Upon graduation from West Green, he attended Douglas High School where he played football and was also on the track team. Dudley was a lifelong Dawg, and as such, attended the University of Georgia from 1950 to 1954, graduating with a BS degree. In addition to collecting his degree, he also met the love of his life, JoAnn Dorminey, who was also a student at University of Georgia. To win her heart, Dudley and a pal filled the swimming pool at the KD house, where JoAnn lived, with magnolia blossoms one night because he knew it was her favorite flower, just to surprise her. As they say, the rest is history, and they married in June of 1955. Dudley and JoAnn settled in Douglas, Ga. after they wed and were blessed with two children, Lisa and Chip. Dudley continued to work in the family farming business and later became a salesman with Georgia Ace Fertilizer. In 1979 he and JoAnn relocated to Lilburn, Ga. and he took a job with the Agri-chemical division of US Steel. He was a born salesman and man of the road flying and driving all across the nation making friends all along the way. Dudley knew how to get things done, from matters relating to selling his products, hiring the right people, or finding the best steak while on the road. He was truly in his element when surrounded by his friends, family and business associates. In 1995 Dudley retired from LaRoache Industries. In 1997, he and JoAnn decided to move to Chateau Elan in Braselton, Ga. After building their home and setting up his massive shop, he was preparing to kick back, then Dudley had another idea! He decided to run for the Braselton Town Council, winning handily and serving four terms.
