It is generally recognized that Ike Skelton will be remembered as one of Missouri’s greatest members to ever serve in the U.S. House of Representatives. He died this past Monday of what a funeral home in his Missouri hometown of Lexingtom said were complications from pneumonia. He was 81 years old and served in the U.S. House for 34 years. He was defeated in his re-election bid in 2010.

Although he never served in the military, he was one of the strongest advocates for our Armed Forces and served for a period as chairman of the House Armed Services Committee.
