Hubert Joseph “Shine” Scully, 84, a resident of Bayou Vista, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 12, 2022 at his home, surrounded by his loving family.
Shine was born on May 14, 1937 in Morgan City, the son of John Scully and Noelie Delaune Scully.
Shine was a welder with McDermott for a few years until his love of the water and fishing came calling and he enjoyed a very successful career as a commercial fisherman. Family was extremely important to him and cherished every moment he spent with them. Shine was a great friend to many, always stopping to have a conversation with someone because he never met a stranger. He loved listening to his country and swamp pop music and was also known to cut a rug on the dance floor with a big smile on his face.
He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by four children, Judy McAdams, Karen Menard and husband Barry and Tammy Scully and companion David Crawford all of Bayou Vista, Tommy Scully and wife Melanie of Patterson; 17 grandchildren; 30 great grandchildren; 3 great-great grandchildren; one sister, Lee Anna “Dee Dee” Acosta of Stephensville; his great friends, Waldi, Richard, and Larry Dryer.
Shine was preceded in death by his parents; his wife of 62 years, Gertrude Gros Scully; one daughter, Sandra Matherne; one son-in-law, Leroy McAdams; two sisters, Audrey “Doot” Bailey and Nelda Daigle; three brothers, Yan Scully, Elwood Scully Sr. and Wade Scully.
