Marvin R. Hudson, 89

Marvin R. Hudson, 89 “Marv” died on Monday, May 4, 2020 at home.

He was born in Ehrenfeld, Pennsylvania, grew up in Cresson, PA. and settled to New Jersey after receiving his Bachelors of Arts from The Pennsylvania State University.

Marvin was employed by the Ford Motor Company as the Scheduling Supervisor for 40 years, retiring in 1992. He was a member of the Penn State Alumni Association and served as Past Master Mason of the Lafayette Lodge No. 27 F. &  A. M.

An avid fan of Penn State Football, Duke Basketball, NY Yankees and the Pittsburgh Steelers, Marv also enjoyed playing golf, but his true enjoyment was spending time with his family which meant everything to him. He was incredibly proud and thankful to watch his grandkids play baseball, graduate college and start their next chapter in their adult lives.

He will be fondly remembered for how particular he was with his beautiful hair, his corny “dad jokes” as well as his Chibougamau fishing stories. He had a smile for everyone.

Predeceased by his parents, Jennie and George Hudson; sisters, Beulah and Lila Hudson and brother and his wife, George Jr. and June Hudson, surviving are his loving wife of 52 years, Lucy (Demico) Hudson of South Plainfield; daughter, Jennie Ann (Hudson) Spear and her husband Wesley A. II of Bridgewater; son, John J. Hudson of South Plainfield and grandsons, Wesley A. III and Daniel Spear both of Bridgewater. Also surviving are his sister in-law, Diana (Demico) Gallo of South Plainfield and many nieces and nephews.

Marv will be laid to rest in his family plot at Holy Redeemer Cemetery, South Plainfield.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the South Plainfield Rescue Squad, 2520 Plainfield Avenue, South Plainfield, NJ 07080.
