Ray Shawn Hudson, Sr.

March 3, 1990 ~ June 11, 2018 (age 28)

Ray Shawn Hudson, Sr., Ray Shawn “Baby Ray” Hudson, Jr. and Maya Rivera

It’s been two long weeks but seems like it was yesterday when we saw Maya, Baby Ray and Ray Shawn, Sr. charming smiling faces. “The family is still having a hard time facing reality because we had faith and hopes of them coming home,” said a family member. We all miss them so much just expression of words can’t be explained.

Ray Shawn had importance in so many lives. He held so many titles; he was a son, grandson, father, brother, nephew, cousin, friend, very hard worker and he would even lend his shoulder for anyone needing help to lean on. Ray Shawn was expected to graduate with his associate degree in welding this summer which he worked hard for. He had plans and dreams of getting his family a nice home.

Ray Shawn was employed at the Port of Freeport as a driver, latcher and helper. He worked so hard that the foreman’s would argue over who’s group he would work with. He was also an excellent hard working landscaper whom he learned the trade from his loving father, Chawn Hudson, Sr. Ray Shawn was of great importance on his family ranch. He would ride and break new horses and also make sure everyone had everything they needed before riding. He would also move hay in the field, load, unload horses and cow feed for the ranch. All three of them played their roles on the ranch. The family and them would travel far to trail rides and rodeos as a family.

Ray Shawn loved his family and loved Maya so much. He always made sure both of their cars stayed clean, he would always attend his children soccer and basketball games. Ray Shawn would take Baby Ray to school at Tiny Treasures, pick him up and then help Baby Ray with his homework. He was also teaching Baby Ray how to mow grass and play drums like his father taught him. Baby Ray had big dreams of becoming a bull rider. He would get on barrels and put his hands in the air and act if he was riding a big bull. Baby Ray, with his unique beautiful curly hair, is going to be missed by many such as grandparents, uncles, aunts, family, friends and Rosco (the family blue pitbull).

Ray Shawn bought Rosco as a puppy while Maya was pregnant with Baby Ray because he wanted them to grow up together said a family member. Baby Ray loved soccer and sweets. Maya was also very loved by the family. When she didn’t show up with Ray Shawn the family would ask “Where is Maya and Baby Ray?” Maya would offer her signature massages to people, family and even the horses. She also loved to cook and eat.

Ray Shawn would make time on Sunday’s to take his family to church in Fresno to give God time, following spending quality time with “Granny”.

Both families would like to thank everyone for their support during this difficult time. All three of them will truly, truly be missed.  ~ The Hudson Family
