Jerry Bitz Dugan

May 7, 1942 — June 4, 2022

Jerry Bitz Dugan, 80, passed away on June 4, 2022 at home with his wife at his side.    

Jerry was born in Dallas, TX on May 7, 1942. He grew up in Southgate, CA, moving to Bakersfield in the seventies for his lifetime job at Hood Industries, which he retired from in 2006. He was an avid fan of his children’s activities, which included the Viking band, swim meets, volleyball and soccer games. He loved hunting and fishing with his son, Nick, and going to the Round-Up and Dugan family reunions. Another favorite was going to the beach with his family every summer.

He leaves behind his beloved family, his wife of 49 years, Janet, daughters Colleen Reed (George), their children, Tyson, Jonathan, Susan, and Corey, along with several great grandchildren; Jenny Cornelison (Jason), their children, Drew, and Carlee; Meagan Witcher, her children Noble and Emma; and son Nick Dugan (Becky) and their children, Layla and Adley; brother, Steve Dugan (Wendy); sister-in-law Carole Spencer; and many nieces and nephews.

Special thanks to Hoffmann Hospice for the comfort and care they provided to Jerry and Janet these past few months as he struggled with his Parkinson’s.

Services will be held on Tuesday, June 14, 2022, at 12:30 p.m. at Doughty-Calhoun-O’Meara Chapel, 1100 Truxtun Avenue, Bakersfield. Interment to follow at Greenlawn Memorial Park Southwest on Panama Lane.

Happy Trails to you……. Until we meet again!
