    WC and Cindy were our neighbors for years and friends for a lifetime. Their boys and our children are the same ages. WC was a giving, caring person. He always led by example. Through his many years of coaching at GBI and Pop Warner he has impacted the lives of many young men in a positive way. He was definitely a great representative and leader in the Garner community. Prayers for Cindy and the family during this very difficult time

  2. Tom

    We are all feeling despondent right now due to W.C’s homecoming. A better family in Garner does not exist. Our thoughts and prayers will continue for the Hudson family.

  10. Angel McClain George

    W.C. always provided a welcomed personal facet to our hectic, professional lives. Whether a quick chat about NCSU football or McDonald’s coffee, each interaction was met with friendliness. We will keep his family in prayer & will miss him dearly.

  11. Ray and Ann Adcock

    Ray and I are so saddened by your loss. We remember W.C. as a handsome and polite young
    man and enjoyed watching how much he had grown each year at the Adcock family reunions.
    He was the most adorable ring bearer in the wedding of Vena and Joe and our daughter, Lisa,
    was the flower girl.
    Our love to Clarence, Cindy and the rest of his family.
    Ray and Ann Adcock
