Brian Peter Hudson

1960 ~ 2022

Brian Peter Hudson, age 62 of Sandy, UT, passed away on November 18th after a brutal struggle with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. This cruel disease robbed him of his independence and precious time with family and friends who will miss him terribly.

Brian was born in Syracuse, NY to Phil and Sandra Hudson. He graduated from First Colonial High School in Virginia Beach, where his family moved when he was a teenager. Brian received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Syracuse University and earned his MBA from Westminster College in Salt Lake City. He began his career as a television news photojournalist and spent nearly a decade working for KTVX in Salt Lake. After obtaining his MBA, Brian transitioned to (what would be) a 16-year career in advertising and marketing. He was an account supervisor with Publicis (previously Evans Group Advertising) and later at Thomas Arts, where he spent the last six years of his career. He is admired by those he worked with and remembered as the kindest and most generous colleague and friend.

Brian’s greatest joy was spending time with his two children, Paul, 22, and Matthew, 20. He shared his love of sports with them, coaching their basketball and lacrosse teams and teaching them to ski. He loved camping trips to Moab, driving his jeep, taking prize-winning photographs, and cheering for the NY Giants. Brian was thoughtful, compassionate, and smart with a dry sense of humor.

Brian is survived by his father, Phil Hudson, and his stepmother, Lori Hudson; his sister, Kathryn Scovel; his children, Paul and Matthew; his stepbrother, Ashton Teske; his niece, Shannon Scovel, nephew, Riley Scovel, and brother-in-law, Curt Scovel; his aunt, Suzanne Hudson, uncle, Charles Hudson, aunt Peg Hudson, uncle, John Kerr, and aunt, Bonnie Kerr. Brian was preceded in death by his mother, Sandra Hudson.

The family wishes to express their deep appreciation for the compassionate care provided to Brian by the staff of The Auberge at Aspen Park.

A memorial mass for Brian will be held at St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Cottonwood Heights at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, January 21st. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association at


Phil, Lori & Kathryn-
Brian holds a special place in so many hearts of people he met along this life’s journey. I’m grateful to him for showing me a side of nature I never would have discovered had our paths not connected. So many others feel the same about him. ❤️

Kathryn and Family,
I am so sorry for the loss of Brian, and the painful last few years where his health significantly declined. It is a heartbreaking disease and so hard for family to watch the changes mentally and physically. I am sending you prayers for comfort and peace.

As I reflect on hundreds of emails and text messages exchanged with Brian the past 15 years, I am realizing what a profound influence he had not only on my career, but me as a person. I cherish our time we spent together. Prayers to his family and children.
