Harold Hudson - April 21, 2014

Harold Henry Hudson was born Aug. 17, 1953, to Harold Hudson Sr. and Virginia (Lurch) Hudson in Billings, Mont. He died April 21, 2014, at the age of 60, in Fort Morgan after losing his battle to cancer.

Harold married Christy Sandage on Sept. 8, 2003, in Haxtun, and to this union, one son, Tyler, was born. Harold was a truck driver for over 40 years.

Harold loved to collect old Ford trucks and then get them fixed up. He found value in things others would call junk. He loved being with his family, riding his trike and playing cards and was always ready for a little gambling whenever it could be worked in.

Harold was preceded in death by his parents, Harold Hudson Sr. and Virginia Hudson; and a sister, Virginia Hudson.

Harold is survived by his wife, Christy Hudson of Haxtun; nine children, Shawn Hudson of Hammond, Ore., Virginia Graham and husband Billy of Vancouver, Wash., Barbara Rodriguez and husband Miguel of Fort Morgan, William Hudson of Haxtun, Pamela Hudson of Haxtun, Amber Contreras and husband Caleb of Thornton, Kevin Shultheiss of Thornton, Jamie White and husband Christopher of Foster City, Calif., and Tyler Hudson of Haxtun; grandkids and great-grandkids; and many other relatives and friends.

A Celebration of Life service was held April 24 at the Haxtun Community Center.

Baucke Funeral Home handled the arrangements.
