James “Kirk” Hudson, 51, passed from this life on October 13, 2020 peacefully at the John R. Williamson Hospice House following a lengthy illness.

He was born on February 10, 1969 in El Dorado to Jimmy Hudson and Vicki Flournoy. Kirk formally worked for the City of El Dorado and presently owned Hudson’s Golf Cart.

Kirk faced his journey with cancer with unbelievable faith, endurance and perseverance. He has been an inspiration to his family, friends, customers, nurses and all that have come in contact with him. If you ever spent any time with Kirk, you have heard these words, “If you don’t have the Good Lord, family and friends, then you don’t have anything”. Those words could not be more true and were evident in the life Kirk lived.

He was a man of Strong faith. He loved the outdoors. He was an avid hunter and fisherman, and he loved fellowship with family and friends in the bay.

Kirk was known as Son, Husband, Dad, Papaw, Cuz and Uncle Kirk. He will be missed by so many, but we know by faith in the Lord, we will see him again.

Survivors include his loving wife of 34 years, Kristie Hudson; son, Joshua Hudson (Holly) of El Dorado; daughter, Madison Parker (Jesse) of Parkers Chapel; sister, Mona Murray of Hot Springs; brothers, Jonathan Hudson (Haley) of El Dorado, Lance Flournoy of El Dorado; and two beautiful granddaughters, Aubree Clair Parker and Emma Hudson both of El Dorado.

He is preceded in death by his step-father, Jimmy Flournoy, brother, Tony Hudson; and unborn grandbaby, Parker.

The family would like to thank the nurses at hospice for their kindness and gentle care during this process.

Visitation was held from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at Young’s Funeral Directors.

Funeral services will be 2:00 p.m. Thursday, October 15, 2020 at West Side Baptist Church. Burial will follow at Rhodes Chapel Cemetery under the direction of Young’s Funeral Directors.

Memorial donations may be made to the John R. Williamson Hospice House, 2301 Champagnolle Rd., El Dorado, AR 71730, #teamcorrie Cancer Foundation, 145 Parker Drive, El Dorado, AR 71730, or Parkers Chapel First Baptist Church, 3816 Oleta Ave. El Dorado, AR 71730.

It saddens me by the passing of Kirk, he was one of the many Parkers Chapel boys that spent time at our home with Rodney and Ashley. He always was so sweet and polite, he will be dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Well Kirk, you fought it long and hard and made many memories for all of us left behind. You were such an inspiration to so many of us and you will truly be missed. You hold a special place in our hearts as we watched you grow into the great man you became. We have always felt that you were one of our children. We love you like you were one of ours. It is with great sorrow that we say farewell and not good bye, as we know that you are without pain and in a better place and that we will see you again when we all get to the Promised Land. Until then, rest in peace in the arms of Jesus!
