David Roger Hudson
July 29, 1953 — December 29, 2021 (Age 68)
On Wednesday, December 29, 2021, David Roger Hudson of Conway, South Carolina went to be with The Lord with his family by his side.
David was born on July 29, 1953 in Toledo, Ohio, and raised in nearby Findlay, where he graduated from Findlay High School. He was a veteran of the United States Navy. After his service, he began a career as an insurance broker, working in the Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, Maine, and South Carolina markets over the course of his career. He met his wife Danielle at a holiday party organized by his work colleagues in 1992.
Being outdoors was something David enjoyed. As a youth, he ran track, and as an adult he played the occasional game of golf. His true passion, however, was keeping his yard immaculate, something he dedicated innumerable hours to over the course of his life. When not outdoors, he enjoyed reading and watching movies with his family. David was an avid University of Michigan football fan. He was a lifelong member of the Lutheran Church.
David moved to South Carolina in 2016 in order to be closer to family, and enjoyed being able to spend quality time with them.
David was preceded in death by his parents, Duane and Thana Hudson, his brother James, and his father-in-law Jonathan Petry. He is survived by his wife Danielle (Petry); son Dustin (Pilar); brother John (Sherry) and sister Janet Crotts (Elton); mother-in-law Patricia Petry along with siblings-in-law Jonathan (Kim), Morgan, and Michelle Petry; nephews and nieces Jennifer (Eirik Felter), Brian (Raymond Scruggs), and Mark (Kelli Schroeder), Tracie Peterson (Christian), Joel Cutlip (Jessica Tyler), Alex, Conner, and Ryan Petry; grandchildren Sophia and Valentina; step-grandchildren Siria, Enrique, and Veronica Aparicio; and numerous grandnephews, grandnieces, and great-grandnephews.
