Richard Scroggins

May 24, 1951 — October 11, 2019

Richard J. Scroggins, 68, of Cleveland, passed away October 11, 2019 at home surrounded by his loving family after a six-year battle with cancer.

Rick was born May 24, 1951 in Manitowoc to the late Richard Byrd and Shirley (Turek) Scroggins. He graduated from Lincoln High School with the class of 1969 and began his career at Rummele Jewelers in 1975. He was mentored by Jack Westerhof (owner) and studied to become a Registered Jeweler and Certified Gemologist. He then became the manager of Garrison Jewelers, in Sheboygan, before purchasing the business in 1990 and changing the name to Scroggins Jewelers. He has proudly operated the business under our family name for the past 29 years.

He was deeply devoted to his wife, children, friends, customers and community. He married the former Lynn Morrow on October 6, 1973 at Wesley Methodist Church. In 2010, his son Mac married Tiffany Aaland bringing another love to our lives. We are extremely grateful to our friends who were by his side offering support and love throughout his life.

He was a member of the Cleveland Fish and Game, American Gem Society, Gemological Institute of America and served as a member of the Sheboygan Business Improvement District. He was an outdoor enthusiast, craftsman and master cribbage player. He was a YMCA member where he spent enjoyable time playing water volleyball and handball. He was a curious minded adventurer with an appreciation for history and one of his fondest memories was his trip to Alaska with his sons in July, 2018.

Rick is survived by his loving wife Lynn (Honeymouse) of 46 years, son McGuire Scroggins (Tiffany) of Golden, CO, son Chad Scroggins of Lakewood, CO, brother, David Scroggins of Kiel and his feline friend Reggie.
