Dr Frank Roland Dudley, 77, former minister of Central Presbyterian Church, here, died at his home at 2124 NW 26 Saturday. He had been in ill health the past two years. Services will be at 4 pm Monday in the First Presbyterian Church with burial in Rose Hill Cemetery. The body will lie in state at Guardian Funeral Home all day Sunday and until 2 pm Monday.

Dr Dudley was born in Union Hall, VA on Dec 25, 1880. His first pastorate was the First Presbyterian Church in Azusa, CA, in 1916. In 1918 he became YMCA director of religious education in the Hawaiian district for the Army and Navy. Following WWI, he held pastorates at Tulpelo, MS, and El Dorado, AR. He came to Central Presbyterian Church here in 1930 and served as pastor until 1941. Since then he preached in many churches throughout Oklahoma as supply minister and served as hospital chaplain for the Oklahoma City Council of Churches.

Survivors are his wife; two sons, Frank R Dudley Jr of New York City; and Cmdr John A Dudley, with the US Navy in Washington DC; a daughter, Mrs Jack Baer, Norman; and three grandchildren. The family suggests that instead of flowers, contributions be made to the Akin and Appleton Medical Research Trust Fund and sent in care of Dean Mark Everett of the University of Oklahoma Medical School.
