We go all the way back to Law School. I’ll never forget when Larry Keener told Bill in his early years of practice as a defender of insurance companies that he needed to switch sides because “Bill you don’t have the requisite distain for humanity to be a good civil defense lawyer”. A compliment Bill later took to heart. Thoughts and prayers to his family!

My deepest sympathies to Cynthia and all of Bill’s extended family, friends and community. We have suffered a great loss of a great man. I feel so blessed that Cynthia and Bill were bonus friends as I began my life with Boyce so many years ago. We shared so much together! I am consoled knowing how much happiness, love and peace he found in his life with Cynthia, their children and grandchildren. He will be missed and remembered fondly.

I would assume that Bill Hudson was cut from the same piece of cloth as my good friend David Hudson and that there is much to mourn in his passing. Know that waves of sorrow have reached the Yukon Territory and are acknowledged and shared.
