He was born on November 6, 1932, in Dalark, Arkansas to the union of Eddie Lee Quarles, Jr., and Florence Alexander Quarles. During his early childhood he accepted Christ and united with the Mt. Olive A.M.E. Church family. Close friends and his family called him “Skippy”. He loved to garden and enjoyed being with family. Skippy was a hard worker and worked as in independent logger for years until he retired. His life a simple life, but he enjoyed every day just being “Skippy”. Because love is far greater than death, he departs this earth in body only.
