  2. We are so sorry to hear the news of John’s passing. We called him two weeks ago and mentioned that we’d try to visit while in the Bartow county area. We are saddened that we missed him. John was such a creative, energetic, intelligent forward-thinking person. May he rest in peace.

    Both he and Glen have given opportunities, guidance, and love to many. Through their work they’ve shown many that challenges can be so rewarding.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the many who’s lives they’ve touched.

  3. So sad to hear of the passing of John. There are so many memories to count. He was such a kind hearted person, a joy to be around and just talk to. We know he and Glen shared themselves with so many people both young and old. Teaching and learning a little from each person he touched. John you will be missed. Thanks for the memories.

  4. I just learned on Christmas Day 2015 that John had passed away. John and my father, also John Hudson, met as freshmen at Georgia Tech. JEL was studying architecture; my Dad, Chemical Engineering. John LaRowe always told me that Dad got him through calculus and chemistry which everyone had to take in those days. John told me many times that if weren’t for my Dad, he would have never made it through Tech. And John and Glenn never forgot my family for as long as they lived. We visited them many times in their home in Doraville and up in the Georgia mountains at the Mark of the Potter. I have fond memories of John wearing a driving cap and blazing around in his Corvair convertible. John was a one-of-a-kind person who was so full of life with a real zeal for everything. We lost track in 2013 and now I know why. John and Glenn will be missed by my sister and I who knew them so well. May the Good Lord whom you loved and worshipped keep you in his arms for all time.
