Besides dedicating his life to his business, he passionately loved spending time with his family and to be outdoors. From work to play, everything was outside. He loved to fly fish in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia, garden, play golf and tennis. Every morning before he came down to his office he spent time on the glass patio watching the birds and deer in the back yard as he drank his coffee. He especially loved driving, camping, and working on his Volkswagens.

Carol, Trevor & Elizabeth, Bootie and I offer you our sympathy and prayers. We pray that God will comfort you in your time of loss.
I will always remember Greg and especially when I step on a tennis court. Greg, others and I played tennis together for 25+ years. We had many years of fun and which at times (not many) turned into arguments and loud voices.
Several years ago, Greg and I drove to Florida to watch spring exhibition baseball. We had a great time, but spending that much time together in a car led to some frayed nerves and short tempers. Nothing that friends don’t do when spending too much time together. We stopped in Hilton Head, SC for two nights on the way back and Greg was able to visit Elizabeth in Charleston.
A good man and friend has left us, but never to be forgotten. I will miss Greg.

Our sincere condolences to Carol, Trevor & Liz. Patty & I will truly miss Greg with his smile, kindness and wit. His quick, dry humor was always a source of entertainment and usually led to vibrant discussions. And if more than a month or two passed without Greg acquiring another new vehicle, we would ask "what's wrong?". Greg was a true friend, neighbor and a person we could always count on when in need. We will sorely miss him.

My condolences to the Hudson family during your time of loss. I will always remember Mr. Hudson driving Trevor and I to the movies to watch the remastered versions of the original Star Wars before we could drive. I know he really enjoyed the outdoors, had some cool hobbies, and loved his family dearly.
Praying for peace and comfort for the family.
