Jim Hudson, Jr.

James Alfred “Jim” Hudson, Jr., 77, of Logansport, passed away peacefully on Thursday, June 10, 2021, at the Visiting Nurse Hospice, Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Born September 2, 1943, in Middletown, Connecticut, he was the son of the late James Alfred Hudson Sr. and Jennie (Rose) Hudson.

Jim was attending his best friend’s wedding when he noticed a beautiful young lady who was helping cater the reception. He knew right there he was going to marry that girl someday. On April 18, 1964, in Middletown, CT, he married the love of his life, Mary Lou (Hackert) Hudson, who survives.

The couple lived in many different states, including Connecticut, Maine, Florida, Tennessee and Michigan, before deciding to head back to Florida 24 years ago. They packed up their trailer and headed south from Michigan, pulling into Logansport, Indiana a few hours later to fill-up with gas and grab a bite to eat. And, that’s as far south as they got. They fell in love with this charming little town and decided to camp at Tall Sycamore Campgrounds for a few weeks. Everyone they met was so friendly. The Hudson’s loved everything about this community, so Logansport became their forever home.

Before retiring, Jim had worked in construction and was employed at the former TM Morris Manufacturing.

A nature-lover, Jim enjoyed the beauty of a quiet walk in the woods. He also enjoyed hunting and working on cars.

Surviving with his wife of over 57 years, Mary Hudson, are two children, Penny Jean (Kerry) Howell, Indianapolis, and James A. (Theresa) Hudson III, Peru; and two brothers, Raymond Hudson, Winter Garden, Florida, and Robert MacKenzie, Beverly Hills, Florida. He was also the beloved “Pappy” to eight grandchildren; and thirteen great-grandchildren.

A private family visitation was held and a family Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
