Mr. Eugene A. Dutton, age 90, passed away on Sunday, October 18, 2020 while residing at the Gloucester House assisted living facility in Gloucester Courthouse. Eugene was born and raised in the Woods Crossroads area of Gloucester County where he would meet his future wife and the love of his life, Barbara Horsley. Shortly after their marriage Eugene was called to duty during the Korean War where he would serve honorably in the United States Marine Corp. After being discharged from military service he would continue to work for the federal government in a Civil Service position in the Engineering Department at Fort Eustis. For much of his life, Eugene and his family lived in the Williamsburg area where he made many lifelong friends. Eugene was an excellent carpenter and handyman and could build most anything, including the house he and his family lived in. He was always happy to help others and was very active in Grace Baptist Church where he served as a Deacon for many years. He loved his family and his family greatly loved him. He will be deeply missed. He is survived by his wife of seventy-two years, Barbara Dutton, his daughter, LaVerne Dutton Harmon (Emmett), son David Haynes Dutton (Suzanna), grandchildren, Jennifer, Bryan, Logan, Madeline, and Christopher, and

four great grandchildren. Funeral services are being handled by Andrews Funeral Home. A private graveside service will be held on Friday October 23rd. at Williamsburg Memorial Park. Due to Covid-19 concerns a celebration of Eugene's life will be held at a later date.

So sorry to hear about your loss. You know that God and Jesus are in the best position to comfort us when we lose a loved one in death.

When I saw he was a carpenter, I realized he and my father, Tommy Woodruff, had also done work together. In fact, I think they may have built my older sister's house together. He was respected by all who had the pleasure of knowing him and was a good friend to our father. Our family would like to extend heartfelt condolences to Barbara and the entire family. May you be comforted by his own faith as you travel this difficult road without him.
