It is with heavy hearts, that we have to announce, that Bob Scogin, long time resident of Elgin Texas, Son of Raymond L. Scogin and Juanita L. (Campbell) born on 02/02/1952 in Nacogdoches Texas, has passed away last Thursday in the late evening hours. Bob was a devoted Father, Grandfather, Uncle and best friend to who knew him.
He is survived by his oldest son Bobby Scogin (with fiance Ute Newcomb) with grandchild Lily; his daughter Sarah (and husband Jamie) with grandchildren Jonathon, Aubrey and Avery; middle son William Howard (with wife Megan) with grandchildren Jocelyn, Mason and Rylan; and his youngest son Clay (with girlfriend Ashley). He was one of 9 children, his siblings were Richard W. Scogin (passed away); David R. Scogin (passed away) with wife Patsy (living); Ronald J. Scogin; Mary F. Overli Donald (passed away); John R. Scogin (with wife Chris); Loucella K. Solis (with husband Ernie); Tammy S. Sabin (with husband David); and Ruthie A. Scogin.
Bob was loved by so many, he was a real Texas grown. Hard working, true Native spirit and never turned away from someone in need. He was an amazing father, brother, grandfather, teacher and friend to whom knew him. He was the kind of man you could go to in every moment of need, knowing he would be there for you.
He was a true family man and his pride were his 4 children. They were his life, his pride and joy. Until his last breath, his children were all he could think about even in his last moments, he would only talk and worry about them.
He had nothing but love for his siblings and his stories would show that. Just a beautiful man with a strong true Texas history.
He had friends everywhere, but his best friend was his long time friend “Max” the lab. They both were a “true love affair”. You will be so missed. We love you and our heavy hearts will be with us for a long time. Eventually it will get a little easier, and our love for you will never go away. You will always be in our hearts!
We also wish to extend our gratitude to his ex wife Beverly Scogin of Cat Spring, Texas who stayed very close friends with him throughout the years and is a walking angel among us, as she took him in and cared for him until his last moments. We will never be able to repay your grace and selfless work you have shown Dad and us, and thank you is just not enough.
We love you dad, we will miss you and not one day will go by where you are not in our hearts, prayers and everyday lives. Thank you for all you have taught us, as we are now better fathers/mothers and husbands/wives because of you.
