BANGOR – Donald A. Scripture, 97, died peacefully August 9, 2017, surrounded by his loving family. He was born June 18, 1920, in Bangor, the son of Alfred W. and Margaret (MacKay) Scripture.

Donald graduated from Bangor High School, then shortly after, joined the Army in 1941 during World War II. He served his country until the war ended in 1945, serving a total of 4 ½ years. Donald married his sweetheart, Jean, after returning from the war on September 28, 1945. He joined the Bangor Fire Department where he worked for 28 years. After retiring, he worked for the State of Maine as a Fire Marshall for many years. After retiring permanently, Donald and Jean spent several winters in Florida.

Donald enjoyed sitting on the porch after dinner, where he would visit with family and friends. He enjoyed telling stories of the war and family stories when he was a young boy. Donald was a kind and loving man who was always willing to help in a time of need.

In addition to his parents, he is predeceased by his wife of 57 years, Jean Scripture; a daughter, Margaret Scripture; sisters, Marion Giberson, Alice Bell, and Janet Sweet; brothers, Kenneth Scripture, Alfred Scripture Jr., and James Scripture; and a step-mother, Florence Scripture.
