He was 6 feet, 5 inches tall and friends describe him as a man who was big in stature. He is also described as kind-hearted and a fine officer.  He was simply a nice guy. 

The Hudson Police Department is deeply in mourning over the death of their brother and acknowledge his contribution to the safety of this city.

William is survived by many loving friends and family members including his parents and his brother who will forever miss him.

Thank you for your service to the public, William.

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and gone the next.

Pray that William is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
