Downtown vigil to mark anniversary of Officer Bull Hudson’s passing

The late Aaron “Bull” Hudson.

The anniversary of the passing of Salisbury Master Police Officer Aaron “Bull” Hudson will be marked with a vigil, scheduled Tuesday evening at 5:30 p.m. on the Downtown Plaza.

Friends and former co-workers will hold resiliency memorial and candlelight vigil. Nov. 19 marks the one-year anniversary of the popular police officer’s passing.

The Downtown Salisbury vigil will focus on the path forward and touch on removing the stigma associated with those who contemplate suicide.    

“Bull was an outstanding neighborhood police officer,” said Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan. “He took great pride in being a public servant and he was committed to the work he conducted in our city. I believe it is important to personally extend an invitation considering the relationships Bull built and invested in over the years. 

The memorial will last approximately 30 minutes and will be followed by a walk around the Plaza.

Hudson wore Badge No. 142. The 46-year-old Hudson, the youngest child of Cordy “Bleatus” and Bonita Dennis Hudson of Delmar. He is survived by a daughter, Payge Hudson; a son, Chase Hudson; a sister, Lisa Riley; and a brother, David Hudson.
