Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Reese Mart Hutcheson, USA, Retired

Tuesday, November 27, 2012
I first met Reese in Paragould in the early 70's. His first pastorate my first job as a cop. I came to Van Buren a year after he did. Until he went active duty in the Army he was perhaps the best friend I had in the world. Through his Army years our only contact were Christmas cards and a few visits but I will always hold a special place in my heart for Reese. Few people have the ability to touch the very souls of people as he did. We had some interesting adventures together and I look forward to seeing him again. May God bless and watch over his family

I am blessed to have served with Reese at the Altar of St. Martin's as a LEM. The times he was there for my family and my church family. He will always hold a special place in my family's heart. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. As so many have said, he is in a better place. Thank you for being a great Pastor and friend. Rob and Evi Endter

The Final Salute

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Chaplain Reese Mart Hutcheson our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Chaplain Hutcheson. And to Chaplain Hutcheson it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during Operations Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom while serving as a Chaplain in the U.S. Army. Chaplain Hutcheson, you are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot warrior: courage, commitment, generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion, I extend our sympathies and our condolences to Chaplain Hutcheson's family and loved ones.
