On October 28, 1969, Paul Otis Hudson was born in Portland, Oregon to the loving parents Florine and Johnny Leo Hudson, who are currently in heaven.
Paul leaves behind (4) kids, Paul Hudson Jr., Johnny Hudson, Alexis Imbler, Zoria Hudson, (2) step kids Wyomi Kinjo, Asashi Kinjo, (4) grand kids and his woman of 20 plus years, Theresa Glass.... Also, a host of aunties, uncles, cousins, and many friends who loved him dearly.
Sibling: Angela Hudson, Ronae Sweet, Corey Hudson, Kendareen Hudson, not to mention two other brothers Johnny Leo Hudson Jr. (J) and Jimmy Hudson who have already preceded in death.
From the time Paul came into this world he became a ball of fire, a hand of joy and kept a smile that made anyone who encountered him felt like family .... Over the years Paul developed many nick names that others called him, (Pop), (8 ball), and Papa.
Please allow me to share, Mrs. Florine Hudson wanted to go to a "James Brown" concert. But the day of the concert Paul had different plans. He enters the world screaming and crying the day of the concert, which stop his mother plans and that is where he got the name (Popcorn) from because he "Pop" out at the wrong time.... The name (8 ball) came from a lifetime of winning, the name (Papa) came from all of those who he made him feel like family even when they were not. But from his wise words, family is the ones who made you feel good inside and they're for you in a time of need.
Paul Graduated from Jefferson High School worked many odd jobs, and really enjoyed working on cars.
