April 13, 1935 - Jan. 15, 2014

ANDERSON — Robert F. “Bob” Dudley, 78, of Anderson, passed away Jan. 15, 2014, at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis after a three-year journey fighting esophageal cancer.

He was born on April 13, 1935, in Muncie, and resided most of his life in Anderson.

Bob graduated from Muncie Central High School in 1953. He was an everlasting devoted Bearcat.

Bob was a gifted carpenter, homebuilder, master digger, “Mister Fixit” and machine operator for Delco Remy. He had a passion for golfing and anything outside, which he passed on to his daughter. He was also a supreme peanut butter fudge maker.

Bob retired in 1997 and completed his dream of traveling to all 50 states with his wife. He had a love for puzzles, the Chicago Cubs, and Indiana University basketball, family, friends, and his church family. His life was guided by his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and he was a active member of the Bethel Baptist Church in Lapel.

Robert is survived by his loving spouse and best friend, Jacque Dudley of Anderson; daughter, Kim E. (Bob) Cain of Muncie; his grandson, Lucas M. (Yedid) Dudley of Bradford, Texas; a sister, Mary Dominick of Muncie; brother, Herbert Dudley of Muncie; several cousins, nieces and nephews; and special friends, Kathy Knight and Sharon Beckley.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Ethel Dudley; son, David M. Dudley; and a sister, Jean Smith.

Visitation will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. Monday at Robert D. Loose Funeral Homes & Crematory, Anderson.

Services will be held at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday at the funeral home with Pastor Dillard Cole officiating.
