Robert Nicholas “Bob” Scrima, whether you called him “Bob”, “Bobby”, “Uncle Bob”, “Grandpa Bob” or “Mr. Scrima”, he was a force to be reckoned with for his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, cherished friends and a long list of clients throughout the years as a co-owner of both B&B Tax Service and R&R Insurance with his longtime partner, Bob Marino. Robert was born on January 1, 1943 in East Boston to Frank and Helen (Addario) Scrima and lived in East Boston. He was an Alumnus of Boston English High School and Suffolk University. He began his career as an accountant at P. Tavilla Co. in Chelsea before establishing his partnership with Bob Marino. He married the love of his life, Teresa (Catino) in 1966 and the couple lived in Revere. Robert was an active and long-standing member of the St. Anthony’s Church Holy Name Society and also served on the Revere Election Commission for many years. He was a loyal supporter and parishioner of St. Anthony’s Church in Revere and also served alongside his wife Teresa as a Eucharistic minister.

He is the beloved husband of 53 years to Teresa A. “Terry” (Catino). Cherished father of Frank Scrima & wife Andrea of Saugus & Maria E. Scrima of Revere. Dear brother of Anthony Scrima & wife Nancy of Everett. Also lovingly survived by his 2 grandchildren, Alexis & Zachary Scrima, both of Saugus & by his amazing “108” years young aunt Mary Ricci of East Boston. He is also lovingly survived by his nieces, nephews, cherished friends and former clients. The family will cherish memories of all the family dinners and get-togethers throughout the years, whether these were weddings, graduations, special occasions or championship sporting events. Bob’s fierce love of his family and friends, the music of his generation, client relationships and the fortunes of the Boston Red Sox will be fondly remembered by all that were fortunate enough to have known him. Always the first to lend a helping hand to those less fortunate, his watchful eyes will forever be upon us. The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses of Melrose Wakefield Hospital in Melrose and all the caregivers from Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of New England in Woburn and Oosterman Rest Homes in Melrose that provided compassionate care to him throughout his illness to the end.

    I first met Bob Scrima in the Fall of 1985. His son and I worked together and Mr. Scrima was nice enough to give me a ride home one night. That may not seem like a big deal, but I wasn’t driving yet and it would’ve been a long walk. As I got to know Frank and the rest of the family, I was always welcomed with opened arms into their home. I got used to Bob referring to me as “Brian Dennehy”, which I’ll miss but always remember fondly. Sometimes before school, my son and I would see Bob at the convenience store across the street. What an honor to introduce my boy Nicholas to Bob! Whenever I saw him, Mr. Scrima was always nice, caring, warm and generous. It’s a characteristic that shows in the rest of his family. I am proud and honored to have known you, Mr. Scrima. God Bless you, sir, may you Rest In Peace.

    I was so deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our cousin Bob Scrima. I will never forget the many wonderful traits he possessed. Whenever I was in his company during family get togethers and events, he was always fun to be around with his wonderful sense of humor and his outlook on life. I know that he will be dearly missed by family and friends but I know that his spirit will live on forever. I know he is not with us in the present but I know that he is gone to a greater place and will absolutely be in his glory. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Terry, Maria, Frank, Andrea, Zachary, and Alexis.
    God Bless,
    Jim, Margie, and Christopher
