Ronald “Joe” Skiles

February 3, 1975 ~ January 2, 2022 (age 46)


Ronald “Joe” Skiles, late of Franklin, Indiana, passed away on January 2, 2022.

Born on February 3, 1975, in Indianapolis, Joe attended Franklin Community Schools and went on to become a salesman. Energetic and positive, with an infectious sense of humor, he always lightened the mood and made others feel comfortable. Joe had a persuasive way with words and could talk to anyone – the kind of guy who never met a stranger. He loved fishing, and cherished his connection with God. Joe will be forever missed by his family and friends, who will treasure their memories of him as a free spirit who was always there to lend a helping hand.

Joe is survived by his children, Miranda and Joey Skiles, Jayden, Asher, and Memphis Edwards, and Gavin and Jaylin Poindexter; and his sisters, Kerri Whittington, Roberta Sullivan, Marjorie Skiles, Kristen Neice, and Melissa Gonzalez. He was preceded in death by his parents, Ronald Vern and Bess Skiles; his brothers, Daniel Whittington and James Neice; and his sisters, Autumn Skiles and Lauri Holbrook.

A celebration of Joe’s life will be held at a later date.
