Richard Gordon Skinner Memorial
On September 29, 2015, MMI suddenly lost a beloved staff member while he was serving on a Vision Care Team in Ethiopia. Rick Skinner became ill after being in the country for a week and only days later, he passed away prior to learning he had leukemia. Rick served as Optical Coordinator for MMI since 2001. He was responsible for running the warehouse for our ministry, and as a licensed optician, was responsible for preparing equipment and supplies for all our Vision Care teams. In the past 35 years, Rick travelled to 17 countries around the world with MMI serving on over 60+ Vision Care teams.
With fond memories of a humble servant, the following three videos are provided for our MMI Family and friends around the world to join with us, along with Rick's family, to celebrate his life.
