(Updated 17 May 2014).
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 [53224:K], his daughter-in-law, Kathy Scroggin [53217:K, fb], his grandchildren, Monica [53220:K, fb], Christina [53219:K, fb] & Alexandra Scroggin [53218:K, fb], his sisters, Marilyn S. Brown [4804:K] & Jeanne S. Gilstrap [4805:K], 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."
