Obituary of James Earl Scruggs

James Earl Scruggs, 71, of Indianapolis passed away on April 26, 2019. James was born in Russellville, K.Y. to James and Alta (Baskerville) Scruggs on August 24, 1947.

Jim had three loves in his life. His first love was God, he loved going to church and learning more about God’s word and end time prophecy.  His second love was his family. His family was his world, he would do anything for them. Jim loved spending quality time with each person in his family. Jim and his wife, Carolyn, spent a lot of time in the company of their children and grandchildren. Jim’s final love was his guns. He dearly loved to buy and sell guns, target shooting, and working on his guns to keep them in pristine shape.

Jim was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Stephen Wayne and Michael Lee Scruggs; and his sister, Shirley Marie.
