Hi!
You will want to search the Wainwright Star online
http://www.wainwrightlibrary.ab.ca/Newspaper-Archives
Scroll down to the bottom to access.
After you enter, type in Skinner, 1940's, 1943 (at the top) you will find the obituary of Fred Skinner in the September 15, 1943 issue.
This wonderful site with 100 years of the Wainwright Star digitized perfectly will keep you busy!

Hi,

Not sure if this link will work, but I went to the Wainwright Public Library's website and clicked on the link to their digitized newspapers (over 100 years's worth!), popped 'Fred Skinner' into the search and a whole page of mentions came up. Here is the url of the search results. Hope it works: http://canada.arcasearch.com/wcc/initArcaCode.asp

Funny; the first entry I saw was, "Fred Skinner was lucky enough to catch a young crane Saturday..."

It took me less than five minutes to access the info.
Good hunting :)
