SCRUGGS, Steven N. February 9, 1950 November 6, 2017 Steven N. Scruggs was born in Taylor, Texas on February 9, 1950 to Hollis and Helen Werchan Scruggs. A lifelong resident of Taylor, he graduated Taylor High School in 1968 and Southwest Texas State in 1972 with a degree in Business-Marketing. When he was a young boy, he was proud to serve as a page boy for the Texas State House of Representatives in Austin. Upon college graduation, he worked at Block Distributing first as a salesman, and then as an Area Supervisor. Steven founded City Produce in Austin, San Antonio, Harlingen, and Corpus Christi and successfully grew his business over the years. City Produce was the pride of his life's work. Steven was a wonderful husband and father, a great "Pa" to his grandchildren, a loving brother and uncle, and a best friend to many. He loved all sports, especially the sporting events of his grandchildren and nieces and nephews. For decades, he attended the Texas High School State Basketball Championships, bringing friends and family along with him over the years. Steven enjoyed tennis, golfing, and any backyard sport he could play. He was very talented in tending his tropical flowers and his newly acquired love for cattle ranching.
