Mr. Dugan served his country with honor and pride for 9 years in the United States Navy during the Vietnam conflict, where he was a trouble shooter. He was a lifelong member of the National Rifle Association, Gun Owners of America, Second Amendment Foundation, and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Larry was also a member of the Salem Bowling League and Lions Club. He worked as a First Class Mechanic for Burlington Northern Railroad. He later shared his building skills as a carpenter. He knew his way around a computer and was the person to call on if you had any questions. He even made computer games for grateful customers to enjoy. Larry was creative and enjoyed creating with his wood working. He will be remembered as a man that was highly prepared for any situation, a true survivalist.
