Jud was an avid outdoorsman and loved hunting and fishing. He was a dedicated husband, father, and grandfather. His best times were spent in a boat or a deer stand with his grandchildren. He was the hardest worker and took pride in taking care of his family and everyone around him. He enjoyed boiling seafood for his family. He was a quiet man with an infectious smile that would light up a room.
The family would like to thank the oncology team and favorite doctor, Dr. Nakia Brooks at Ocshner Main in Jefferson, LA., and to all the staff who assisted Jud and family at Haydel Memorial Hospice.
Jud will be dearly missed by his many family and friends; never forgotten and always and forever loved.
