August 5, 1933 ~ May 17, 2018

Wilfred "Jim" Hudson of Vancouver, WA, passed away May 17, 2018, at home, with his wife, Sheila, beside him. He was born in Spokane, WA on Aug. 5, 1933.
After graduating from high school, Jim enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and served during the Korean War.
He met Sheila Davidson, student nurse, in Tacoma, WA in July 1954 and married her 7 months later, a marriage which lasted 63 years.
Jim was the fourth generation of railroad men, working for the SP&S and Burlington-Northern railroads for 35 years.
His hobby was making beautiful furniture and clocks out of various kinds of wood, all with his own plans and designs, then generously giving his creations to family and friends.
Jim is survived by his wife, Sheila; daughter, Laurie; son, Mark; and granddaughter, Aidan.
He insisted on no funeral, saying he would prefer to be remembered as a good man and a good friend.

It's been a lot of years, but I have fond memories of when Jim and Sheila would visit my grandparents up in Surfside. Jim and my grandfather John Harbin would talk for hours. He was always a polite gentle man. Rest In Peace Jim.
