|Alvin Dugger|| |
Pepaw was an avid football and basketball fan who could be heard above all the crowds. He loved motivating his children and grandchildren to play their hardest and be their best in any sporting event and in their lives.
He also enjoyed working, gardening and fellowshipping. He was a gifted carpenter and handyman and he built many homes in central Arkansas over the years. He taught his family the importance of commitment, dedication and giving 100% at every task. He was a member of the Carpenter’s Union and worked until he physically was not able. Gardening was one of his favorite hobbies and he enjoyed planting, harvesting and eating the fresh fruits and vegetables. Although his bride was the expert cook, over the years he became acclimated to the kitchen and boasted to prepare the best turkey and dressing.
He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Evelyn Jean Dugger; four sons, John Dugger and wife, Linda, Gary Dugger, Tim Dugger, and Mark Dugger and wife, Terri, all of North Little Rock; seven grandchildren, Kevin Dugger, Kristin Melton and husband, Van, Ron Dugger, Jon Dugger, Ashley Miller, Dylan and Hannah Dugger; three great-grandchildren, Garet Melton, Savana Melton, and Abbi Miller.
