William Robert Skarin

William Robert Skarin, 81, passed away on January 6, 2024, at his home in Linden, California. Born to Robert and Patricia Skarin in San Francisco on October 3, 1942, William was a 4th generation Californian. During his early childhood, his family moved to Sacramento, where he spent his school years. After graduating from McClatchy High School in 1961, he worked at the local Stop-n-Shop grocery store, where he met his lifelong friend and future brother-in-law, Joe Silva, who introduced him to the love of his life, Georgina. As a young man, he served as a reservist in the Marines. He landed his first “real” career opportunity at PG&E, where he retired after 25 years of service. Soon after his retirement from PG&E, he landed a second career opportunity at Prima Fruta in Linden, CA, where he worked an additional 15 years as an industrial refrigeration specialist. William had a strong work ethic and had an unmatched talent for fixing anything that was in need of repair. William was a dedicated worker, a loving family man, and a loyal friend. He is survived by his wife Georgina, daughter Olga, stepson Manuel, and sister Diane, and many loyal friends and extended family members
