John Wiley “Johnny” Hudson, was called to his heavenly home on Thursday, July 20, 2023. He was born August 1, 1947, to Henry and Mary Hudson.

He was a life long resident of Bogata, Texas where he never met a stranger, greeted all with a smile and a how are you. 

Johnny attended Bogata School where he graduated in 1965. He served in the United States Army from 1968 to 1970. He was an avid lifetime member of the Bogata Rodeo Association.

He married Deborah Spencer on October 6, 1972 and enjoyed 50 years of marriage and rodeo adventures.
