Glenfield – Charles Donald “Skip” Mihalyi, 62, died peacefully at home on Thursday, January 30.

Skip was born May 16, 1951, in Lowville. He attended General Martin and South Lewis Schools, acquired a BA from Oswego, a masters from the University of Rochester and completed his PhD course work in Philosophy.

For many years, Skip lived at the Mihalyi home, helping his dad take care of the land. Recently, he also served as his mom's companion, gopher and handyman.

He was somewhat of a naturalist: he loved the pine forest, the rock, the Black River and the plants and animals that lived in the area. He tamed birds, collected mushrooms, gave tours and took care of the forest.

Skip knew a great deal about everything! He played guitar, cooked, worked with wood and repaired things. He liked ideas and learning. For a number of years he taught ethics and philosophy classes at JCC, Ft. Drum, and Dry Hill Prison.

He is survived by his mother, Bernice; his sisters, Karen (Dick Cool), Syracuse, Sherry (Mike Koch), New Woodstock and Susan, Rochester; his brother, Dale (Janet), Dallas, TX; nephew Josh; nieces, Cora, Willa and Dacari, and great niece and nephew, Page and TJ.

His father Louis and brother Mark died previously.
