Not sure what to say?

Stuart Hodgson has left a lasting impression here in the North. He will not be forgotten.

My sincere condolences to his family - Mr. Hodgson was a very distinguished man and I'm privileged to have met him during his BC Transit days. Rest in peace, Sir.

I'm saddened to learn of "the Commissioner's" passing. He was one incredible man! I first met him late in 1968 when I was hired, by one of his female managers, to work for the GNWT. I feel so blessed, honoured and grateful for having known him and working in his office when required. May he rest in peace after a life so well-lived. My deepest condolences to Eugene, Lyn and their families. Caron [formerly Brewer]

I am so sad to hear of Stuart's passing. I am thinking of you and will be in touch.(I have moved to Hartney and my new phone number is 204-858-2210). Love Jean Agnew

This is terribly sad news to hear of Stu's passing. It ends the career of one of the most exciting and adventurous Canadians to have been part of this nation. We, who were members of the RCMP concert Band travelled the length and breadth of Canada as we celebrated the Force's Centennial in 1973 but it was in Jan. of that year that Stu pulled off a coup that none of us will ever forget. Flying into Yellowknife on a charter 737 along with Gov. Gen. and Mrs. Mitchener we found ourselves in...

The body of the story is with Karen, Gene and the boys but quote 'The last time I saw Great Aunt Thelma she gave me Stuarts photograph saying "this belongs to you now. You try and find your wolf song and Uncle Stu" A year later she died. Meeting him fulfilled a promise I had made to Thelma but also which I had made to myself. I met a very dear and special man who will always have a warm place in my heart and thoughts'. God Bless You Uncle Stu. Debbie Greening, Kingston upon Hull,...

Stuart was also Honourary Canada Lands Surveyor #2. I first met Stuart when I was an Alderman in Sechelt in 1982 or 1983 and he was the Chairman of the BC Ferry Corporation. He came to a meeting in Sechelt to discuss BC Ferries and their schedules. I had done my homework and given him a viable ferry schedule that worked equally as well as theirs, and maybe even better. He invited me to his office any time I was going to be in Vancouver so I took him up on it one day. We went for lunch in...

I am saddened to read of the passing of Stuart Hodgson. He was an incredible character, full of good humor and kindly regards for all who knew him. As a security officer serving at Citizenship and Immigration Office in Vancouver, I had the honor of serving him in his duties as a citizenship judge. During that time we discovered that he and I had a lot in common. Like him I worked in the forest industry of B.C. and was a member of the International Woodworkers of America. He often told me...
