Mr. Dudley was the son of Thomas Allen and Sarah Crumpler Dudley. He was preceded in death by his father. He was a register nurse. He was a loving husband, father and papa.
In addition, Tom Dudley was known by many as “Mr. Tom.” As the namesake of Tom Thumb, he loved each child that came through the doors as his own. He loved to shag with his bride, cruise on his pontoon and cooked way too much food. Tom served others passionately and loved big! May he be honored and remembered in the way we serve and love one another.
