Jim Hudson (Santa Claus to many) has passed away. For many years Jim portrayed Santa Claus at hundreds of events around the area for many groups. Personally, I got to know Jim when he would come to the Dolphin Restaurant in Northfield (see pictures here) and bring joy (and toys along with little elf/Dolphin owner Sandy Mihalek) to all the area children. Jim has gone home in Heaven to the North Pole in the sky.


Rest in Peace James Hudson! Funeral details below
