Richard Frank Scarabin Jr., 41, of Apalachicola, passed away Thursday, July 26, 2018 following a long battle of illness.

Mr. Scarabin was born in Port St. Joe. He loved the outdoors, fishing, hunting, archery, artifact hunting, collecting and searching for old coins and loved learning, as well as sharing the history of items he collected. He enjoyed every minute spent with family and friends and loved the job of the captain of his own charter fishing vessel.

Richard is survived by his parents, Richard F. Scarabin, Sr., of Apalachicola, and L. Darlene (Jonny) Knopp, of Wewahitchka; his son Kristian Scarabin of Apalachicola; brother Doug Scarabin, of Apalachicola; and sister Melissa (Sherman) Penrose, of Palm City.

A celebration of his life will be held at later date by family and friends.
