Roger D. Hudson, the longtime owner of Hudson Plumbing, has died, a family member confirmed with Sapulpa Times today. He was 65.
Roger was the youngest of seven children, and like his father and older brother, worked as a plumber after high school. He studied hard and worked harder, growing up in a home where strong Christian values and hard work ethics were “a way of life.” He married his wife in 1975, and they had just celebrated 45 years together.
Roger’s family says he was an “extremely generous man” his entire life, and was proud to have his children working for him, but he demanded the same excellence and worth ethic he’d be raised with, calling it “The Hudson Way.” His Hudson Plumbing business was started in 1983, and under Roger’s leadership, grew to include heating and air conditioning, and enjoyed nearly 40 years of success.
