Dudley was filled with enthusiastic encouragement for us young people. I may not have been Bates material, Dudley, but never forgot your confidence in me.

My sister and I are saddened to hear of Dudley's passing. We often walked with him and Archie on Dexter's Drumlin in all kinds of weather. We enjoyed hearing about Dudley's younger days and time with his wife, whom he loved very much. We will miss him and offer you all our sincerest condolences.

Dudley was a good friend and we enjoyed sharing our music. He and my late husband, Ralph, carpooled several years back and forth to PPG. We always enjoyed an evening visit with each other when our children were young.. Chipoer and our Son, Bill were quite a competitive pair when they were young.

Tom-I am so sorry for your loss. I remember your Dad from our high school days (has it really been over 40 years??). I remember his intelligence, and his friendliness to all of us. I am sure he was as proud of your accomplishments as you were of his.

God bless you and family.

I first met Dudley back in the 1960's and 1970's when we rode in a carpool to PPG with Paul Anthony and Ron Chamberlain. Paul had a very tragic accident and left his widow with a large family. Dudley, Ron and I were big Akron Symphony fans. They sang in the choir and I had season tickets. Unfortunately we were all laided off and I lost track of everybody. I am glad that Dudley picked up and had a successful career. My sympathy goes out to his family and friends
