BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

One of the founders of Hudson Salvage Center is latest victim of last week's tornados. Mickey Hudson has died. His children let friends know about Mickey's passing in a Facebook post. That post says Mr. Hudson died due to complications from the injuries he suffered when a tornado ripped through Columbia.

Hudson was the CEO of Hudson, Inc., the company that created Hudson's Treasure Hunt and Hudson's Dirt Cheap. He was also a major contributor to the University of Southern Mississippi's athletics department.

The family Facebook post said visitation for Mickey Hudson is Monday at Hulett/Winstead Funeral Home in Hattiesburg. His funeral is Tuesday morning.

Four other people lost their lives when twisters tore through Marion County and Jones County on December 23.
