In 1969, Hudson graduated from John F. Kennedy High School  and then entered the United States Marines Corps. His employment just prior to retirement was as a Forklift Operator for Eastern Consolidation & Distribution Service, Inc in Camp Hill, PA.

 

On his birthday, August 8, 2008, in the beautiful Hershey Gardens, in PA, Hudson married Lavonne (Smith) Ali. Hudson lived a quiet life with Lavonne, in Harrisburg, PA.

 

Hudson was a complex man who was tough yet tender-hearted. Beyond his reserved exterior was the courage and intelligence of a proud Marine. Yet, just one mention of the Lord Jesus Christ and he would be unashamedly moved to tears. Hudson was an avid New York Giants fan and rooted loudly and enthusiastically for his team. Those who knew him closely experienced him as a jokester, with quick wit. Hudson loved to eat, in fact, he always looked forward to an opportunity to enjoy a pot of beef curry prepared by his family.

 

Fishing! Hudson loved to go fishing! He also loved dogs. Another one of his most favorite pastimes was TV watching, but not just any TV it had to be something intellectual. With the TV on full blast, he loved watching The Outdoor and History channels or Western  and Retro TV. 

 

In the early morning hours of Sunday, August 13, 2023, Hudson, 72, transitioned from mortality to immortality in Harrisburg, PA.

 

Hudson is survived by his devoted wife Lavonne Ali. 

 

He was also blessed to be a grandfather, uncle, great uncle, great great uncle and great great great uncle.
