HUDSON, William Robinson Sept. 07, 1937 Sept. 16, 2020 William Robinson Hudson, of Cumming, formerly of Tucker, Georgia went home to his beloved Savior on September 16, 2020 surrounded by his children. William was a devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather with a larger than life, spirited personality. His greatest love was his family who he taught to always put God and family first. His other great passion was his love of sports. As an avid player and coach of 50 years, he unselfishly mentored countless children and young adults not only by teaching them the fundamentals of the game but more importantly by sharing his faith in God and values in life. His legacy will continue on through the generations of lives he impacted. William Robinson Hudson was born in Biloxi, Mississippi on September 7, 1937. He graduated in 1953 from Murphy High School in Mobile, Alabama. He then served in the United States Navy until 1959.

Just learned of Bill’s passing. He coached my daughter and helped her with so much if the game. He was an amazing man and coach and we appreciate all he did. He told us many stories and his love for his family was always number one. Thank you for sharing him.
