William Martin "Dub" Hudson Jr., a former Lafayette City Councilman, has died at 93.

Huson died in December, according to an obituary provided by his family.

He was a veteran of the U.S. Naval Air Corps, a graduate of the University of Tulsa and active in LAGCOE. He worked as a petroleum engineer in New Orleans and Lafayette. However, his family says that his work with the Children's Museum of Acadiana was his "true calling," because he loved his work there - which he continued until he was 89 years old.

He is survived by his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, a family whose "hearts are broken."
