Jeffrey J. Dudek

Fair warning.

This will not be your typical obituary because Jeffrey J. Dudek was most certainly not a typical man.

He came into this world on May 10, 1971, as a tiny little preemie, born to Bob and Alice (Westphal) Dudek. A high risk pregnancy and birth; Alice was advised to not have any more babies after this one. The mold was broken. He was one-of-a-kind.

A heart of gold and presence bigger than life, he was what some might see as a big, “rough around the edges,” burly biker with a flair for colorful language. He entertained all with his wit and unique humor. He would help anyone and got along with everyone (unless they were tools; he didn’t care for them). During his recent battle with cancer, he kept it real and helped us probably more than we could help him. Our family’s eyes were opened to just how many other people knew and loved him as much as we did.
