William C. “Bill” Hudgins, 92, died at his home in Port Haywood on Thursday, Feb. 4, 2021. He retired from the American Oil Refinery in 1985 and had spent his retirement years doing what he loved best, being with his family, working in his garden, fishing gill nets and hunting with his friends.

He is survived by his two sons, Charles Hudgins (Carol) and Allen Hudgins (Connie); two sisters, Gloria Haywood and Lola Hambleton; grandchildren, Angela Mathiason (Paul) and Steve Hudgins (Ginger), and four great-grandchildren.

The family would like to thank At Home Care Hospice and Visiting Angels for their care these past weeks. We would especially like to thank his neighbors and friends who did so much for him these last months which allowed him to continue to live in his home he loved so much.
