Jerry grew up in Normangee, TX and moved to Houston, TX in 1966. He started working for Brown and Root in the construction of the Sheldon papermill where he worked until he retired in 2003. He moved back home to Normangee to do what he loved: ranching and taking care of the home place, which has been in the family for many, many years. He was involved with the Ten Mile Cemetery Association, First Baptist Church of Madisonville, Madisonville Mustang Athletics and Madison County Fair Association. One of Jerry’s greatest joys was volunteering at the Pathway of Lights each year during Christmas. He cherished times with family spent on “The Hill,” which he considered his heaven on earth; during Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

Jerry was preceded in death by both of his parents, Jesse and Lillis Hudson; brothers, Tom and Kenneth Hudson; father-in-law & mother-in-law, Bo and Melba Dyer and brothers-in-law, Jimmy Dyer & wife, Myra and Jerry Dyer.

He is survived by his high school sweetheart/wife of 52 years, Ann Dyer Hudson; daughter, Sheri Hudson Ritchie & husband, Raymond; son, Ron Hudson & wife, Sara; daughter, Becky Hudson Stack & husband, Chris; eight grandchildren, Stephanie Morse & husband, John, Tiffany Buntion & husband, Cody, Brittany “Pooh” Vick & husband, Travis, Thomas Hudson, Will Hudson, Hunter Stack, Rayce Hudson and Tyler Stack; five great granddaughters, Macie Morse, Tatum Buntion, Gracie Morse, Eastyn Buntion and Avery Vick; brother, Leon Hudson & wife, Odessa; sisters-in-law, Mary and Louise Hudson and Joyce Dyer and Nina Dyer; brother-in-law, Wayne Dyer and a host of loving nieces, nephews and cousins.
