Obituary of Gary Edward Dugan
NEW IBERIA- Gary Edward Dugan, age 56, passed away on Wednesday, August 4, 2021 at his residence. Memorial services will be held at a later date. Gary was born in New Iberia on November 16, 1964 to the late Lenox Jr. and Georgia Pryor Dugan. He was a kind and caring man who dedicated his time and efforts to helping those in tough situations. Affectionately called the “BBQ Man”, Gary was perhaps best known for his cooking. During the devastating floods in Texas, Gary volunteered for countless hours to bring BBQ and meals to the people who were displaced. He never stopped helping and went so far as to organize several fundraisers. Gary worked as a truck driver and his truck was leased to United Vision Logistics for thirteen years and just this past year it was leased to Team One Logistics. His favorite pastimes were barbequing for others, competing in cook-offs, fishing, and spending time with family and friends. He loved his dogs, Abby and Jake, and loved his granddaughter, Zoe, more than anything in the world. This year he would have celebrated his 10th wedding anniversary with his loving wife, Geraldine. A loving husband, step-father, grandfather, brother, and friend to all, Gary will be truly and deeply missed by all those who knew and loved him. He leaves behind to cherish his memory, loving wife, Geraldine Romero Dugan; step-sons, Seth Fruge (Leah) and Stephen Fruge; brothers, Randall Dugan, Sr., Jeff Dugan (Sherry), and George Dugan (Barbara); and granddaughter, Zoe Noelle Fruge. He is preceded in death by his parents. To view the on-line obituary and sign the guest register, please visit Evangeline Funeral Home of New Iberia is in charge of arrangements.
