Joseph Wayne Dudley, 83, returned home March 24, 2002 surrounded by his loving wife, faithful children and devoted grandchildren. Wayne was born February 17, 1919 in Malad, Idaho, one of four sons, to Joseph F. and Barbara Davis Dudley. Following a childhood on the farm where he learned the value of hard work, Wayne embarked on a lifetime of service to his family, his friends and his God. Wayne married Gail Joy Warren in the Salt Lake Temple on June 6, 1944. In the midst of world turmoil, they established a home based on love, peace and covenants that enriched their lives for 58 years and will endure for eternity. Seven children blessed their union, one of whom, Warren Wayne, preceded him in death. As a young man, Wayne served in the Spanish-American Mission of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Following missionary service, he served in the Army intelligence units during World War II. Among numerous church assignments, Wayne served as Bishop, Stake President, Patriarch and Temple worker. Wayne's love for the Lord is best exemplified by his final week with us during which he performed temple ordinances with his family, gave a patriarchal blessing to a grandson and attended another grandson's missionary farewell just hours before his passing. This joyous week provides wonderful memories and lasting examples for his family whom he loved and nurtured his entire life. Wayne worked as a credit manager and accountant.

He is survived by his wife, Gail; six children and their spouses, Joan (John) Oldroyd, Michael (Michelle), Roger (Jane), Richard (Joanne), Clark (Shanette), Brian (Alisa); 33 grandchildren and one great-grandson; preceded in death by one grandchild, Carrie Ann Dudley.

Funeral services will be held Friday, March 29, 2002 at 12 noon at the Valley View 11th Ward, 4032 South 2300 East. Friends may call Thursday Evening from 6-8 p.m. at Wasatch Lawn Mortuary, 3401 Highland Dr., and from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. prior to the services on Friday at the church. Interment will be in the Salt Lake City Cemetery. In Lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Missionary Fund of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
