Christopher Ryan Scoggins
July 2, 1973 – May 13, 2018
SCOGGINS, Christopher Ryan, 44, a United States Air Force Veteran, Firefighter Captain, and Red Iron Motorcycle Club 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; mother Renata Scoggins; father James Scoggins; daughter Alexis; son, Logan; and sister, Daneen; his aunts, Kim Csernay and her husband John Csernay, 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, who 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 so proud to become a Brother in 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 held on Saturday May 26, 2018, at 10:00 AM at Christ’s Church of the Valley (CCV-Peoria), located at 7007 W. Happy Valley Road, in Peoria Arizona.

Thoughts are sent to Family, Friend's, and everyone who was fortunate to know Chris. He was a Great Friend (Brother) in and after his time spent serving our country. So Many Great Memories to mention (AF, and many Rendezvous), and I really wish that I was there for the Celebration of Life for Chris, but will unfortunately be in Florida w/other Friends who knew Chris really well. As he would for us, we shall reminisce about all our Great Times together and attempt to handle this tragidy. Sending Love to Chris's Family. Rest in Peace Brother, Love you!!

Aimee and Chris's love for each other was a treasure! Their kindness and friendship is always in my heart. I think the one thing that I will always remember about Chris was his laugh. He had a wonderful laugh and smile. My love and prayers are going out to the family.

To the family and friends of Chris:
I had the pleasure of working with Chris while a firefighter at Goldwater Range fire department. A true firefighter professional in every sense of the word. Always looking to assist any victim that was going through a difficult time. God bless.
