OBITUARY: Michael C. Scroggins, 1951-2017

Michael C. Scroggins, loving life partner of Linda Arnold, entered into peace on March 11, 2017 in Eureka. He was born on May 6, 1951 in Reno, Nevada.

Michael and his son Michael came to Eureka in 2003 to establish his business “Our Own Chemical,” servicing business clients from Crescent City to Santa Rosa, with Linda by his side with her own pink tools. They could always be seen driving his big white van with the Foghorn Chicken on the back. Over the years Michael was a member of numerous organizations – Eureka Elks Lodge PER, Shriners International, Masons, Blue Lodge, and DeMolay International. His favorite pastime, every chance he could get, was camping, driving his Green 1994 C-4 Corvette.

Michael is survived by his loving, caring soulmate Linda “Woo,” as he always called her. Daughters: Happiness Hall and Ettie Bailey. Son: Michael J Scroggins. Grandchildren: Joshua and Katlin Hall, Kaia Bailey and Matthew Scroggins. He is also survived by his extended family Johnie and Bryan Sims, who loved Michael very much, Kylie Sullivan ( Bright Eyes) Colt and Adia Sims. All of which Michael loved and adored and his Shih Tzu companions Rusty and Molly. Michael was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Velma Scroggins of Oroville.

Michael touched the lives of so many people with his smile and generosity and maintained his sense of humor all the way to the end. Those we love never truly leave us. They are always by our side and will be in our hearts forever.
