Dick was born June 9, 1933 and had lived in the Hingham area all his life. He married Ruth Klemetson in 1956 and they had four sons, Larry, Mike, Dan and Mark. They all survive him.

Dick enjoyed traveling around looking for old tractors, stationary engines and old cars. He also enjoyed visiting with other collectors, going to auction sales, threshing bees, etc.

Dick was a farmer all his life, and his son Mark now operates the farm. Dick loved his family and enjoyed his farming operation. He will be greatly missed by all. With four sons, none of his collection is for sale.

The untimely passing of Lloyd A. Dugan, 71, July 12, 1997, was deeply felt by family and many friends. Masonic funeral services were held in Borger, Texas. Graveside services were held under the auspices of Isom Masonic Lodge 1242 of which Lloyd was a member. He was also a member of Borger Eastern Star Chapter 811 and Borger American Legion 671. He was a gas measuring engineer.

Lloyd married Thelma Litchford June 4, 1981. They made their home in Fritch, Texas, but during winter months they resided in Mission, Texas.

Lloyd felt a strong need to preserve antique machinery, but probably his major interest was the restoration of John Deere tractors. While enjoying the mild winter climate in Mission, Lloyd was a member of an antique tractor club and spent much time restoring John Deeres.

A member of the Golden Spread Antique Machinery Association (in his home area), Lloyd was hard at work at least two weeks before the annual show each September.

Survivors include his wife, Thelma of the home; two daughters, Yvonne Nichols of Borger, Texas, and Kiona Payne of Odessa, Texas; step-daughters Sharon Duckworth, of Anaheim, California, and Kerry Moon of Laguna Niguel, California; step-sons, John Moon of O'Keene, Oklahoma, Melvin Moon of Buena Park, California, and Gordon D. Moon, of Moreno Valley, California; one brother, Melvin Dean Dugan of Moundridge, Kansas; five grandchildren, 11 step-grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and 10 step-great-grandchildren.
