In loving memory of a devoted husband and father.
George born in Murray Utah. He passed away in Mesa, Arizona and joined his Heavenly Father.
The joy of his life was his wife Cathleen and his family. His passion, humor, and caring for all those around him will never be forgotten. He loved Quarter Horses, chariot racing with his favorite horse Jawea, and running marathons. He ran 15 marathons in St. George with family that included sons, siblings, children, nephews and nieces.
George was preceded in death by his mother, Isabel Hutchings; father, Robert (Hutch) Hutchings, brother, Byron Hutchings; sister-in-law, Judy Gillespie; and brother-in-law, Richard Gillespie.
He is survived by his wife, Cathleen Hutchings; brother, Jim (Kaye) Hutchings; sisters, Lana (Charles) Jacob, Cindy (Dave) Laursen; brother-in-law, Jim Gillespie; and sister-in-law, Sue Stavros (Dave Hoffman); children, Bret (Mary) Hutchings, Jeffrey (Diana) Hutchings and Julie Hutchings (Tracy Green); grandchildren: Jason Hutchings, Lynsey Hutchings, Mitchell Radigan, Desiree Hutchings, Christopher Radigan, Derek Kofoed, Brandon Kofoed, Jennifer Radigan, Steven Jones, Hillary Hutchings, Rachelle Hutchings and Alec Hutchings; and 14 great-grandchildren.
There will be a celebration of life in his honor in a private family service.
Thank you to the staff at Banner Baywood for their caring of George and his family.
