Paul Schrieber
06/30/1966 - 11/12/2020
Paul Warren Schrieber was born in Eugene Oregon to Harry and Beverly Schrieber. Paul died at the age of 54 from a brain hemorrhage, after a last visit by his brother and sister. Paul grew up in Eugene and was involved in baseball for most of his life, all thru school and two colleges. With a suggestion of his mother, Paul followed his father's footsteps to become a baseball umpire. He worked the in the minor leagues from 1990 – 1997, and the major leagues from 1998 – 2015. He officiated several playoff games and two All Star games. He had a fabulous career, which he loved. Paul met Allison Kersey in Clearwater FL. They were married in 1994 and their first home was in Louisville KY, later settling in Scottsdale AZ. They had two boys, Jack and Kevin, now 17 and 15, whom they continued to co-parent together even after divorcing in 2014. He loved them completely and they are his legacy to be very proud of. Paul always loved to share his gift of the MLB with family and friends in the USA and Canada, treating so many with tours of stadiums and on the field pregame. Paul gave back to others thru UMP CARE and the Make-A-Wish foundations. He was an avid Oregon Duck fan. Paul was a loving husband, father, son, brother, cousin, and uncle to so many that loved him equally. Paul was preceded in death by his mother Beverly Schrieber and father Harry Schrieber. Paul is survived by his two sons Jack and Kevin Schrieber, their mother Allison Schrieber, sister Brenda Crownover, brother Bill Schrieber and their spouses, nieces Jillian Edge, Jena Schrieber and nephew Mitchell Crownover, and many loving cousins. We will celebrate his life privately until we can gather again. In lieu of flowers please donate to the Alzheimer's Association.

To Paul's family, I am very saddened to hear of your loss. Paul and I were umpire partners in the Northwest League during the 1990 season - his rookie year in baseball. He was a great athlete and a natural umpire. What made our crew click was that he we were both extremely hard workers on and off the field. Paul pushed me to be better and work even harder! Case in point: We had a doubleheader in Bend, Oregon that was paid in very hot weather. Despite this, Paul thought it would be a great idea to go for a 5-mile late afternoon run. I did not share this sentiment, but would not relent and allow him to outwork me. We went for the run, and later beers. Sadly, I never got a chance to see him or talk to him during his MLB career. I have always been extremely proud of him for going all the way to the majors. He passed way too young. Please accept my condolences. I thought I would take a moment to note the impact he had on my life and, undoubtedly, countless others.

I have wonderful memories of my nephew from the early days in Eugene. He was a happy boy and Harry and Bev loved him dearly. My condolences to Bill and Brenda.
