Funeral held for fallen officer

HUDSON --  Saying goodbye to a fallen officer.  Hudson police officer William Wrigley died in a car crash Friday.  Wrigley was off-duty at the time of the accident, but had served as an eleven-year veteran of the department, and was also a Gulf War veteran.It was an emotional day for the city, so much so that Hudson came to a halt when officer Wrigley made his final journey."With position comes responsibility," said his aunt, Christine Kachuba, at Wrigley's funeral Mass.  "I know that Billy took that seriously."If he did, the son and brother folks here knew as "Wrigs" would have been proud to see other officers come from as far away as Poughkeepsie and Albany.  Kachuba reflected on his life, which was cut short after just thirty-five years."His service to his country four years in the Navy traveling all over the world, so many of us haven't done that.  Billy did it and he did it young."Perhaps that well-roundedness made him a better when he made it on the force.  Wrigley was hard to miss around town, especially when he made his way around on his bicycle.When asked what kind of officer he was, chief Edward Moore said Wrigley was "a gentle giant, a 6 foot 6 man, 300 pounds, powerful but still a friend to everybody, engaged in conversation, was genuinely concerned in you, and I think that resonated with our citizens."Many of them got to say goodbye one last time as he made his last trip through Hudson, a mile-long procession from St. Mary's church to the cemetery.  It was cold, it was windy, but his family and officers wanted to salute him honorably."We're a young department and even though he was relatively young he was looked up to by the very young members and they're hurting right now because they did put him on a pedestal as someone they would like to be like," Moore said.Wrigley's car struck a tree on County Route 19 in Livingston.  The investigation in to the crash continues.
