Richard (Dick) O. Hutchinson
Dick Hutchinson went to be with his Lord on May 28, 2014. He was 80 years old.
Dick was born to Ivan and Mildred Hutchinson on April 5, 1934, and lived his entire life in Thorp.
He attended school in Thorp (1st thru 12th) and went on to attend Washington State University, graduating with a degree in Agronomy.
After graduation he returned to the Thorp and was the 3rd generation to live and work on the farm. He thoroughly enjoyed his family and the farm life. He raised many sheep and cattle and a variety of crops.
Dick was a person of exceptional character. He believed in the teachings of the Bible and tried to follow them all of his life. He was a good neighbor and friend.
Dick is survived by his wife, of almost 60 years, Reta of Thorp,; Son Glen Hutchinson and Daughter Jackie (Jeff) Brunson of Ellensburg; Granddaughter Carla Christie and Grandson Dusty (Jessica) Hutchinson all of Thorp. Great grandchildren: Caitlin, Kylee & Lucas Christie and Brock, Owen, Ethan & Miles Hutchinson all of Thorp. Siblings Mary (John) Matthews and Jim (Helen) Hutchinson of Ellensburg, and Paul (Holly) Hutchinson of Thorp, as well as many good friends, too numerous to mention.
It gives the family great solace to know that Dick is in Heaven with his Lord and Savior, joining his Mother and Father whom preceded him in death.
A memorial celebration of Dick's life will be held Saturday, June 7, 2014, at 2:00 PM at the First Presbyterian Church, 1307 E. 3rd St. in Ellensburg.
