John F. Scully

John F. Scully, age 78 was born in Beverly, Massachusetts and passed away after a short illness. John married Shirley Talbert in September 1982. He was a wonderful, thoughtful father, husband, and an exceptional son-in-law. His mother-in-law Ethel Neal, who recently preceded John in death, was well taken care of by him. He resided in West Seattle for more than 30 years. John sailed for 43 years into various ports around the world as a merchant seaman. The last 15 he employed by Sea Land. His joy after retirement was building model ships which he designed on his own and others he created after looking at a picture. John was a master at fixing broken things and doing projects.

He is survived by his wife Shirley, his step-children; Joy Webb, Glenda Sturdivant (Barrett), Connie Irons, Nancy Voorhees, Scott and Kimberly Houde; twelve grandchildren; and numerous great grandchildren. In lieu of flowers please send donations to Swedish Home Health Care.
