McALESTER — James “Jim” Eugene Hudson, 67, of McAlester, died Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014, at his home.

Born Jan. 30, 1947, in Blanco, he was the son of Charles Eugene Hudson and Lucille Rollings. He grew up and attended school in Savanna.

He married Diane Sharp on Oct. 15, 1975, in Ponca City.

He was a professional musician who played at many venues in Oklahoma and even recorded some of his own music in Nashville, Tenn.
