David “Stan” Stanley Hudson, 88, passed away Tuesday, January 16, 2018. Stan was born August 10, 1929 in East Flat Rock, NC to the late Earl G. and Mamie McClure Hudson. In addition to his parents, Stan was preceded in death by his sisters Ruth Hudson Sinclair, Barbara Hudson Johnson, and Helen Hudson Drummond.

During his ten years of service in the United States Navy, he married the love of his life and wife of 65 years, Margaret Janette Brady Hudson. Stan later served as an officer in the Hendersonville Police Department, and eventually retired from State Farm Insurance Company.

Stan was an active member of First Baptist Church in Hendersonville for fifty years. He served as a deacon, and sang in the choir for most of that time. “Mr. Stan” was much beloved by the first grade Sunday School classes he worked with. He and his wife also enjoyed working with The Sound Of Singing Youth and chaperoning their choir tours. Always a motorcycle enthusiast, Stan, with Jan riding behind, rode all over the United States and Canada on their Honda Goldwing. He enjoyed photography and had thousands of slides to prove it.

Stan was a devoted husband and father. He is survived by his adoring wife Jan, his three sons, Joel Hudson of Asheville, Jeff Hudson and wife Rhonda Williams Hudson of Hendersonville, and David Hudson and wife Tonya Baldwin Hudson of Mills River, four grandchildren, Jessica Rizo, Joshua Hudson, Seth Hudson, and Abbigail Hudson, and seven great-grandchildren. Stan and Jan passed on a strong legacy of faith in God and devotion to each other.

A memorial service will be held at 3:00 pm on Saturday, January 20, 2018, at First Baptist Church in Hendersonville, with visitation beginning at 2:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations in Stan’s memory be made to Four Seasons Compassion for Life Foundation, 571 South Allen Road, Flat Rock, NC.
