Dudley was born July 18, 1963 in Atlanta, Ga. but was raised and felt he was a native of Duluth,
GA. He is preceded in death by his parents, John Dudley Pilgrim, Jr of Duluth, GA and Wilma Jean Day of Taylorsville, GA and his loving companion, Doris Edmondson of Duluth, GA.
He is survived by his siblings; Jane Allred of Gulf Breeze, Fl, Denise Cheek (Phillip) of
Taylorsville, Ga, Elizabeth Pilgrim of Decatur, Ga. and sister by marriage Debra Crane of
Cartersville, Ga. He has two children, a daughter, Randi Davis Minor of Braselton, Ga. He has two grandsons, Foster and Finn Mayfield as well as nieces and nephews: Rebecca Hollis, Bradley Cheek, Katie Cheek, Bobbie Ervin, Kellie Truax, Andrew Allred and Matthew Allred in addition to many great nieces and nephews.
Dudley was a wonderful cabinet maker. He inherited this talent and hobby from his grandfather
Hoy Collum of Taylorsville, Ga whom he deeply loved.
Later in life he took a position as a trainer for the over the road truck driving industry and
traveled all over the United States. A passion he didn’t realize he had until later in life but
something he was able to do and succeed at doing. He had many stories to tell of his travels!
There will be a private memorial for the family at a later date.
