The View: Skip Finley

This month we dedicate this space to honoring an industry icon and friend, Skip Finley. It is so very rare that a single person is so loved and appreciated by so many in a single industry. Please hold Skip and his beautiful family in your thoughts and hearts.

Just a few of the many dedications to this amazing man

Love and hugs and prayers and more hugs – I will hold all the memories of our times throughout the years close to my heart …I will always smile when I think of you. Love you buddy. –Marni Heilbrunn

People come into your life for a reason. Learn from them, grow and appreciate what they have taught you. We haven’t known each other long but I’ll never forget being greeted by you with such a warm and thoughtful welcome. It was honest and sincere and I will treasure the time I was given to know you. –Danielle Coleman Payne

I am pretty bummed I couldn’t find a picture of the two of us together as evidence, but the memories of my time on the coffee circuit are filled with your smiling face! –Megan Graham

Skip me and old lady are always thinking of you. I guess it’s time for us to make a trip down to see you all. Peace bother. –Marty Curtis

Headed back to the States for a couple days.  Need to go see a Friend, Brother, Coffee Industry Icon.  One hell of a Amazing Guy. Skip Finley –Mike Love
