Skurla's POS Solution's founder, Phyllis Skurla turns 90 July 5th!
One of my favorite traditions at Skurla's POS Solutions has been Lynn Skurla Perkins and/or her mother Phyllis bringing everyone in the office a shamrock shake from McDonald's for St. Patrick's Day! The #nextgen of Skurla's is keeping with this tradition by bringing Phyllis her shamrock shake and visiting her at the retirement community where she lives.
Skurla’s co-founder and Alaskan legend, John Skurla (my dad), passed away peacefully on October 30th. He was 90 years old.
Many of you may have known John, who provided some of the first cash registers and point of sale systems to Alaskans before he and his wife, Phyllis, founded Skurla’s back in 1976. Even though he retired several years ago, his thoughts, ideas, and business principles still continue to guide and influence the company today. He meant so much to many different people. He was a boss, a father, a friend, a trusted advisor, and more. The team at Skurla’s POS Solutions honors John Skurla as the legend he was and will continue to cherish his memory for years to come.
His service will be at St John United Methodist Church on Thursday, November 11th at 4 p.m. AST. Please note that this service will require a mask to be worn. It will also be live streamed for those that can't attend in person (check this page for an update on how).
In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully asks that donations be sent to VA SPECIAL REHABILITATION EVENTS (Fund #4417) Donations from this fund are used to financially support the travel expenses for Veteran patients attending VA-sponsored rehabilitation events such as the National Veteran Golden Age Games as well as National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic in Colorado.

John Skurla turns 90 May 13th! So I am writing this blog to honor my dad and the legacy he created for me, the Skurla's family, and his family and network of friends and business associates.
