    I'm not good when it comes to this kind of stuff, but was just informed that Dudley has passed away.

    I do not have any other details, other than this information came directly from one of Dudley's sons.

    My deepest sympathies go out to Matt, Shawn, and their entire family!!! I hope that everyone is able to give them the support they need, and also time needed to grieve the loss of their father. Please keep Matt, Shawn, and their entire family in your thoughts and prayers. This is a great loss in our Steel Soldiers family and everyone else Dudley was friends with in and outside this hobby!

    I have just received a call from CARNAC.

    I have shockingly sad news to report - Dudley, aka Atankersdad, has passed away this morning, Monday March 7, 2016 due to complications following his surgery in Baltimore, MD.

    This just happened and details will be posted as available and appropriate.

    Heavenly Father,
    We just don't understand. In our humanity, Your plan for our lives and the times of our passing are unknowable. Yet, Lord, we do trust you even unto death.
    Please cover Dudley's family with a peace that surpasses understanding. Give to each of us who have known him through the SS Forums and in person words of comfort for his family and for each other.
    In Jesus' name we pray.
    AMEN.

    Oh no! This just proves that no surgery is routine. More prayers for Dudley's loved ones!

    I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Dudley, but I want his family to know that they are being lifted up.

    Dudley was one of the first people I physically met at Steel Soldiers. It was at the 2011 GA Rally and he was a good man. May perpetual light shine upon him.
