Stu Hodgson - A Gracious & Tall ManSaturday, December 19, 2015
I have photographed many politicians, CEOs, etc but one of the most gracious in my memory was Stu Hodgson. I knew him as head of the BC Ferries Corporation. I was assigned to photograph him by Vancouver Magazine many years ago. I met up with him in transit to Victoria. He was very tall and looking down on me with a big smile he asked me, “How do you like my ferry?” Coming from this man it was not presumptuous in the least. He was genuinely proud of his ships.
About ten years after I photographed him I saw him gassing up at a station on 41st and Granville. He spotted me and came up to me and asked me,"How are you Alex?"
Stu Hodgson died yesterday.
