Preston Hudson Obituary, Death – On the day that he would have turned 95 years old, February 22, 2023, Charles Preston Hudson, who resided in North Garden and was 95 years old, passed away at home. Charlie Hudson was born on July 6, 1927 in North Garden, Virginia. His parents, Thomas Preston Hudson and Eva Estelle (Houchens) Hudson, both passed away before their son’s birth. Both of his parents had already passed away before he was born.
In addition to his parents, Charlie Hudson was preceded in death by his wife, Laura (Tyler) Hudson; three sisters, Mildred Mallory, Pauline Morris, and Eva Mallory; a brother, Harold Hudson; and a nephew, Gus Morris. All of these individuals were born before Charlie Hudson. Following their father’s passing, Charlie and his mother were the primary caregivers for him, his younger siblings, and his mother. Working hard on the dairy farm that his family owned was the primary means by which he provided for his family over a considerable period of his life.
Charlie’s obligations on the farm kept him pretty busy, but he still found time to go to the church and spend time with his family. Despite his hectic schedule, he was a good family man. During that time period, he went to Hardware Baptist Church in North Garden, where he was active for 26 years, in addition to attending services at a number of other churches in the neighborhood. Charlie enjoyed going to a broad variety of churches in the neighborhood and looked forward with great anticipation to going to homecomings and revivals. He also looked forward to going to church every Sunday. In addition to that, he was a member of the Farmer’s Association and frequently advocated during board meetings for the interests of the local farmers.
