Joe K. Dugger Obituary
Joe K. Dugger, 79, passed away Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013. Funeral: 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in Greenwood Funeral Home Chapel. Memorials: TCU Athletics or . Honorary pallbearers: Mike Renfro, Larry Harris, Hunter Enis, Jim Shofner, Jim McCord, Jack Crowley, Joe Cates, Bill Estell, Jim Swink, Dennis Claridge, Dewain Dugger, Clint Renfro, Ford Renfro, Paul Chandler and Possum Elenburg. Joe was born and raised in Collin County to Lionel and Opal Dugger. He graduated from Polytechnic High School in 1952. He contracted polio in his senior year, but it never slowed him down. He overcame his disability to excel in many business endeavors -- oil and gas, restaurants, hotels and real estate development. Joe graduated with a BBA from TCU and continued to be a lifelong supporter of the Frogs. After college, he worked for the Harvison-Fisher Co., owned Colonial Oaks Restaurant in east Fort Worth, managed Clayton House hotels and was a successful real estate developer, which included the River Plaza office building. His later life included legendary gourmet meals prepared for his friends. Joe's generosity (he financially supported numerous students through college), sense of humor, cooking and love of sports made everyone want to be in his company. Survivors: Son, Tony Stone; brother, James Dugger and wife, Jewel, and their family; and several nieces and nephews.
