Charles Ashley Hudson, age 45, of Wilmington passed away Tuesday, February 2, 2016 at Lower Cape Fear Hospice and LifeCareCenter after a courageous battle with cancer.

Chuck was known best for his dedication and love for music. While here in the Port City of Wilmington he has played drums for over 25 local bands and had been instrumental in the field of sound engineering for events. He owned and operated his own company Sound Chuck Audio which afforded him the ability to give the bands around town a fantastic stage presence. Chuck loved the Carolina Panthers, playing and listening to the music of the Grateful Dead, camping and canoeing, and most of all spending time in the company of loving family and devoted friends. His passion for all things music and wonderful spirit will be deeply missed by all.

Left to cherish his memory and musical legacy are his mother, Caroland Hudson McFarlane and husband Larry; father, Dwight Harrod; brothers, Nick and Devin McFarlane; sister, Tracy Harrod; numerous loving aunts, uncles, family and friends.

A memorial mass will be held at 10:00 AM Saturday, February 6, 2016 at St. Mary Catholic Church on Ann Street in Downtown Wilmington, NC. A reception will follow at the church.
