Bryan A. Scribner, 81

Bryan A. Scribner, 81, died peacefully Saturday, Dec. 4, 2010, at the Vermont Veterans Home in Bennington, Vt.

Bryan was born in Poultney, Vt., on May 24, 1929, the son of Bryan W. and Alice (Ballard ) Scribner. His family moved many times during school years, coming to Tinmouth, Vt., in 1944. In 1956 after serving two years in the U.S. Army, he joined New England Telephone in Manchester where he retired after 30 years of service.

Bryan was devoted to his family, spending time camping, hunting, fishing, at horse shows and with the Boy Scouts. Later he became a charter member of the first chapter in Vermont of the Good Sam Hunting Club and Gold Wing Road Riders and one of the first members of Manchester Rescue Squad. He also was an officer in several snowmobile clubs and enjoyed bluegrass festivals and motorcycle riding. All of these he shared with his best friend and wife, Joyce, of 57 years, whom he married in August 1953. Carpentry was a second career and Bryan’s passion, from which the family enjoys many pieces of his work.

Bryan is survived by his wife, the former Joyce Cone, of Manchester Center; his son, David Scribner and his wife, Donna, of Tinmouth, Vt.; his daughter, Susan Salo and her husband, Peter, of Bondville, Vt.; his grandchildren, Michael, Robert, Scott, Julie and Jamie; two great-grandchildren, Nate and Ellie; his brother, Raymond Scribner and his wife, Mary Ann, of West Pawlet, Vt.; and his sister, Charlotte Combs of Wells, Vt.

Graveside funeral services for Bryan will be held Wednesday afternoon Dec. 8, at 1 p.m. in the family lot in Wells Village Cemetery in Wells, Vt. Visiting hours will be held Tuesday evening at Brewster Funeral Service, 34 Park Place, Manchester Center, Vt., from 4 to 7 p.m. when the family will be in attendance.

If friends desire, memorial gifts in Bryan’s memory may be made to the Manchester Rescue Squad, Manchester Fire Department or Manchester Health Services in care of Brewster Funeral Service, P.O. Box 885, Manchester Center, Vt. 05255.
