Kenneth Scruggs Sr.

August 8, 1960May 29, 2020

Graniteville, SC - Mr. Kenneth Scruggs Sr., 59, went home to be with the Lord on Friday, May 29, 2020. Kenneth was preceded in death by his parents, William and Eddie Mae Scruggs.

He is survived by his loving wife, Dedra A. Scruggs; sons Kenneth Samuel Scruggs Jr., Michael Phillip Scruggs, Matthew Stephen Scruggs, and Samuel Devon Bussey; siblings Vida Elsayed, Susan Cruze, William “Bill” Scruggs, and John Scruggs (wife Angelina); Ken’s fur baby Jacob; many nieces and nephews and extended family, and Goddaughter Katie Hopkins- who was like a daughter to Ken.

Anyone who knew Ken knew he loved to cook. He loved to BBQ, fry fish, and make homemade cheesecakes among many things. He loved to work in his garden. But, Ken’s first love besides myself as his wife was knowing the Lord. Ken put God above everything. Every time we went out, he would ask people if they knew Jesus and if they didn’t, he offered to show them how to know the Lord as their personal savior right there. He would always say you can get Him now. Any time something needed done at the church and he was able, he was ready to help despite having many health challenges; he never let it stop him. That is why many never knew that anything was ever wrong with him because he never complained, and he always fought until the very end. He will be truly missed but I know where he is, and I know that we will be together very soon. I will always love you Kenneth Scruggs for showing me what a Godly husband really is. I was privileged to see Jesus in you, and your fruit was sweet. I could not have asked for a better husband.
