A native of Williamsport, PA, Dug was born on March 20, 1953, and was the youngest son of Judge Charles F. Greevy, Jr., and Eleanor L. (Seitzer) Greevy. Dug attended Wyoming Seminary Prep School and graduated from the Mercersburg Academy in 1971. He attended Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA, graduating with a BA in Philosophy in 1975. During his time at Dickinson, he studied abroad in Scotland for a year and forever after held a profound love for the United Kingdom. He attended Dickinson School of Law in Carlisle. Dug married Margaret "Peggy" Sims on July 30, 1983, aboard the Hiawatha Paddleboat on the Susquehanna River. Dug's father, Judge Greevy, officiated over their ceremony. Dug's beloved Peggy passed away on September 3, 2008, after a courageous 23-year battle with breast cancer. They had been married for 25 years. Dug and Peggy are survived by their only son, James "Jay" Greevy of Springfield, VA. Dug is also survived by his brothers, Charles F. "Skip" Greevy, III, (Gloria) of Williamsport, PA, and Robert A. Greevy (Sophie) of Hummelston, PA, and a sister, Ann E. Shumaker (John) of Grantville, PA.

Dug was co-editor of an original reference book and exhaustive directory of Political Action Committees entitled The PAC Directory, which was published in 1982 during the early years of computerized research. After its success, he coedited a second two-volume directory that was published in 1984.
