Wallace Earl Hudson, age 87, of Marietta, Georgia, passed away on June 8, 2018. He was born on September 3, 1930 in Atlanta, Georgia to John H. Hudson, Sr. and Helen Clare Medlock Hudson.

He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Peggy Breithaupt Hudson of Marietta, daughter Debbie Hudson of Snellville, son Mike Hudson of Cartersville, brother in law Charles Breithaupt of Clayton and several nieces and nephews and their children. Mr. Hudson grew upon Gordon Street in Atlanta and Ferncliff Road in Buckhead. He was a 1950 graduate of North Fulton High School. He served in the Air National Guard during the Korean War where he maintained the photography equipment on airplanes. He began a career in sales which lead to owning his own businesses, General Rubber and Plastics, Custom Seal Corporation and Techni-kit International. Along with his late partner, Bernie Gee and a small group of devoted employees, they worked together for many years. He was a former member of Cobb County Radio Control model airplane club and he served as both a Cub Scout and Boy Scout leader. Both of Wallace’s older brothers were career Air Force officers and he loved flying planes as much as they did. He eventually owned his own small aircraft. He enjoyed photography throughout his life from working at Camera Service in Atlanta in the 1950’s and his military service to capturing many family events over the years. He enjoyed cooking, creating his own recipes and sitting down to good barbeque. The family will receive guests for visitation between the hours of 5:00pm – 8:00pm on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at H. M.
