John Jr. Hudson went to be with the Lord on Friday, February 27, 2009. Born July 11, 1942, in Olive Hill, Kentucky, he moved to Mansfield, Ohio, in 1956, where he attended school and graduated from Mansfield Senior High School. He was employed at Ontario General Motors for 30 years as a tool and die maker, then supervisor, retiring in 1992. John was in fellowship with God's Grace Ministries. He was a member of the Mansfield Masonic Lodge #35, F. & A.M. Among his many outstanding knowledgeable talents was his love and compassion for his family and friends, going camping, traveling, watching baseball, NASCAR, and sprint racing. All who needed wisdom or to be educated in genealogy, government and morality sought it through John. John's passion was Inner City Amateur Radio Club, where his call letters were KC8GN0, Skywarn, Computer Technology and playing Flyff with his children and grandchildren online.
John is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Sylvia Ann (Casler) Hudson; two daughters, Lena (David) Baker of Mansfield and Regina (Timothy) McQuigg of Mt. Vernon; two sons, Shawn (Angie) Hudson and Gary (Sandy) Hudson, all of Mansfield; six grandchildren, Ben, Jessica, Kyle, Zach, Sara and Gracie. John was preceded in death by his parents, Lena Nadine Wilson Nolen and John Hudson; aunt, Georgia Curtis and grandparents, Odem and Emma Garvin Wilson.
