Mr. Hutson spoke often of his memories of growing up on the farm. He worked hard, drawing on the values he learned as a youngster. He founded and ran his own company, Hutson Family Paving and Grading, for many years, quite successfully. When he wasn’t working, he treasured spending time with his family. He enjoyed fishing and a great round of golf! As much as he enjoyed these activities, he cherished most, the day he was saved by the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He attended Hope Fellowship Church.
A graveside service will be held at Little Mountain Baptist Church Cemetery, in Ararat, NC, on Sunday, March 7, 2021 at 2:00 PM. Officiating will be Terry Johnson.
