He was most proud of his children and grandchildren. His son “Doug” had Melvin’s same sense of humor and they loved great food and picking on everyone. They shared a contagious laugh that lit up the entire room. “Debbie” lit up his life and was always his “little girl”. He loved how she cared for her family. Jeff was his strength. They loved to watch football together and pick on each other. He was preceded in death by his son Melvin (Doug) Guy Dugger, Jr; parents, James Bruce Dugger and Dorothy Alice Critchfield; and brother James Dugger, Jr.
Melvin was survived by his beloved wife Nancy Lee Dugger; daughter-in-law, Tina Dugger, daughter, Deborah Lee King (and Rick King), son Jeffery Brown Dugger (and Crystal Dugger); and grandchildren, great grandchildren nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
