KEITH PANTING HUDSON

Age 97, passed away on October 23, 2011, after a long illness. Mr. Hudson was born in Robin, Idaho, on February 7, 1914, the second son of Parley Robins Hudson and Frances Panting Hudson, and was raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. He earned a B.S. in accounting from the University of Utah in three and a half years, while working to support himself and pay for his education. After his graduation in 1935, he attended graduate school in economics at George Washington University, completing most of the requirements for an M.S. in economics while working as an accountant at the People’s Drug Store in Washington, D.C. He left D.C. to accept a much more responsible administrative post with the Panama Canal Authority during the Third Locks project to expand the canal’s capacity. Following his time in Panama he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and began working for Columbia Steel. During World War II his position there was considered essential to the war effort and rendered him exempt from military service. After the war he became controller of DiGiorgio Fruit Corporation and rose to vice president; in 1965 he accepted the position of vice president in charge of acquisitions for the Dillingham Corporation and moved to Honolulu with his family. He was charged with expanding Dillingham’s capabilities beyond construction and beyond Hawaii, and under his management the company grew from a relatively small corporation to one listed on the New York Stock Exchange. He retired from Dillingham as senior vice president in 1979; following retirement, he continued consulting and serving on the board of Maui Divers of Hawaii, where he was a major shareholder. He resided primarily in Honolulu until 2009. His memberships included Financial Executives International, Ducks Unlimited, Oahu Country Club, Waialae Country Club, and the Bohemian Club.

Mr. Hudson is survived by his wife, Utako Kimura Hudson; daughters Kay Fiset, Lynne Schweizer Hudson, Anne Elise Hudson, Elizabeth Hudson, and Ann Nordin (another daughter, Joan Hudson, died in 1997); 11 grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held for family only. Contributions may be made in his memory to Ducks Unlimited, a world leader in wetlands and wildfowl conservation.
