June 12, 1986 — A Page County boating access site will be named in honor of R.W. “Skip” Inskeep, a game warden for 25 years who died Nov. 9.
Bixler’s Ferry will be renamed after Inskeep, who was well known and highly regarded in his field.
The proposal was made by Larry Hart, chief of the lands and engineering division of the Virginia Commission of Game and Inland Fisheries.
Inskeep demonstrated dedication to his profession when he inspected boat ramps and other facilities following the November flood shortly before his death. He did this despite the face he was recovering from a heart attack.
