John “J.T.” Hudgins, passed away in Nashville, TN, on February 14, 2024. He was born on December 24, 1946, to William Noah and Lillie Pearl Hudgins.

J.T. and his brother Bill were the proud owners and operators of Hudgins Disposal, a company they established in 1962. Throughout the years, J.T.'s dedication and hard work helped build a successful business that served the community.

Outside of work, J.T. lived a life full of simple pleasures and laughter. A giver at heart, he found joy in making others smile. His sense of humor was legendary among those fortunate enough to share moments with him.

J.T. had many interests that fueled his spirit. He attending car shows, where he marveled at the beauty and craftsmanship of automobiles. Tinkering under the hood of his beloved 1973 Camaro and 1956 Chevy Bel Air was a source of genuine happiness for him. In earlier years, he could be found hunting, enjoying a round of golf and riding motorcycles. 

Amongst all these activities, one theme remained constant: family time held an essential place in J.T.'s heart. Traveling with his wife and creating memories that will forever be cherished. Whether boating or fishing at their lakehouse, J.T. enjoyed being outdoors.
