Edward B. Scruggs, 90, of Roanoke, passed away peacefully on
Friday, May 22, 2020.

Ed was born on April 6, 1930, to Gustavus & Mary Scruggs.
He was a graduate of Andrew Lewis High School in Salem. After
graduating high school, he went on to further his education and
earned a B.S. Degree from Virginia Tech, as well as his MBA
from the University of North Carolina. During his adult life, he
proudly served in the United States Airforce. He then went on to
have a successful career with Dominion Bank which is now
known as Wells Fargo and after many years of being a dedicated
employee, he retired as a Portfolio Manager.

It was no secret to anyone that Ed was a huge Virginia Tech fan!
In November of 2019, he received a surprise visit from former
Coach Frank Beamer. Brandon Oaks arranged this special visit
by selecting Ed as “The Star of the Day”. This program is where
the facility selects a resident and grants them a wish, ranging
from special activities or meals for a day. Coach Beamer
presented him with a signed football, as well as honored him in a

He is preceded in death by his loving wife of 55 years, Barbara
Ratliff Scruggs; parents, Gustavas and Mary Scruggs; as well as
his brothers, John and William Scruggs.

Left to cherish his memory is a sister-in-law, Connie Scruggs, as
well as a niece, Catharine Nye Scruggs.

A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, May 29,
2020 at Sherwood Memorial Park.

A special thank you to Brand Oaks for the exceptional care that
was provided to Ed. Also, to the Roanoke Valley Hokie Club for
working with Brandon Oaks to honor Ed as Star of The Day and
helping to make his surprise visit from Coach Beamer possible.

Thanks for the years of lending Mr Scruggs to us at Brandon Oaks. 'POPPEE' - as he would love to be called - was such a team-spirited man. When I cared for him, we always had to do things in a SPORTING EVENT nature. Ed had a passion for V-Tech! Yes, V-Tech was like his property, and he was the Security Guard to it! We'll miss Ed.

I’m sorry to hear of Ed’s passing. Ed and Barbara were lovely people and dear friends of my mom and dad, Lynn and Yvonne Slonaker. They traveled together and attended games at Virginia Tech where dad also graduated. My condolences to your family, Cathy Slonaker Philbin
