Gerald D. "Hutch" Hutchens Obituary
Beloved husband and father
Our beloved Gerald D. Hutchens, 77, entered the gates of Heaven on Friday, Oct. 2, 2009, due to complications of cancer.
Gerald was born to Hugh and WillieMae Hutchens on June 16, 1932, in Quay, N.M. He met the love of his life, Lois Arnett, on a blind date and married her on Dec. 28, 1957. He shared the past 52 years with her by his side as they raised three daughters and welcomed grandchildren and great-grandchildren in their lives.
Gerald was an honest, hard-working and devoted family man who truly loved fishing, hunting and was a mastered craftman of many trades. He served in the Army and is a veteran of the Korean War. He worked for Civil Service for 36 years.
Survivors left behind with cherished memories are his wife, Lois Hutchens; three daughters, Glenda Dempsey, Julene Fernald and Tina Otero; sons-in-law, Jeff Dempsey, Donald Fernald and Manuel Otero; sister JoyceAnn Moore; brother-in-law Ray Moore; grandchildren Jerad and Jeremy Moheit, Tiffany Smith, Tyler Hutchens and Tonia Seley; great-grandchildren Catalina and Maih Moheit, Mason Smith and Kyle Seley; fishing friends Bob Perkins, Dole and Dale McMasters; always thought of as a daughter Pat Cables; always thought of as sons Ralph Smoot, Robert Kirkpatrick and Jerry Blackburn; numerous nieces and nephews; and many friends.
Preceding him in death were his parents, Hugh and WillieMae Hutchens; sister Loretta Fish; brother in-law Bill Fish; brother Arlis Hutchens; nephews Ronald and Donald Fish; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and in-laws.
His wishes were for his body to be donated for medical research. We like to believe he is smiling down from Heaven while fishing with Jesus.
A memorial will be conducted at Westminster Presbyterian Church, located at 2201 15th St., in Alamogordo, on Friday, Oct. 9, 2009, at 1 p.m. Family and friends are welcome to visit and share memories.
