Gary was the Chief Medical Officer for Penn Highlands since 2007.

He graduated from Neshaminy High School and went on to receive a bachelor’s degree in Biology from Wilkes College, where he graduated magna cum laude. Gary received his medical degree from Hershey Medical Center of the Pennsylvania State University, and completed an internal medicine internship, and residency, at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown, where he was also the Chief Medical Resident.

He received a Master of Medical Management degree from Tulane University in New Orleans. He was board certified in Internal Medicine and a CPE (certified physician executive) of the American College of Physician Executives.

Gary is survived by his parents, his wife Joy, his daughter Nicole, and two sons, Mitchell and Zachary, and his dog NimZ.

He is also survived by his brothers, Steve, and Bill DuGan, and his sisters, Cheryl Rupprecht, and Kim Calicchio. He is also survived by nieces, nephews, in-laws, cousins, and friends.

Gary enjoyed yearly trips with his family to Canada and Ocean City, NJ.

He was a die-hard Penn State football and wrestling fan and, against his better judgement, a life-long Philadelphia Eagles fan.

He also had a passion for fishing, weight lifting, and hanging out on the lake in his pontoon boat.
