Hudson Lee Curren, one year old infant son of Charles and Katherine (Sampsel) Curren, passed away peacefully Saturday, August 31, 2019 at his home in Shelby surrounded by his family and loved ones.
Born on July 24, 2018 at the OSU Wexner Hospital in Columbus he fought a long, brave struggle with mitochondrial disease.
