Carroll was a proud Veteran of the U.S. Navy and served his country with honor. He was a life-long member of the Knights of Columbus and participated in the American Legion. Those who had the pleasure to work with Carroll gave him the nickname “Road Runner” and he sure lived up to the name. He loved to hunt and passed that passion down to his sons. Of all Carroll’s professions and commitments, he held his love for his family above all. Carroll was an incredible father and poppa to his children and grandchildren. He will be deeply and dearly missed by all those who had the honor to know and love him.
Chauvin Funeral Home is honored to serve the family of Carroll James Dugas.
