After a prolonged illness, Dick died Apr. 13, 1999. His generosity, charm, and, above all, loyalty to school and college friends enriched the lives of all who knew him. He is sorely missed. Dick left us with the belief that helping those we love try to solve their problems can prove immensely frustrating, but we must never stop trying.
Dick was born in Minneapolis and was raised there and in Concord, Mass. He prepared at Noble and Greenough. At Princeton, he majored in history and played varsity hockey for two years and with his close friend, classmate Fritz Cammerzell, managed the varsity football team all four years,. He was a member of Tiger Inn (a tweenie) and the Right Wing Club, and lived in senior year in Patton Tower with Bruce Buchanan, Amos Eno, Larry Stanford, and Fritz.
After Princeton, Dick taught and coached at independent schools in New England and New York for several years before moving first to the San Francisco Bay Area, then to Portland, and finally Scottsdale. An avid sportsman, he was at various times a dedicated long-distance runner, enthusiastic tennis player, and aspiring golfer, but always a long-suffering Boston Red Sox fan.
The class extends its deepest sympathies to his parents, Joan and Reginald deKoven Hudson '40, his sister Kathy, and brothers Bill '74 and Charles.
