WILLIAM R. DUGGER
William R. Dugger, 91, a former Latah County and Pullman resident, died of age-related
causes Tuesday at the Orofino Care Center in Orofino, Idaho.
He was born Dec. 4, 1900, in Butler, Tenn., to James P. and Minnie Hatley Dugger. The
family moved to Troy, Idaho, in 1905 and later moved to Viola where he grew up and
attended school.
They lived in Pullman for several years before moving to the Mason Prairie southwest of Craigmont in 1918.
He married Helen Conway on Dec. 27, 1921, at Lewiston. They made their home near Westlake, where he and his brother farmed and ranched.
In 1923, the couple bought a ranch between Winchester and Forest, Idaho, and besides ranching, he also worked for 25 years at the Craig Mountain Lumber Co., at Winchester, which later became the Halleck and Howard Mill.
They moved to Sweetwater in 1952, where they continued to ranch. Upon retiring in 1965,
they returned to the Winchester ranch, where they lived until he entered the care center in
July 1991.
Survivors include his wife of Winchester; and a brother, James Dugger of Orofino.
The funeral service will be Friday at 10:30 a.m. at the Winchester Community Church with
the Rev. Steven Bly of the church officiating. Burial will follow at the IOOF Cemetery in Craigmont.
The family suggests memorials to the Winchester Quick Response Unite.
Uhlorn Funeral Home at Craigmont is in charge of arrangements.
