Skip Tandy was born in Oak Park, Illinois on January 4, 1948.
This of course means that he
has now hit the age where he
can receive full Social Security benefits!
Skip served his country as a Sergeant in the U.S.Marine Corps from 1966 to 1970.
It is my
understanding that he
knows all about the "Hawk Missile", so feel free to test his
if you can.
Luckily for us he
did not have to go to Vietnam due to the "sole surviving son rule".
received an academic scholarship to BYU
in September of 1971.
loves construction and
knows it pretty much from "top to bottom".
has worked fulltime for Provo City since May 1989.
plans are to retire four (4) years from this January and then serve an LDS Temple Building Mission.
is fluent in French and he
states that his
Spanish isn't too bad.
last three sons served LDS missions in South American and he
took several Spanish classes to keep up with them.
beautiful wife Sue just had their 44 wedding anniversary on January 3 rd. For this spotlight Skip
said, "I married so far above myself it's still amazing to me, and others, that she
has stuck with me this long.
The photo below shows a good picture of Skip and his
wife,in addition to that Porsche that he

In addition they currently have 11 grandchildren (6 grandsons and 5 granddaughters), ranging from 8 months to the oldest who turns 22 in March of this year.

shared the following thoughts with us regarding the Chapter: "I absolutely love the Beehive Chapter
and have always wanted to see it flourish.
I took over as secretary from Bruce Palmer and served in that capacity approximately 10 years.
I have been privileged to work with
many great people in that capacity and the current Presidency is no exception."
As a Chapter we truly appreciate all that you have done, and continue to do for us Skip!
Thank you for your service to the Chapter!
