Obituary for Willie James Buie

Mr. Willie James Buie was born on October 25, 1948 in Emanuel County, Georgia to the late Mr. James Buie and the late Ms. Juanita Atkins. He would be the second oldest of five kids. He left Emanuel county at an early age to live in New Jersey with his father. Here is where he spent most of his teenage years and early adulthood. Willie later moved to Long Island, New York working as a sanitation driver for many years.

While living on Long Island, he served on the Ushers Board at Mt. Calvary Baptist Church, where he was a faithful member. He met his beautiful wife, Mrs. Dora Lee Hudson Buie. The two married on June 6, 1992, and in August 1993, they moved to Stillmore, Georgia. He was a devoted husband and father.

During the time that he resided in Stillmore, Willie was a member of First Baptist Church and served proudly on the Usher Board for many years. Willie was also a local logging truck driver up until his illness. He was preceded in death by his wife, Dora Lee Hudson Buie; a younger brother, Jerome Buie; and one son, Maurice.

Willie departed this life on July 2, 2023. He leaves the following to cherish his memory: a loving fiancé, Ms. Annette Smith of Summertown, Georgia; his only daughter, Ms. Krystle Hudson of Antioch, Tennessee; three sons: Mr. Arthur Hudson of Rochester, Minnesota, Mr. Fonda Hudson of Joplin, Missouri, and Mr. Rudy Hudson (Andrea), of Prince George, Virginia; two sisters: Ms. Geneva Williams and Ms. Janice Buie, both of Newark, New Jersey; one older brother, Mr. Ernest Foreman of Cleveland, Ohio; his in-laws: Ms. Catherine Hudson and Ms. Winnie Hudson, both of Bolivar, Tennessee, Mr. Willie James Hudson (Jaqueline) and Mr. Curtis Young (Beverly), both of Memphis, Tennessee, Ms. Ella Hudson, Ms. Nannie Mae Hudson, Mr. Bill Hudson, and Mr. Leon Hudson, all of Nashville, Tennessee, and Ms. Phoebe Hudson of Atlanta, Georgia; he also leaves behind his devoted grandson, JaKhenan, and 13 more beloved grandchildren; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
