Christopher Ryan Scoggins dies at 44
–Christopher Ryan Scoggins, 44, a United States Air Force Veteran, Firefighter Captain, and Red Iron MC Brother, was born in Grand Junction, Colorado, on July 02, 1973, and was taken from us on May 13, 2018. He was preceded in death by his brother, Captain Brian Scoggins, USAF. Chris is survived by his wife, Aimee (Searl) Scoggins; his mother Renata Scoggins; father James Scoggins; daughter Alexis; son, Logan; sister, Daneen; his aunt, Kim Csernay and her husband John Csernay, his aunts Cindy Aman, and Franca Longo; and many cousins, nieces, nephews, and family and friends in Italy and Australia.
He was an amazing husband, son, and father. He married the love of his life, Aimee Scoggins on August 13, 2016 and has two beautiful children, Alexis, age 21, and Logan, age 8. Chris was a happy active child that spent his childhood on the family Peach Orchard and was proud to say he learned to drive tractors at age 7. As a teenager, Chris moved to Paso Robles, California, where he attended Paso Robles High School. Chris was a Paso Robles Bearcat and lettered in Football and Track. After High School Chris joined the United States Air Force, where he proudly served his country as a Firefighter from 1992-1999. Continuing his love of firefighting, he moved to Arizona, where he enjoyed a seventeen-year career at the Barry M. Goldwater Auxiliary Range, and earned the rank of Captain.
Chris was an active, happy and social man who also loved riding his motorcycle, and was proud to become a Brother with Red Iron MC Maricopa County. We would be remiss if we didn’t mention his fierce loyalty to the Denver Broncos and his fun-loving dedication to being a Jimmy Buffet Parrothead.
A Celebration of Life will be on Saturday, May 26, 2018, at 10 a.m. at Christ’s Church of the Valley, 7007 W. Happy Valley Road, in Peoria Arizona.
