Obituary of Dale Parker Skoog
It is with profound sadness that the Skoog family announces the passing of our beloved husband and father, Dr. Dale Parker Skoog, on February 20th at his home in North Venice, Florida, following a brief illness. Dr. Skoog was predeceased by his parents, Evar John and Gladys Elizabeth, as well as by his brother Donn Evar (Yuko). He is survived by his adoring wife, Kathleen Quinn Skoog; her daughter, Kim Marie (Thomas) Krug; his children Ingrid Maria, Dr. Erik Dale (Barbara) and Christian Louis (Julissa); as well as by his grandchildren: Parker Thomas, Kathryn Elizabeth and Henry Joseph Krug; Samuel Justin, Frank William, Erik Dale Jr. and Anne Marie Skoog. Dr. Skoog attended Nichols School, Cornell University and Tulane University School of Medicine. After completing a residency in urology through the University of Buffalo School of Medicine, where he also served as an assistant clinical professor, Dr. Skoog entered private practice, eventually retiring from surgery in 1995 as a partner of Buffalo Medical Group. Dr. Skoog was a skilled practitioner, being the first urologist in Greater Buffalo to employ ultrasound technology in the treatment of kidney stones. Upon his retirement from Buffalo Medical Group, Dr. Skoog served as Medical Director of Suburban Adult Services Inc., a position he held for twenty-four years. His other passions included golf, reading, gardening and croquet. Dr. Skoog was known for his generosity of spirit, his close friendships and his great love of life. A celebration of Dr. Skoog’s life will take place in North Venice on March 12th; another will take place this summer in Buffalo. Dr. Skoog will be deeply missed by all who loved him.
The Skoog family wishes to thank the nurses of Tidewell Hospice who so lovingly cared for Dr. Skoog during his illness. Flowers are gratefully declined.To plant a beautiful memorial tree in memory of Dale Skoog, please visit our Tree Store
