Richard Paul Scribner "Richie Rich", formerly of Medford and longtime resident of Revere, shed the worn out body that could never contain his independent and passionate spirit at 2:AM on January 20, 2021. Richard was at his family’s home and was surrounded by his loved ones. His soul rose above the Ipswich Bay that he so dearly loved and went home to God at the age of 68.
Richie leaves behind his beloved mom Barbara (McLaughlin) Scribner of Newtonville and joins his dad the late Paul R. Scribner. Richard had served in the US Coast Guard and had been employed as a Real Estate Broker, for over 30 years in the Brighton/Allston area.
There was no one like Richie. He was a poet, a song writer, a deep thinker who avidly gathered information. He loved a good debate, but he will be most missed for his wit. That man could make you bend over backwards laughing even in his most challenging moments. In his spare time, he enjoyed boating and fishing with his friends and evenings on the beach watching the moonrise. He was a dedicated Patriots and Red Sox fan and appreciated a good meal, particularly his Sunday morning lobster omelets!
Richie loved his friends. He had that unique ability to draw multitudes of people and keep them. He was the point person, the guy who made everything happen. Whenever your got together with Rich he always had another place he was expected to be.
Besides his beloved mother, Barbara, Richard is survived by his long-time partner; Marlene Sevinor of Revere, loving siblings; Michael J. Scribner and his wife Colleen G. Scribner of Beverly and Paula M. Scribner of Gloucester. He was most proud of his two nephews; Michael Scribner and Jeremy Scribner, both of Malden.
His funeral mass will be celebrated in St. Joseph Church, 118 High Street, Medford on Friday, February 5, 2021, at 10 AM. Relatives and friends are most welcome to attend.
