James Arthur Dudley, loving husband, grandfather, brother, and friend, succumbed to the fight with cancer and departed early morning 4/26/18. He lived a life of joy and passion. James loved the outdoors. He was in his element hunting, camping, or fishing. He was also known to appreciate a leisurely round of golf. But most of all, he loved his family paramount. His actions demonstrated that daily. James had a contagious laugh that was hearty enough to fill a coliseum. His heart was large enough to shoulder burdens that weren’t his bear. He set an example for compassion and strength that guided many who were lost through the worst times. James was a dedicated patriarch, a patient and eager teacher, and a caring companion. He is succeeded by his grandchildren and siblings. His memory will be honored through all those he supported and affected. A memorial service is scheduled for 6/30/18 at 3PM Bustard’s Funeral Home 600 CY Ave, Casper, WY 82601 .
