly be missed by all.
