I just found out recently that Dr. Mudd had passed away. I was his second patient when he started his practice. I was 4 years old at the time and I am 60 now. He use to make house calls when I was little and just on a funny note my duck bit him once when he came to our door to treat me with a severe case of chicken pox. He told my mom that the duck had to go or he would not come back...but he did come back and the duck was still there, but never bit him again. I continued to go to Dr. Mudd until I was 40 at which time I moved to Kentucky. He was a legend and a wonderful doctor. I am so sorry for the families loss.
Loving thoughts and prayers go out to your family.
Dr.Mudd, I was so blessed to have been able to work with you for so many years. You taught me so much and made me who I am today by all the knowledge you had shared with me. We had so many laughs with one another and I loved to just sit down and listen to your stories some funny and others very sad.JP I will truly miss you and will never forget how blessed I was to call you my boss let alone my friend.
Uncle Joe was very special and I experienced his kindness first hand when returning from a weekend in Owensboro for the Boat Races on the river and then our two year old had a bad sunburn. We stopped at Dr. Joe's office and he stopped what he was busy with took excellent care of Mark almost 40 years ago I still deeply appreciate what he did for us.
Uncle Joe, you were special to so many people in so many ways. You will always
be remembered for your grit and outspokenness yet always seasoned with kindness toward folks needing healing. I will miss your smile and the way you would clear your throat before you would give someone some of your sage advice! RIP.
My condolences to my cousins
So sorry to hear this news. Dr. Mudd delivered both of my children and took care of them till they got old enough to choose their own Dr.s. He took care of me 40 years. From day one till the last day I saw him, he never changed. And someone here wrote that he said what he meant, and he did. I could always tell if he was displeased as he had a way of looking at you over his glasses and never even had to say a word at times. I once told him he had to live and practice at least until I died. I am so sorry for your loss. And for ours as well.
My sympathy to all the Mudd family. Dr. Mudd's father delivered 12 of 13 children at home of Alice Whelan Howardstown, KY. My husband and I both saw Dr. Joe Paul Mudd in Clarksville several times in the mid 50"s when Dr. Willner wasn't available. We lived in Jeffersonville.
My sincerest sypathies to the Mudd family. I was fortunate enough to know both Trudy an Dr Mudd and what wonderful people! Prayers are with the family
Dr. Mudd will truly be missed. He was a wonderful doctor and a unique person. I felt safe in his care for more than 32 years. My sympathies are with his family and friends. He will truly be missed.
I will always remember Dr. Mudd. So sorry for his loss. When I would take my
walks around our subdivision, I would always look to see if he was in the yard working and say hello.

To the Mudd Family,
So sorry to hear about your father. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
I love you dad!! I am a Dentist today because of your encouragement and financial support. You gave me a gift that I will share with many, including the family. You taught me many lessons through the years:
~"Money doesn't grow on trees"
~"You made your bed, now lay in it"
~War is ugly
~I can do anything I set my mind to.
~Nothing worth having is easy to obtain.
~Marriages are stronger when there is a common faith in God
~Take regular vacations
I watched you care for our ill mother for 20+years. It had to have broken your heart to see her suffer so. You have had a blessed life and a very difficult one at times and you stayed strong throughout. Although I don't plan to work as long as you did pops, I hope that I can give my patients the wonderful care you gave yours and improve their health and wellbeing. Thank you dad for this and more. I will miss you daddy!
You are in our thoughts. Peace to your family. Barry and DeeAnna Esslinger
He was the last of his clan...the end of an era. May he rest in peace.
