SOUTH PARIS — Don J. Scribner, 59, of South Paris, passed away peacefully at his daughter and son-in-law’s home on Sunday, Sept. 3, with his family by his side after a short battle with cancer.
Don was born on Oct. 31, 1957, to Leslie and Kathleen Scribner. He was one of nine children. He attended local schools. Don worked at local factories, Wilner Wood Products, Cornwall’s and Paris Manufacturing, later on becoming a truck driver over the road and then for paving compaines.
Don was an avid outdoorsman, fishing and hunting with his brothers and friends through the years. He always looked forward to the evening rides he would take with his mother and his dog, Toby looking for deer and other animals. He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, fishing, going to camp, sitting by the fire or going to one of the grandkids’ many sporting events.
Don was recently able to watch his grandson, Ryan, hit his first home run ball and his granddaughter, Haley, graduate the eighth grade.
Don is survived by his daughter, Jessica and her husband, Rocky Cotton; his grandchildren, Haley Scribner, Mariah, Ryan and Hunter Cotton, all of Norway; a son, Jason Brown of Harrison; his mother, Kathleen Scribner of South Paris; his siblings, Bernard Scribner and his companion, Jacqui O’Brian of South Paris, Cindy Scribner NP and her husband, Dr. Larry Hopperstead of Lewiston, Roger Scribner and his wife, Rhonda of Sumner, Carol (Scribner) Hall and her husband, Neil of Magalloway Plantation, Cathy Scribner of Casco, Brian Scribner and his wife, Sharon of West Paris and Patty Scribner of Skowhegan; many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and friends; and his beloved dog, Toby; a few special friends, Nancy Foster and Jessica Ritchie.
He is predeceased by his father, Leslie; one brother, Leslie; a niece, Amanda Scribner; and his grandparents, George and Frances Hammond.
The family would like to thank Androscoggin Hospice and all the nurses for all they did to keep Don comfortable at the end.
