David F Scanlan passed away on Saturday May 9th, 2020 in his 81st year.

David enlisted in the United States Air Force where he developed his photography skills and won awards for his submissions in contests. He was also very involved in strength training during this time. His experience and skills in photography later led to his photographing weddings and further developing his passion for photography which, along with weightlifting and an interest in numismatics, remained dominant hobbies throughout his life. After his mother fell ill, and upon completing his service, David left the Air Force. Upon her passing, he travelled to Canada where he met his future wife, Lucille. He was a dedicated husband and father and spent his later years enjoying family vacations to his favorite spots in New Hampshire and Canada. His sense of humor provided many moments of hilarity and have left the family with plentiful stories to remember him by.
He was preceded in death by his father William Francis Scanlan III, Brothers James, Paul and Sister Mary Nickerson

He is survived by his loving wife Lucille (Jean) Scanlan and sons, David P Scanlan and wife, Caryn, of Bridgewater, MA, Jason R Scanlan and wife, Reina, of Plymouth, MA and Erik W Scanlan and wife, Jennifer, of Plymouth, MA, as well as eight grandchildren(Cayla, Matthew, Leanna, Andrea, Jonathan, Lana, Elijah And Mia) his sisters Marion Denise Scanlan SSJ, and Jean Elizabeth Scanlan SSJ both of Framingham, Sister–in-law Marion Scanlan and Many Nephews & nieces

It is with great sadness that we will not be able to schedule memorial services at this time, however a memorial event is anticipated at a later date.
