BUDD HOPKINS - 1931-2011
It is another day of sadness and loss for the world of UFOlogy and the search for the truth in UFOs and Alien Abductions. Veteran researcher and 'X' Zone guest, BUDD HOPKINS passed away on Sunday, August 21 2011 at 1:35 p.m. Eastern.
Our deepest condolences to the family, friends and associates of Budd Hopkins. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time and Budd will always be remembered with fondness and respect.
"I’m very sad to announce that Budd Hopkins died today, August 21, at 1:35 pm. Budd had been under hospice care for about three weeks, at his home in New York. The combination of liver cancer and pneumonia led to his death. His daughter Grace Hopkins-Lisle and I were with him almost continuously during these past weeks. He was not in any pain throughout any of the process, and he received the best possible care and loving support from those closest to him. Today he gradually slipped away, and simply quietly stopped breathing. He died peacefully and without any struggle, with Grace, Grace’s husband Andrew, and me by his side.
Thanks to all of you for being such strong supporters of this extraordinary man, who has contributed so much to our lives, in so many different ways.
- Leslie Kean"
