Tribute to Bob D. Hutto

1936 – 2019

A Man of Faithfulness

Bob D. Hutto passed away on Sept. 11, 2019 at South Central Regional Medical Center at the age of 83.

Words cannot express our gratefulness to the Lord for giving our family a man of faithfulness. 

Mr. Hutto was faithful to his wife for 63 years. 

He was a faithful father of two children, a grandfather and great-grandfather who instilled a love for God’s creation and taught the values of being trustworthy, respected and confident.

Bob was a faithful provider who understood the value of hard work and used wisdom to steward what God provided.

He was a faithful man who saw value and potential in every person, made people laugh and feel as though they were his best friends.

But most importantly, Bob Hutto was a man faithful to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He believed everyone should have the opportunity to hear and receive the precious message of God’s saving grace. Bob loved Jesus not only in words but in deeds. He passionately shared God’s love story everywhere he went. Bob ran his race, fought the good fight of faith and finished his course. Bob’s prayer was that everyone would come to know Christ and be found faithful till He comes

He was preceded in death by his parents John M. Hutto and Epsie Craft Hutto.

Survivors include his loving wife Ruth Hutto and two sons, Darrel Hutto (Denise) and Greg Hutto, all of Laurel; one grandchild; one great-grandchild; and one sister, Virginia Hodginson of California.
