Obituary: Hudgens

Dr. Glenn Hudgens, a beloved healer, devoted family man, and community stalwart, peacefully passed away on December 20, 2023 in Carmel, California. 

The oldest of four boys he was born on August 22, 1934, in Anna, IL, he was 89 years old.  Glenn's life was a testament to love, dedication, and a commitment to the well-being of others.  He was the cherished husband of Mary (MC) Hudgens, his high school sweetheart, with whom he recently celebrated an incredible 63rd wedding anniversary.

A scholar and a compassionate physician, Glenn completed his undergraduate studies at Southern Illinois University before graduating from the University of Illinois-Chicago Medical School in 1961.  He then completed his residency, the following year at Resurrection Hospital in Park Ridge, IL.  The year after, at the age of 28, his journey in medicine continued to Fairbury, IL, where he initially opened his practice.  After ten years of developing his medical practice in Fairbury, Glenn and MC made a significant move that marked a new chapter in their lives.  In 1972, they relocated to the scenic shores of Carmel, CA where he continued his medical practice, quickly becoming an integral part of the local healthcare landscape.

Glenn and MC were blessed with four children, Tom (North Carolina), Mark (deceased), Laura (San Diego), and Brian (Monterey) along with 7 grandchildren.

A memorial service will take place on Saturday, January 13, 2024 at 3pm at the Carmel Presbyterian Church.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be made to the Carmel Presbyterian Church in Glenn's honor.
