On July 29th, 2020, Richard “Hutch” Hutchison, 66, died unexpectedly at his home in Lynnfield, MA.

Hutch was born in Bad Kreuznach, Germany and grew up in Danbury, CT. After attending St. Michael’s college in Vermont, he entered the restaurant business, managing and owning restaurants in Atlanta, Tampa and Orlando. He then transitioned into sales after moving to Massachusetts 26 years ago, recently retiring as the Director of Regional Sales for Weiler Corp. A lifelong sports fan, Hutch devoted himself to coaching kids to be the best they could be. This passion was exemplified in his favorite sporting event, the yearly “Turkey Bowl” he hosted, open to anyone over the age of one. A friend to everyone he met, a mentor to any kid who needed one, and the living embodiment of a ‘family man’, Hutch’s hospitality, generosity, and tough as nails honesty, left their mark on the numerous lives he touched.
