Timothy H. Scriven, 28


Arlington, VA — Timothy "Tim" Hoar Scriven, 28, former a Beverly, Mass., resident, died July 21, 2013, in San Diego, Calif., where he had been on business.

Tim was born October 4, 1984, in Danvers, Mass., to Robert Louis Scriven and Mary Ellen Hoar.

As a child he loved playing, and excelled at numerous sports, especially hockey and lacrosse. He loved playing these games both on organized teams and even more so in the front yard with his brother, cousins and friends.

He attended Beverly High School and graduated with an associate degree from North Shore Community College.

He met his lovely wife, Tierney, while she was in college at James Madison University, and moved down to the Washington, D.C., area shortly after she graduated so that they could start a life together. Over the ensuing years in D.C., Tim achieved an amazing level of success and fulfillment in both his personal and professional lives. Since 2008, when he began work as an intern, Tim had established a great career for himself at ThinkGeek.com, ultimately working his way to the role of sales executive. On April 6, 2013, his wife, Tierney, gave birth to a beautiful daughter, Marie Bay. Tim loved and was devoted to the two of them with every shred of his being.

Tim had an enthusiastic and exuberant personality. He loved life and lived it to its fullest. He was generous and kind to a fault. He loved his family and friends, and always let them know it.

He is survived by his wife, Tierney, and daughter, Marie Bay; his parents, Robert Scriven and Mary Hoar; his brother, Matt Scriven; sister-in-law, Laura Schifter, and niece, Eleanor Abigail Scriven, sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Erin and Drew Coleman, and their children, Savannah, Aidan and Layla, brothers-in-law, Paul, Brian and Michael Veith; parents-in-law, Sharon and Paul Veith; as well as countless other relatives and friends. He was well loved and will be missed by many.
