Leonard R. Hutchinson Obituary
December 24, 1920 - October 30, 2016 Leonard Reginald Hutchinson, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and brother, passed away peacefully on October 30, 2016. Leonard Hutchinson was known as Len, Pop and Papa, and was born December 24th, 1920, in Saskatchewan, Canada, where he lived with his parents and sister Peggy. He moved to the United States in 1953 to Bellevue, Ohio, reaching his dream to move to the USA with his wife, Lorraine Hutchinson (1924 - 2012) and becoming a US citizen. He had a passion for life for his family, sports (especially hockey), reading, photography, politics, debate and laughter and for providing his family with an opportunity for a comfortable life. After moving to Bellevue, Ohio, his business and financial skills took him to Cleveland as a consultant and then to New York as Vice President of Finance for the American Stock Exchange. This opened the door to a business opportunity in Santa Monica, California, which accomplished a key life goal for Len and Lorraine, so they could eventually retire in California, which they did. He spent the remaining years of his life with Lorraine enjoying traveling across the United States in an Airstream, visiting with their children, grand & great-grandchildren and settling in Thousand Oaks, California, enjoying the final chapter of their wonderful life together. Len lives on through his two sons, Gary and Glen, their wives Lou and Candice, the grandchildren, Ryan and wife Shelly, Megan Ward and husband Steve, Brendan, Bradley and wife Sussan, Erica Roman and husband Mike, Alex Robinson, Melanie, Ashley Gammell and husband Peter and Laura Schwandt and husband Ronnie, and eight great-grandchildren, Russell, Logan, Lorelai, Nolan, Adelyn, Casey, Charlie, Tyler, Maggie, and Spencer. The family is planning a memorial celebration for January 2017. Rather than sending flowers, to express sympathy please make a donation to the on behalf of Leonard Hutchinson. There will be a celebration service on Saturday, January 14, 2017 at 1:00PM at Oakwood Memorial Park, 22601 Lassen St., Chatsworth, CA 91311 followed by a reception at the home of Gary and Lou Hutchinson.
