Gene was born on December 7, 1922 in Carrizozo, New Mexico to Tyson and Lena Hutchison. He attended school in Forest, NM, but was forced to quit in 1936 when his father was killed in a car accident. Gene joined the Navy in 1943 and served on the USS Cliffrose throughout the duration of WWII. Gene accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior in 1951 and continued to serve Him throughout his life. He was ordained as a deacon in 1967. His faith was a shining example to his children, grandchildren, and all who knew him. As a young man Gene worked in several different occupations, before pursuing his dream of becoming a farmer. After battling the droughts of the early fifties, he abandoned his dream and became employed as a lay-down operator in the paving business. In 1978, he and his sons founded Hutch and Sons Paving. Even after retiring he could still put in a good day’s work well into his 80s.
Gene was preceded in death by his wife, Thelma, infant son Harold Edward Hutchison, infant grandson Eugene Carl (Trey) Hutchison III, grandson Rodney Glen Hutchison, his parents Tyson and Lena Hutchison, his brothers, Aaron Hutchison, Wiley Hutchison, Dan Hutchison, Paul Hutchison, Herbert Hutchison, Carroll Hutchison, and Pat Hutchison, and his sister Lanora Bogart. He is survived by one sister, Virginia Jennings of Albuquerque, five children Carl Hutchison and his wife Jan of Camp Wood, Texas, Glen Hutchison and his wife Kathy, of Bosque Farms, Cathy Anderson and her husband Scott of Albuquerque, Audrey Belcher and her husband Alan of Rogers, and Joe Hutchison of Los Lunas. His 16 grandchildren, 30 great grandchildren, and four great-great grandchildren.
Funeral services will be held on Monday, October 28, 2019 at the First Baptist Church of Los Lunas. A viewing will begin at 10:00 AM, followed by a funeral service at 11:00 AM. Gene will be buried next to his wife at the Fort Sumner Cemetery the following day.
