December 2, 1940 — April 27, 2023

David Chester Scoggins of Statesboro, GA passed away on April 27, 2023 after a life well-lived. He was 82 years old, a devoted husband, selfless father and grandfather, and a hard-working businessman with a love for golf.

Chester was born on December 2, 1940 to Daniel and Ola Mae Scoggins of DeKalb County, GA. Preceded in death by his brothers McKee and Alton and sister Katherine Gentry. He is survived by his loving and spirited wife Maxine (Joyner) of 53 years; their children Dinah Wallace (Robert), Tammy Ake (Jeff), Greg Scoggins(Teresa), Tammy Wilson (Clyde).  Forever cherished by his grandchildren Bobby Wallace (Danielle), Paige Crowe (Jake), Amy Ake, Scott Ake, Courtney Timmerman (Fuller), Skyler Wallace,  Kasey Anderson (Mark), Dalton Scoggins, Alexis Scoggins. Remembered and honored by 11 great grandchildren. His memory lives on with many nieces, nephews and extended family.

Prior to his decades of devotion to his family and career successes, Chester graduated from Avondale High School.  He then worked his way up the corporate ladder of the printing industry from mailroom clerk to Vice President of Steven’s Graphics Inc. Chester retired early to Ormond Beach, FL. where he enjoyed watching golf, talking politics, mowing the lawn, and making home repairs with his duct tape.  He was an avid golfer, even awarded the opportunity to play golf at the Augusta National. Later he settled in Statesboro, GA where he has continued to love small, precious moments traveling in his motorhome, spending time with his family, and caring for his wife Maxine. Chester’s son, Greg notes his dad’s ability to “come through like a champ if you needed him,” stating, “What more could a kid ask for.” And the truth is, his family and friends were blessed to know, to love, and to be loved by him.
