Lloyd Alvin Hudson, 85, of Orlando, Florida passed away on Wednesday, June 28, 2017.

He was born in Orlo Vista, Florida on March 4, 1932, to the late Lonnie and Ruth Hudson.

Lloyd served in the National Guard Reserves before he was old enough for the full-fledged military, later moving into the Air Force and serving during the Korean War.

He met his wife, Betty, while working as a “soda jerk” in the local drugstore; and, they went on to create a family with two daughters.

Lloyd worked in the construction industry as a sheet metal mechanic until he retired in the early 1990’s. As a hobby, Lloyd bowled competitively on the side. He loved being involved with their church, attending, serving, and singing in the choir. On occasion, he would sing a solo during a Sunday service. In his younger years, he even played on a church softball team. Even in his latter days you could still hear his trademark “Do-di-do-do” as he moved about life.

And, what he mostly did was serve.

The most admirable aspect of his life was his faithfulness to his Lord, family, church, and neighbors. He lived simply, quietly serving however and whenever he could. With his handyman skills and kindness in tow he would serve the needs of his family, friends and neighbors. Often, he would bake cakes and pies to share and give away. Above all, his wife knew him as the ultimate servant. Lloyd devoted himself to taking care of his wife’s daily needs as her health became a challenge to her.

Lloyd’s absence will be felt within his family, church, and neighborhood.

He was preceded in death by his Parents; Brother, Carl and Sister, Merle.

Lloyd is survived by his Wife, Betty J. Hudson; Daughters, Katherine Johnston (Berry) and Susan Sexton; Grandsons, Matthew Johnston and Luke Johnston; Granddaughters, Amrah Massave, Ashley Sexton and Becky Sexton; Great Grandsons, Ethan Johnston and Mason Johnston; Brother, Robert Hudson (Sandy) and Sisters, Bonita Martin (Jerry) and Marilyn Hudson.

The Hudson Family invites you to a Celebration of Lloyd’s Life at 10am on Saturday, August 19, 2017 at Baldwin-Fairchild Funeral Home, 5800 Hansel Ave, Orlando, FL 32809.
