  8. My Uncle Ted was a man of integrity. One of those rare individuals who not only talked the talk, but also walked the walk. He was a faithful servant of the Lord Jesus Christ and his whole life was a witness and a testimony. He was a living example of the Word in Titus, Chapter 2, he was “temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance.” And, in everything he set an “example by doing what is good”; in his teaching he showed “integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned…” I am very blessed to be his niece and have such a wonderful, strong Christian role model for me and my children. He always made me feel very loved and valued. The sound of his voice was always calming and comforting to me and I loved to hear him talk about the Lord and sing. I will miss him very much.

  9. Barbara, I’m so very sorry to hear about Ted’s passing. My heart breaks with yours. Praying Our Lord carry you through these most difficult days. Sending hugs & my love.

  10. Ted Scroggs was a wonderful man, father, husband, grandfather, great grandfather, son, brother, uncle and most of all Christian and many other things along with my friend. I will see you later, my friend. May God richly bless the memory of Ted Norman Scroggs!!!
