Joseph John Hudson, 83, of Medford, NJ passed away peacefully on January 4, 2024. In heaven he will be reunited with his loving wife of 59 years, Darylene Edith (Bell) Hudson. Dedicated father to Theresa “Terri” Hudson, Karen Wick (Matt) and Joseph Hudson (Kelly). Beloved Pop-pop to Zachary (Melanie), Lauren, Brian, Kaylee, Hank, Riley, and Benjamin, and great-grandfather to Kylie Belle and Kira Noelle. Pre-deceased by his siblings Francis, Celeste, and Marguerite. Survived by his brother John, as well as many nieces, extended family, and forever friends.
Joe was born and raised in Atlantic City, NJ, attended Holy Spirit High School, where he was a 3-sport athlete, and began his college career as a basketball player at Monmouth University. He met the love of his life at Guarantee Bank before they moved to Oaklyn, NJ, eventually settling in Medford in the early 1970s. Not only did Joe work hard for his own education, working many jobs while going to night school to graduate from Rutgers, he also contributed to the academic careers of all of his children and grandchildren. Joe earned his CPCU certificate and was a well-known, successful executive in the insurance industry. As hard as he worked is equivalent to how hard he played. Joe was proud of his family and loved spoiling them. His crazy sense of humor, which included loud off-key shower solos, always kept everyone laughing and smiling. A perfect weekend for Joe involved a round of golf with friends, a good meal, a glass of wine, and a nice cigar followed by a hot, relaxing day on the beach in Ocean City surrounded by his family. Joe will forever be remembered for the love and generosity he bestowed on his family and friends.
