John Harvey "Skip" Yocom (May 6, 1943 – Oct. 6, 2022) was a successful racing driver, a thoughtful steward, and a passionate member of Oregon Region SCCA for decades. He served as Chief of Flags, on the region's Board of Directors, and as one of the most respected stewards in the nation. He won over 100 races, mostly in his VW Rabbit and then Datsun 240Z, and won numerous championships.
Skip often said, "the regional racer is the backbone of the club" and he lived the truth of that statement. Skip showed up, drove clean and fast, and was respected by his competitors.
In his weekday life, Skip worked in the insurance industry, and was a veteran officer in the U.S. Navy. He is survived by his beloved wife Judith and their children.
