Donald G. Hutson
Donald G. Hutson, 89, Bolckow, Missouri, passed away, July 14, 2016 at Nodaway Nursing Home in Maryville. He was born August 24, 1926 in Whitesville, Missouri, to James and Lois (Powers) Hutson. He married Donnelle Dunn in Carthage, Missouri, on April 6, 1954 and she survives of the home.
Don retired from the Burlington Northern Railroad after more than 30 years of service. In his younger days, he’d work all night for the railroad, come home to sleep a few hours and then go help a friend or neighbor farm. He was a man who spoke his mind and always had a good story to tell. Don enjoyed watching sports and old westerns on TV, he loved animals and always had at least one pet. He also had more than one deck of cards with the numbers worn off from playing solitaire so much!
Don is survived by one son, Mike (Marie) Hutson of Bolckow; two daughters, Marcia (Matt) Webb of Cameron, Missouri and Michelle Baker of Bolckow; nine grandchildren, Erin Roberts, Jacob Hutson, Joy May, Holly Sossi, Hunter Smith, Zach Smith, Faith Baker, Bob Atkins and Teresa Askins; eight great grandchildren and one great, great grandchild and one brother, Russell (Wanda) Hutson of Smithville, Missouri. He was preceded in death by his parents and five brothers.
