Paul R. Shriver, fun-loving guy

February 13, 2024

Paul R. Shriver, 77, of Rehoboth Beach, passed away peacefully in his sleep Friday, Feb. 2, 2024. 

He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Carolyn (McKee) Shriver; his daughters, Kristin Hagan (Chris) and Becky Richardson; and the light of his life, his two grandchildren, Gretchen Hagan and Ryder Richardson. Paul is survived by his younger brother, Steve Shriver (Donna); his sister-in-law, Carolyn Ann Shriver; his sister-in-law, Kendra McKee; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and many friends from the DMV.  Paul is now reunited with his parents, Glenn K. Shriver Sr. and Eleanor (Cort) Shriver; his eldest daughter, Elizabeth; his older brother, Glenn K. Shriver Jr.; and his brother-in-law, Robert H. McKee. 

Paul grew up in Chevy Chase, Md., and attended Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, where he was a member of the wrestling and football teams, and continued playing football for one year at Randolph Macon College. He then followed his brother, Kenny, to Erskine College in South Carolina, where he started his early career in sales, which continued throughout his life even in retirement as he was the forever salesman. Paul and Carolyn met in Dewey Beach, so it seemed fitting they retired to Rehoboth 23 years ago.

Paul was actively involved in the Kings Creek HOA, and many civic and charitable organizations in the Rehoboth area. His favorite pastime was playing with his grandchildren. Paul also loved his time on the beach, playing golf with friends, and weekly poker games, while constantly obsessing over having an immaculate lawn. 

A Celebration of Life will be held privately at a later date.
