Hutcheson, Dennis M.
Dennis M. Hutcheson, 51, of Newark Valley, passed away peacefully, and with a smile, on May 16, 2012, following a courageous battle against mesothelioma. Although this disease ravaged his body, it never overcame his spirit! Dennis was born on September 8, 1961 in Johnson City, NY a son of the late Rexford P. and Kathleen Hutcheson. He attended Maine-Endwell High School and Broome Community College and was an employee of Dovatron Manufacturing in Kirkwood, NY. Despite resulting disabilities from a motorcycle accident, Dennis persevered, and became an extremely independent individual, very much enjoying life and treasuring the many friends he made. He was admired and loved by many. Dennis is survived by his brother, Mark Hutcheson; his aunts and uncle, Barbara and Eugene Kidder, Lorabelle Kasper; several cousins, and his dear friend, whom he considered his second Mom, Joan Babcock and her family. In complying with his wishes, there will be no formal services at this time. Dennis and his family are extremely grateful to the many kind folks who 'stopped by' to say hello and to Lourdes Hospice for their exceptional care. God Bless you all. The Cooley Family of MacPherson Funeral Home, Newark Valley is assisting with arrangements. Please share your memories for his family in Dennis' guestbook at macphersonfh.com. For those who wish, kindly direct memorial gifts to Lourdes Hospice, 4102 Old Vestal Rd., Vestal, NY in loving memory of Dennis M. Hutcheson.
