    Mr. Hudgens was a great friend and neighbor for almost 20 years. He was generous in sharing his famous tomato plant seedlings, provided invaluable gardening wisdom, and jumped in to help without waiting to be asked. His gentle demeanor, quick wit and soft spoken nature will always stay with me. We were buddies and I will miss him dearly. Much love to his family who are a testament to the great man he was.

    One of the kindest and the most personable men I have ever known. His warm smile and gentle demeanor bring tears to my eyes as I write this and remember his laughter during our last conversation.A WW2 vet and a true hero, he fought and secured the freedoms we enjoy to this day.A true gentleman who will be missed by all who knew him.I looked up to Mr Hudgens, I am and always will be proud of the man I called Uncle Jr….
    Prayers and condolences to all,
    James Dewey Hudgens Jr.

    Some of my favorite memories of Nanny and Grandpa’s porch include Uncle Jr. He would bring in bushels of harvest and sit on the steps to chat. I learned to snap beans because of his baskets.. I always did and always will believe that he was the most handsome man I’ve ever seen.
