===Roy Harold Scherer===
 
Rock Hudson's father was Roy Harold Scherer born [[Jun 3]], 1899.  In 1924 Roy married Catherine "Kay" Wood and they had one child called then Roy Harold Scherer, Jr, but who would later be known as Rock Hudson.
 
 
It's unclear why he is called Raymond in the 1930 census, but his SSDI entry calls him Roy and biographers have since called him Roy as well.
 
 
When Rock Hudson was a small boy, Roy deserted the family and moved to California.  Meanwhile Kay started dating Wally FitzGerald.  They eventually married and Rock Hudson would now be known as Roy FitzGerald.  It was under this name that he was discharged from the U.S. Navy in 1946 and decided to relocate to California to persue his dream of being an actor.  At first he lived with his father in Long Beach, but after a short time he moved out.
 
 
Roy married thirdly Edith unknown who died shortly before he did.  Sara Davidson tells the story that Roy was mentally gone in his old age.  His last wife died and he thought she was sleeping, someone else determined that she had died.  Roy had an adopted daughter with whom he lived for a short time.  It's unclear if he died at her home.
