September 27, 1944

Dudley Mabee was born about 1925 in Colorado. He was the oldest son of Zell F. Mabee and Frances E. Mabee. Dudley was in training on the morning of September 18, 1944, when his B-26 Marauder crashed and killed five of the six man crew. The crash occured at Scott Field, near St. Louis, Missouri. Dudley's remains were returned to Colorado and he was buried at the Green Mountain Cemetery, in Boulder. His father Zell was a professor at the state college in Boulder and he wrote, "I was pretty sure that this war would cost us our oldest boy when it started in 1939. I am bitter. This business of being proud of a casket with a flag on it is not the kind of thing I go for." Zell Mabee died on March 30, 1976 at the age of 77.
