Madison– William Nelson Hudson, Jr. , age 64, departed this life on March 23, 2013. He was born on September 29, 1948 in Columbus, Mississippi to William Nelson Hudson, Sr. and Ida Mae (Stokes) Hudson. Both have preceded him in death. He was the eldest of their three children. The Hudson family departed Mississippi in 1956 and relocated to Gary, Indiana, which became their new home. He attended Roosevelt High School in Indiana and graduated in 1965. William was a very independent and hardworking man all of his life. He worked for LTV Steele Corporation, as well as Blow Knoxx, Inc. as a head assembly line technician for more than ten years.

He came to Madison in 1987 to make a better life for himself. He continued his career as a chef for the Maple Bluff Country Club for five years. He openly expressed how much he enjoyed this kind of employment. He then worked at Rowley Schlimgen as an assembler/driver for over fifteen years.

William was an amazing man who was willing to give his last, believed in Jesus Christ and accepted him as his Lord and Savior. He truly loved his family and friends unconditionally and always made himself available to anyone in need.

William leaves to mourn his four children, daughter Alisa R. (Robert) Hudson-Crawford of Gary, IN, and three sons William “Teddy Mice” Jones of Minnesota, Anthony Tyrone (Katherine) Hudson of Indianapolis, Indiana, and William “Wicky” Nelson Hudson-McKinnie of Madison; one sister Faye Jewel (Robert) Hudson-Adams of Sun Prairie; one brother Terry Lee (Juanita) Hudson of Crown Point, IN; six grandchildren; three nieces; two nephews; a host of great nieces and nephews; one great-great niece, as well as a host of cousins, friends and one special aunt Emma Lee Stokes who is 90 years old and still living in Columbus, MS.

He was preceded in death by his parents and one nephew, Terry Lee Hudson, Jr.
