Memorial Service for Hit-and-Run Accident Victim to be Held, All Invited

Man charged in manslaughter of Lori Dudley scheduled for sentencing.

LEESBURG – A memorial service will be held for Lori Dudley at Gator Harley-Davidson on Saturday, August 27th from 12:30 pm until 2:00 pm.

Dudley was loved by many in our community. She passed away on August 20th at the age of 54 after suffering injuries during a traffic accident on US 27.

Those who knew Lori would say how kind, caring and compassionate she was. Her love for animals provoked her to start her business “Lori Saves the Day, Dog Walking and Pet Sitting”. Many in our community know her well from this business. The memorial service will be open to the public and the family stated, “The more the better.”


Family members reached out in an email stating they are looking for any witnesses who helped Lori during the tragic accident and who were there with her in her last moments. If you have any information or were one of the witnesses please contact us at 352-235-9242 or email us at
