Jul 13, 1946 – Dec 31, 2017
With deep sorrow we announce his passing on December 31, 2017, at his home in Chase, BC, with love and support from his wife Celia Hudson by his side.
Predeceased by his father Alford Gordon Hudson in 2001.
Eldest son of Violet (Christy) and Alford Hudson of Anglemont, BC, Tom was born July 13, 1946, at Kamloops BC, and grew up with sister Dawn Koch and brother Gordon Hudson in Chase BC. He had many fond memories of his childhood and close family connections.
A graduate of BCIT and member of AScT BC Tom also spent time working for Greyhound Canada and running an Irrigation business with lifetime friend Fraser (Lynne) David. During the build of the Coquihalla Highway, Tom worked as a heavy equipment operator and he drove the steam roller and packed down the road that enters into Kamloops from the Chase side. He retired as a gas fitter working for K-West Mechanical.
Dad was a stoic, practical, patient and loving father who taught many important life skills and passed on his common sense to us kids in his quiet and contemplative style. He made you feel very special when he cooked his pancakes for breakfast. The grandkids know his are the best!
Left to cherish wonderful memories are his mother Violet Hudson and Bill Lempky, wife Celia Hudson (Leanne Sharpe and Dennis Doyle), his 5 children and 8 grandchildren: Gina Davison (Farrell, Liam and Rose Hudson); Michael (Trish) Hudson (Zoe Hudson); Jodi (Steve) James (Sawyer and Ivar James); Amanda (Luke) Towns (Malia and Morgan Towns); Robert Hudson; His brother Gordon (Chris) Hudson (Blaine, Reed and Shawna Hudson) and his sister Dawn Koch (Chris and Laurel Koch),
Private family service to follow in Spring 2018.
