Roy C. Schriever was a dedicated volunteer firefighter for 45 years and recently lost an 8 week long battle with COVID-19. Having spent a significant amount of time with the Denville Volunteer Fire Department, Roy was remembered this morning in a long procession from different agencies in the region on Broadway in Denville.

Gone Fishin’

I’ve finished life’s chores assigned to me,
So put me on a boat headed out to sea.
Please send along my fishing pole
For I’ve been invited to the fishin’ hole.

Where every day is a day to fish,
To fill your heart with every wish.
Don’t worry, or feel sad for me,
I’m fishin’ with the Master of the sea.

We will miss each other for awhile,
But you will come and bring your smile.
That won’t be long you will see,
Till we’re together you and me.

To all of those that think of me,
Be happy as I go out to sea.
If others wonder why I’m missin’
Just tell ’em I’ve gone fishin’
