I much regret that Dudley Davis N4DPD passed away on Saturday, January 31, 2015 at home with his family.
Dudley was one of the first hams that became one of my elmers. We went to multiple hamfest over the years and he helped me grow in the hobby. For several years we would goto Grumpys on Sunday mornings. He was active member of the Orange Park Amateur Radio club and member of the Clay County Sixers.
Dudley was a great friend to many of us and will be missed.
The viewing will be Monday 02/02/2015 from 5PM-7PM.
