From all of the nurses, techs, and staff on 5 West at Sparrow Hospital, we would like to tell you how great it was to get to know Hut and his family. We are all thinking about you and will keep you in our prayers during this hard time.
We met Hut through our good friends, Jimmy & Pat Wymer. We enjoyed visiting with Hut and hearing his stories. He will be missed down here, but think about the reunion he is having! Great memories :)
Hut and Honey were surrogate grandparents to all of us at Hubbard Lake Baptist Church... held in high esteem and very much loved. Sad for us left behind missing them, but happy for them. Sometimes God heals people by taking them Home. He'd talk often of Florida this last fall, but he sure wouldn't trade where he's at for Florida now! Imagine what he's seeing and who he's with! Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has entered into the heart of man, the things God has prepared for them that love Him. I Cor. 2:9 God bless ~ praying for you and family.
My parents (Marge and Jack Vinton) were motorcycling buddies of "Hut" and Deloris. They spoke fondly of them and I heard how tenderly he cared for his wife. After my father passed away Hut called my mom now and then to console her, as she too cared for dad (who had Parkinson's) for years. My mom passed away Sunday and we had her funeral today. There were pictures of the motorcycle buddies on display and many stories were shared. I was shocked to learn that Hut had passed away just the day before. It seems to be a coming home of old friends.
Dirk, we have many pleasant memories of your father. The other day when Lin was making an omelet, I reminded her of the time we spent overnight with Hutt in FL when he insisted on making us an omelet for breakfast. He was a great friend, always thinking of others. Our prayers are with you in this time of loss.
