Deceased Name: Charles C. Scroggin

SCROGGIN, CHARLES C., 72, died in his sleep on April 18, 2009 in Miami, Florida. Charlie was born November 12, 1936 and grew up in the farming communities of eastern Oregon. He was married to Suzanne Kinnel in 1956. Although he seemed destined to become a farmer, Charlie developed an early interest in aviation and became a licensed pilot. Following an apprenticeship flying small, propeller-driven charter aircraft, Charlie was hired by Pan American World Airways in 1966, where he began flying large, four-engine jets on Pan Am's worldwide routes. He was later selected as an instructor pilot and Check Pilot on both the Boeing 707 and the Boeing 747. When Pan Am sold its Pacific Routes to United Airlines, Charlie transferred to United and served as lead Captain and Check Pilot in United's transition to their newest Boeing aircraft, the 747-400. In that role he conducted the proving flights for United's ultra-long range flights from Los Angeles to Sydney, Australia. Charlie was a member of ParkOptimist, the support group for Parkinson Disease, from which he suffered during the last years of his life. Charlie is survived by his children, Jann S. Ruffo & Jeff Scroggin, his daughter-in-law, Kathy Scroggin, his grandchildren, Monica, Christina & Alexandra Scroggin, his sisters, Marilyn S. Brown & Jeanne S. Gilstrap, and his many devoted friends from coast to coast. He was preceded in death by his wife Sue in 1999, by his parents, and by his friend of more than three decades, "Bill."

Megan’s Law violation

State police at Towanda said that charges against Danny Lee Scroggins, 25, of Sayre, were filed at the office of Magisterial District Justice Michael Shaw in March, charging him with three counts of failure to comply with registration of sexual offender requirements, a felony of the third degree.

Police said that Scroggins is accused of failing to verify his address with the Pennsylvania State Police as required in January 2008 and January 2009. It is also alleged that Scroggins failed to notify state police that he was leaving the commonwealth when he moved to Texas, police said.

Scroggins was apprehended on March 10 in Texas after an investigation of his whereabouts by the Pennsylvania State Police Fugitive Task Force and the U.S. Marshal’s Service, police said, and extradited back to Pennsylvania to answer to the charges.

Scroggins waived his right to a preliminary hearing, originally scheduled for April 7 at Shaw’s office, police said.

The case was transferred to the Bradford County Court of Common Pleas for further court action, police said.
