A son of the late George Gilbert and Julia Rebecca (Wharton) Dugan, Jerry was born December 31, 1937 in New Philadelphia.

On December 29, 1956, Jerry married Mary Elizabeth Evans and together built their home, raised their family, and enjoyed trips with one another until Mary’s passing on May 20, 2016. Jerry was a longtime member of the New Philadelphia Church of Christ and was a longtime Angus Beef Farmer. Jerry retired from the former Edwards Sales and Service at Strasburg, where he worked for 29 years as a truck driver.
