John J. Skinnon, CPA (1956-2019)

In Loving Memory of John J. Skinnon, CPA


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our colleague John Skinnon. John passed unexpectedly on July 28, 2019.

John co-founded Skinnon and Faber, CPA’s, P.C. in 1991. In addition to his responsibilities as a partner in the firm, John was also the Chair of the Department of Accounting and an Assistant Professor at St. Joseph’s College in Patchogue.

John’s guidance and kindness aided both clients and students in many ways. John was always available to answer a question or solve a problem. He worked diligently, was sincere and had a grand sense of humor. In an effort to continue his good work, we are working on establishing a scholarship fund to benefit accounting students at St. Joseph’s College.

John was instrumental in establishing the framework for the firm, a full service public accounting firm. His long-term efforts will enable our partners and staff to continue to provide quality service to all our clients. Please contact us with any questions or concerns. Our entire staff is available to you.

John’s dedication to helping others both personally and professionally has had a profound effect on everyone he came into contact with. He will be missed by all.

In an effort to continue his legacy, a scholarship fund has been established to benefit students enrolled in the M.B.A. Accounting Program at St. Joseph’s College. We hope you can join us by contributing to the Professor John Skinnon Accounting Scholarship at https://alumni.sjcny.edu/skinnon or contact our office for a contribution form.

This is what our many satisfied clients have to say:

I've been using Skinnon and Faber for several years for both my personal income taxes and an S Corp that I own. I have been very satisfied with them on all levels. They respond promptly to questions and concerns in language I can actually understand and I can't imagine being treated any better anywhere else.
Eric Graig
Business Owner
I have worked with the Faber Team for 12 years now in different municipalities. They are professional, knowledgeable and courteous. Frank is always available for questions throughout the year, not just during the audit. His experience and impressive municipal client list reinforces our decision to utilize his team for financial statement review.

I have had the pleasure of working with Skinnon and Faber for over 25 years. They have been both my personal and business accountants and I couldn’t be happier with the quality of their work, their professionalism and level of communication. They continually exceed my expectations and I trust them completely to handle all of my needs and value not only the services they provide, but their advice and friendship.
