Judd was born in Rogersville, TN on November 27, 1935, and raised in Knoxville, TN where he graduated from Central High School and became the first person in his family to graduate from college. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from The University of Tennessee in 1957. A Vol for life, he proudly sported the Rocky Top fight song, played by the UT Pride of the Southland Band, as his ringtone.

An avid woodworker, Judd enjoyed building furniture, birdhouses, and décor in his workshop at home. He and Betty loved attending craft shows with their projects. They spent their retirement years visiting historical places, crafting, and loving on their children and four grandkids.

He is survived by his children Linda Webb McDougald and Tommy Webb and their spouses Harold McDougald and Vicki Dennis Webb; his grandchildren James and Emily McDougald, and Laura and Hayley Webb; his brother and sister-in-law Hugh and Barbara Webb; and his nieces Patty Webb Russell and Jane Webb Johannes and their respective families.
