Joel E. Dugan, longtime resident of Brighton, died on February 7, 2016, in Fenton, MI. He was born in Bendersville, PA on March 24, 1938, the son of Maurice and Marvel Dugan.
He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Anna Mae Ogden Dugan, daughters, Stephanie Bajorek (Dan), Colleen Carey (Paul), grandchildren, Katie Bajorek, Tim Bajorek, Anna Bajorek, Nick Carey, and Connor Carey.

Joel graduated from Biglerville High School, Biglerville, PA, in 1956 and the Agricultural Engineering Program at Pennsylvania State University, in 1958. He was a member of the 28th Division Pennsylvania National Guard. He was employed by International Harvester for 20 years as a heavy equipment salesman. In 1981 he established Joel Dugan Lawn and Snow, which continues until the present time. He managed the landscaping needs for many folks in Southfield, Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, and Brighton, many of whom became his good friends. He loved Morgan Horses, golden retrievers, and labrador retriever. Gardening was a life long hobby. He also enjoyed hunting as a young man, kayaking and bicycling. He was an avid practical jokester and loved nothing better.
