Skyler is survived by his parents, Charles “Fergie” Ferguson and Nannie Ferguson. His grandparents were Charles “Fergie” Ferguson and Nannie Ferguson.

Skyler was the kind of young man who could brighten the atmosphere of any room he entered. He was really passionate about the game of basketball and his tennis shoes. He was the type of person who would put the needs of others ahead of his own and volunteer his time and resources to do so.
He was a successful student who went on to compete in the J.A.G. program at the national level for his state. He enjoyed his time at Wendy’s and Walmart on 28 East, both of which he worked. He had the bravery of a hero but the charm of a joker, and as a result, he won the affection of a great number of people.
In addition to that, he gave the gift of life to others by donating organs when he passed away. All those who knew and loved him will miss him dearly after his passing.
