Douglas “Blake” Scriber of Neversink passed away on Friday, February 1, 2019 at home with his wife by his side. He was 73.
He was the son of the late LeRoy and Mable Gorr Scriber, born on September 3, 1945 in Monticello, NY.

Blake was an avid outdoors man who loved fishing and hunting. He was known for having a green thumb and loved planting flowers and growing his own vegetables. He was always a kind and compassionate person to his neighbors and all of his friends. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to someone in need.
