MARION COUNTY, Miss.–If you’ve ever looked for a deal at Hudson’s Salvage, then you know the work of Mickey Hudson, the company’s CEO. Hudson died Saturday in a Mobile hospital from injuries he got when the Columbia tornado hit his car two days before Christmas.
Marion County Coroner Norma Williamson told WLBT that Hudson refused treatment when his car was hit by the twister and he was tossed around. He later decided to go to the hospital.
He died there at 3:30 Saturday morning.
Hudson opened his first store in Tylertown in 1965 and served as CEO until his death.
He was also well known as a supporter of USM Golden Eagle athletics.
The funeral is set for 10 a.m. Tuesday in Hattiesburg.
