Mr. Richard "Rick" Hutchinson, 59, of Port Orange, Florida went home to be with the Lord on Friday, August 15, 2014, after a courageous battle with cancer.

He first entered the workforce in banking, and then, moved into the car business as a finance/business manager. He worked for several dealerships: Tallahassee Ford, Gary Yeoman's Ford, Daytona Nissan, and finally retiring from Deland Reliable Used Cars and Trucks.

He loved freshwater fishing, NASCAR, the Florida State Seminoles, the Green Bay Packers, coaching little league baseball, the Thunderbird airshows, tennis, golf, walking, music, singing, whistling, dancing, bodysurfing at the beach, gardening, and the nature of weather.

Relationships meant everything and making memories was key. He was a true Christian who loved the Lord. He lived with an attitude of gratitude.
