How fortunate for me to grow up living in the neighborhood with The Mallory’s. The whole family always so very kind and generous. It was not a coincidence that everyone, “the gang” would end up hanging out at the Mallory’s. Those times at their place down at the river were the best ever and will never be forgotten. Mr and Mrs Mallory were both always incredibly hospitable. I remember sitting down to numerous meals of the best southern cooking prepared by Mrs Mallory.

I always remember Dudley smiling and joking around. Always fun and interesting to talk to. I really wanted to go on that cross country trip with him,Hank and Ed, but I was still in High School and could not convince my parents to let me skip my senior year.

I am so very sad to know that Dudley has passed away and wish to extend my condolences to Ted and his family, Lynn and her family, Mrs Mallory, and all his friends.

So saddened to learn of the passing of Dudley. It was quite a shock. I have a lot fond memories of our family's days together in the early days of Derbyshire Baptist Church. The Mallory family were always a caring and loving family. Mr & Mrs. Mallory always present smile and hospitality. My prayers and thought will be with you all this week. Unfortunately I have a previous engagement at the same time on Thursday and will be unable to be at the service. May our GOD continue to bless all of you. Respectfully, Woody Robertson, Jr.

Dudley was a kind and loving friend. We spent many hours talking, laughing and solving the world’s problems together. There was no one like him. He was very sweet to me. Love and sympathy to his loved ones. His friends in the “Neck” will never forget him.

When i first met my husband, i quickly met many of his childhood friends, but Dudley was one of the special ones. Dudley, thanks for the sense of humor, kindness, and compassion that so quickly filled my soul over the years...you will be remembered. Love, Lydia Harrison.

Dudley and I shared many adventures during our early teenage and adult years, including a multi month , cross country trip, living out of a van with our good friend Ed. We enjoyed the camaraderie of the road, experiencing life, and discovering new places and friends.
Our “crew” was a few years younger than Dud, and we looked up to him as an “older brother”, for guidance and support.. Memories that last a lifetime.
My condolences to his family and many friends..
