He went to Dickeyville and Folsomville School through the 8th grade & loved to go to the reunion luncheons when able.
Eskel was a Farmer most of his life and farmed 2000 acres of which 500+ he owned with his wife, sons Terry & Randy & their wives. He & Evelyn privately owned & drove a school bus for Warrick County School Corporation for 36 yrs.
