Alphonso Hudson Sr. was born in October of 1911. Hudson resides at the Lake Park Nursing Home in Madison. His family is shaping up to be a family reunion to celebrate the patriarch of the Hudson family.
If you had a conversation with Hudson, he could tell you events leading back to his childhood and has the memory of a child that is just mind-boggling to everyone.
“A lot of things have changed in 100 years,” says Hudson.
When you ask Hudson what led him to a long fulfilling life, he will say, “It’s a number of things.”
He often jokes with others and says that people are indeed jealous of his genes, and at the age of 100, he has every right to feel that way.
Hudson gets frequent visits from family and friends at the nursing home, and every time they are greeted with a welcoming smile and a warm heart. When visited by his grandchildren, he makes it a point to show them off to all the nursing staff and other residents at the nursing home.
With 100 years under his belt, he looks forward to the next years to come.Hudson was born on October 27 and married Bettie Lee Hudson (deceased) in 1934. They were married for 68 years and together they had five boys: Tony (deceased), Bishop, Lemmie, Cary, and Alphonso Jr.
He also has a host of grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great great grandchildren.
Happy 100th birthday, Alphonso Hudson, Sr.
