DAVIDSON, Hugh Hanson May 27, 1930 - July 14, 2014 Beloved Uncle of Linda, Wendy, Barbara, Suzanna, Cynthia, and James; Great Uncle, (emphasis on the great) of Gabrielle, Allyson, Jennifer, David, Adrienne, Lisa, Diana, Jeremy, Sedona and Lexington; Great Grand Uncle of nine others, all of whom he knew and cherished. Predeceased by his dear sisters Anna, Janice, and Claire. How we will miss our champion of all the arts! The family wishes to acknowledge the Victoria Symphony Orchestra, Hugh's other family in Victoria, all his extended family in Canada, the United States, Britain and Switzerland and his numerous friends and colleagues in arts communities across Canada. We mourn the passing of a passionate, brilliant man who created a life of magnificent variety and beauty in work, relationships and spiritual searching. He has been our guiding light. The family is grateful for the excellent care Hugh received during his last months of illness from Zig Hancyk, his doctors and the staff at the Royal Jubilee Hospital. Hugh's vast friendship network was a source of loving inspiration and connection for him. A service of remembrance will be held in Victoria, BC, at St. John the Divine Anglican Church on Tuesday, August 5th, at 2 pm, reception to follow. All of Hugh's friends are welcome. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Victoria Foundation Hugh Davidson Fund or an arts organization of your choice. Condolences may be offered to the family at
