Hello my name is Kacey and I am the oldest grandchild of Alan and Janie.Being 30 a lot of people have come up to me and have said, “You know you are the perfect age and go to spend the perfect amount of time with your Papaw.” He did get to see me grow up, graduate high school, graduate college, get married, and start a family of my own. But to me the perfect amount of time doesn’t exist because to me the time I got to spend with him was precious and memorable. From baking him cookies all the time when I was little, going with him to church most Sundays, to making him play Mancala with me on a snow day home from school so many times that we figured out the strategy of the game and knew whoever got to go first was going to win and most of the time he let me go first. Him and Memaw have taken me on SEVERAL vacations and the laughs we got to share I will never forget. One time when they took me to Washington DC and we were standing in front of the Washington Memorial I was having a moment and said “You would think they would have something here dedicated to George Washington” he started laughing and said “Look in front of you.” Another time he was trying to play a joke on Memaw and I so he kind of ran up ahead of us and was planning to hide behind a wall and jump out from behind it and scare us as we passed. It turns out the joke was on him because as Memaw and I turned the corner all we could see of Papaw was his belly sticking out from behind the wall. They took me my first time visiting San Antonio and on that trip Uncle Tom came. We got there a day before Uncle Tom though so at dinner that night Papaw was sure to inform me that any dinners after that if he was paying we could have burgers BUT if uncle Tom was paying we were to eat steak.

Alan, you are truly loved and missed. God-father to my daughter, my friend and my brother. I am so grateful for the 25+ years that I was able to be apart of your family. I will cherish all the laughs and memories and will continue to be by Janie's side. Rest well dear friend. Love you, Tricia.

Brother, what can I say.. You were my brother by choice. You were always honest and straightforward with me even if I didn’t like the answer. You have always been such a caring and giving man. And you’ve always been my sisters rock even when she didn’t think she needed one. You, my brother, have always and will always be a part of this family and in my heart. You leaving us will be leave a void in our family but you will never be forgotten. But I’m so thankful that you’re with your son Tom and my dad and you don’t have to struggle to breathe anymore. Rest assured that I’ll be here to help my sister and Tooties get thru this. I’m going to miss you very much. You could be a butt, although most of the time you were right. Please tell my dad and Tom that I love them along with you and one day I’ll see all of you again. I love you brother.

My dear Honey Bear, I miss you so so much!! You are the one love of my life. I don’t know what to do without you! At night I keep looking to see if you are in the bed, I look to see if you are coming down the hall, I still wait for you in the car! I still look to see if you are walking behind me.... but you are not there. My heart is so lonely! I can still see your face. I can hear you talking. Thank you for the wonderful life you have given me. You filled our home with love. I will miss you with every breath I take.! I love you with all my heart and sole!!❤️

I met Alan 42 years ago when he married my Sister Janie. I immediately liked him. He had a serious side but at the same time a comical one as well. He has always been an excellent husband, father and brother-in-law. I remember him always being conscientious of others and their needs. He and Janie have taken Mom and Dad on many vacations, when they returned, all Mom and Dad could talk about was the way Alan took care of them selflessly. Alan had the privilege of working with son, Alan Jr. for years and enjoyed every minute of it. I truly offer my and Linda's deepest condolences to Janie, Alan Jr. and Kelly and family.
Alan Dugger was a fine man, loved his family and never had a lazy bone in his body!
Love you Alan, see you again some day!

Allan was a "One of a Kind"! Thoughtful, caring, generous, & loving. I've known him for most of my adult life. He was one of only a few that I can't think of a negative thing to say about. He almost single-handedly build a church in Azle. It was a true work of art. Easy going, good hearted, and had a contagious laugh. He took excellent care of my sister, nephews, & nieces! He left a legacy that any of us would be proud to claim! He will be missed. My dad (Bill) and my Nephew (Tom) preceded him to Heaven so I'm sure that all three are finally Livin' it up under Jesus' watchful & rewarding eye! He will be missed & I'm anxiously awaiting the chance to see them again. Praise God for his life & influence!
