James H. Scoggins, 86, of Cleveland, Tennessee, passed away on November 21, 2021.

He was the son of the late James Charlie and Rosa Scoggins. Siblings preceding him in death were brothers Bob Scoggins of Chattanooga, Kenneth Scoggins of New York, and Troy and Michael Scoggins, both of Cleveland.

Jim grew up in Chattanooga, graduating from Kirkman High School in 1953, where he was voted “Most Athletic” his senior year. He was a 20-year veteran of the United States Air Force, retiring in 1974 as MSgt. His military field of study was general munitions and nuclear weapons. Besides being stationed in Colorado, Massachusetts, South Carolina, and California stateside, his military career took him to England and the Azores before settling in Cleveland upon retirement. His second career of 20 years was with Duracell, retiring in 1997 after completing a tour in China as the facility manager for a Duracell factory build.

In his “genuine” retirement years, he enjoyed playing golf and even established his own yearly tournament for family and friends played at Goose Pond Colony Resort in Scottsboro, Al.

Most of all, he enjoyed time spent with his ever-growing family.  He will be missed by his spouse of 46 years, Sarah, and his four sons, James Edward (Patty), Richard (Pam), Steve (Candy), and Brian (Kelly.) He also leaves behind Dee Holtsclaw (Cyndi) of New York City and nine grandchildren: Rachel Martin (Edward) of Nashville, Tyler Marcrom (Brandi), Myka Scoggins, Bethany Holtsclaw Souza (Robert), James Edward Bowen-Jeb Scoggins (Olivia), Madeline Garcia (Troy), Jenna Scoggins (fiancé of Cory Billingsley) and Grant Scoggins all of Cleveland. Also, Erik Holtsclaw of New York City and six (soon to be eight) great-grandchildren.  He is also survived by brothers, Don Scoggins of Nashville and Bruce Scoggins of Murfreesboro; sisters Phyllis Dale and Glenda Black (Ricky) of Cleveland.

The family will hold a private graveside service at the Chattanooga National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Cleveland Salvation Army.
