Gerald was born in White Point in 1932 to the late Harry and Mabel (Webber) Doggett.
Raised in the village of White Point, Gerald received his early education in the one room school house and received his higher education at the Liverpool Academy.

He began his career with Scotia Chev Olds in Halifax and, in 1961, obtained his CVT certificate in Moncton, NB. Returning to White Point in 1962, he ran the Fina station in Hunt’s Point and later the Texaco station. He worked for Rossignol’s Sales and Service for ten years before opening his own business “Gerald Doggett’s Garage” serving his customers for 25 years retiring in 1997. Gerald was a long time member and president of the Jolly Roger’s Square Dance Club, the Antique Auto Club, and a member of the Wesley United Church in Hunt’s Point.
Gerald leaves behind his son Kevin (Esther) of White Point, his daughter Diane (Richard) King of Tusket; grandchildren Kimberly Doggett (Susan Veinot), Adam (Alyssa) Doggett, Arthur Doggett, April King, Nathaniel King (Morgan Walker). Great-grandchildren Ivy King, William and Samuel Doggett. His brothers Gilbert and Wayne (Sharon), both of Dartmouth and David (Carol) of White Point.
