Douglas Dean Hudson

December 7, 2020


Early Monday morning, December 7th, Douglas Dean Hudson, husband and father of two, quietly passed away at the age of 69. Dean was born on May 29th,1951 to two wonderful parents, Vernon Dee and Mary Jane (Deain) Hudson in Flora, Illinois.

Dean grew up in Urbana, IL where he met Pam and they married on January 12,1969 and remained together for nearly 52 years. Dean spent most of his life working with his family at Jenkins and Key Moving and Storage; he drove a semi for 41 years. They raised two children, Steve and Jennifer.

Dean was a generous man and a great friend. He was especially loving to animals and children. He was one of the best at anything he did, notably as an athlete. He was quiet and kind, smart and reserved, and a poetic writer. He was light on his feet, forgiving, and without judgment. His door always remained open.

Dean was preceded in death by his parents, Vernon and Mary Jane; his twin sister, Dorris Jean; and his beloved dog, Lucy. He is survived by his wife, Pam; his son Steve and his three children, James, Tyson and Alyssa; his daughter Jennifer and her wife Sarah and their expected daughter. He will live forever in their hearts.

At this time, there will be no service to protect the safety of people during this time. His immediate family will gather to celebrate his life. If anyone would like to send flowers or condolences, please send to: 2410 E. Main Street No. 11, Urbana, IL., 61802 Online condolences:
