Dennis Scroggins, 67, passed away on February 27, 2021, from complications of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) with his children by his side. He was born in Sheboygan on May 25, 1953, to the late William and Audrey (Krueger) Scroggins. On June 1, 1974, Dennis married Nanette Lucynski. Together they raised their two children, Stacy and Dustin, in Sheboygan Falls. Nanette preceded him in death in 2001.
Dennis was a carpenter by trade. After working with his father for many years, Dennis started his own business. He was the proud owner of Dennis Scroggins Construction Co.
Before he retired in 2010, he was also a member of the Sheboygan Falls Auxiliary Police Department and served on the Sheboygan Falls Planning Commission.
Dennis was an excellent cook. He made his own sauerkraut that he enjoyed sharing with family and friends. He also dabbled in beekeeping. He especially loved putting a heaping spoonful of delicious honey into his morning hot chocolate. Dennis loved to spend time at his cabin on Post Lake where he enjoyed relaxing, fishing, hunting, and riding ATVs. Many special memories were made with family and friends at the lake.
Dennis is survived by his children, Stacy (David) Grusznski and Dustin Scroggins both of Sheboygan Falls; grandchildren, Isla and Finley; sisters, Kathy (Wayne) Kohl and Sue (Tom) Artabasy; sister-in-law, Cheryl (Mike) Tank; and brother-in-law, John (Beate) Lucynski. He is also survived by nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.
A private family service will be held for Dennis. He will be laid to rest at Greenlawn Memorial Park next to Nanette.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made in Dennis's name to the ALS Association of Wisconsin or to The Gathering Place at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Sheboygan Falls.
