Patrick J. Scully, 54

September 27, 2018

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Patrick J. Scully, 54, of Malden, Mass., passed away on September 27, 2018.

He was born on January 17, 1964, in Pittsfield, Mass., the son of Jerome J. and Joanne M. (Maunsell) Scully. He graduated from Lee High School in 1982 and received his bachelor's degree from the Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University in 1986.

Patrick worked for more than 23 years in communications, public relations, media and political consulting. His work included serving as Director of Communications and Media for the State Senate Democrats in the Connecticut General Assembly, and as a public relations specialist for Sullivan & LeShane in Hartford, Connecticut. He most recently worked as a political consultant, working on campaigns for numerous political candidates. He also wrote the very popular and witty blogs, The Hanging Shad and The Everett Stimulus, covering issues of political and human interest.

Patrick was a gifted athlete in his youth, excelling in soccer, baseball and especially hockey. He was an avid Boston sports fan and particularly loved going to the Garden to watch the Bruins play and to his beloved Fenway Park to catch a Red Sox game. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends and vacationing on Martha's Vineyard and listening to the music of his favorite band, Entrain. He had a wonderful sense of humor and could captivate a room by telling a good story.

He is survived by his parents, Jerome and Joanne of Lee; his brother, J. Michael Scully and his wife Jennifer of Wilbraham; his sister, Mary (Scully) Grimaldi and her husband James of Northborough; his loving nephews and nieces, Timothy and Nora Scully and Grace, James, and Gregory Grimaldi; his loving friend and companion Kelly Libby, and Kelly’s niece, Penny; and numerous cousins, other family, and friends.

Funeral notice: A Liturgy of Christian Burial will be held at St. Mary's Church, 140 Main Street, Lee, Mass., on Monday, October 8, 2018, at 10 a.m. Prior to the Mass, his family will greet friends from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. at the Kelly Funeral Home, 3 Main Street, Lee.

Burial will follow at the St. Mary’s Cemetery, Spring Street, Lee. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Patrick's name to St. Mary’s School, Lee, Massachusetts, care of the Kelly Funeral Home.
