Funeral service for Charlie Lewis Hudson will be 11 a.m. Tuesday, July 5, at Riverwood Family, with interment in the Beauregard Cemetery in Wesson. Visitation is from 10 a.m. until the time of service on Tuesday.

Mr. Hudson, 91, of Wesson, MS, passed from this life June 28, 2022. He was born in Hazlehurst, MS, November 22, 1930, to Thomas Tillman Hudson and Lottie Lee McClendon Hudson. He served his country in the United States Navy during the Korean War. Mr. Hudson was a member of Brookhaven First Church of the Nazarene and was a faithful servant of the Lord. During his lifetime he worked as a General Contractor, building residential and commercial buildings, and he would later build for Habitat for Humanity. He was a gracious gardener as well, and the phrase “the bigger the better” was his motto in preparing the soil for his garden. Everyone benefited from that too. He will be forever missed by his family and friends, as well as all who knew and loved him.

He is preceded in death by his first wife of 40 years, Barbara Hudson; his parents; sons, Robert Louis Hudson and Mark Edward Hudson; brothers, Lee Hudson, Howard Hudson, Robert Hudson, and Glenn Hudson; and sisters, Sallie, Susie, Lola Mae, Mary, and Myrtle.
