Martin Skala, a Darien resident for over 40 years, passed away peacefully at home on January 6, 2019. He was a dynamic member of the community within faith, political and social circles. Martin never met a stranger, just a future friend.
Martin’s love for connecting and bringing people together found a perfect focus as one of the first members of Common Ground Committee. Common Ground’s message is one he fervently believed in: “Improving the tenor of public discourse on topics of concern to our communities, our country and the world... Engaging in constructive dialogue about the many challenges facing our country and our society today.”
