Sean Aaron Hudson(1983 - 2017)

Sean Aaron Hudson, of Milford, passed away Saturday, June 17, 2017 at his residence.

Mr. Hudson was born on May 5, 1983 to Keith and Terri Hudson at Milford Memorial Hospital.

After graduating in 2001 from Milford Senior High School, he attended Frostburg State University, where he graduated with honors with a degree in computer science. While at Frostburg, Sean became a founding brother of the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity.

Sean worked for Milford Parks and Recreation before being hired by Harrington Police Department in 2010. He attended Wilmington Police Academy, graduating in August 2010, at which time he was honored with an academic award for having achieved the second highest grades in his class. In 2012, Harrington Police Department awarded him with the "Officer of the Year" award.

Sean left Harrington in 2016 to work for the Milford Police Department. In December 2016, Officer Hudson was recognized by Chief Kenneth Brown for his successful life-saving efforts and was promoted to PFC on Feb. 14, 2017.

He was a member of the NRA, Bridgeville Rifle and Pistol Club, Southern Sportsman Association, General Teamsters Local 326 and an associate member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police.

Sean loved watching the New York Yankees, the Washington Redskins and was a big fan of the University of Wisconsin Badgers, which was very close to his heart due to his grandfather being from Wisconsin. Most of all, he loved spending time with his family.

Sean was preceded in death by his grandparents, William and Corinne Kohel, Pete and Gertrude Hudson and his special uncle and aunt, Frank and Marilyn Jefferson.

He is survived by his loving wife Sara Hudson (nee Thomas) and his nine-month-old son Parker, whom he was extremely proud of.
