Obituary

Rickie Gene “Rick” Hutchison passed away on September 28, 2020 at his home in Mosier, Oregon. He was 70 years of age at the time of his passing.

Rick was born on January 12, 1950 to John B. and Phyllis Lavoie Hutchison in Hood River, OR. He was the third of 4 children. There was sister Esther and brothers David and Cecil. Rick grew up and went to school in Hood River, graduating from Hood River Valley High School before joining the Navy and going to Vietnam.

After returning home, he journeyed to Alaska to find work. Unsuccessful, he returned to Hood River and started working for Cascade Locks Mill. During this time, Rick met his future wife La Verna Vance through her sister. The couple married 6 months later in 1976 in Stevenson, WA. They had 2 sons – Daniel and Brian.

Rick worked for a time at Champion Harper Plant in Odell, OR with his father, serving as a press operator. He eventually got a job with Moore Orchards where he spent 25 years before taking an early retirement due to a disability.

He loved to go hunting and fishing with his two boys. He also enjoyed watching his sons play baseball when they were growing up. Rick managed the Odell Lions for a time. Another favorite hobby was collecting coins.
Rick is survived by his wife Verna Hutchison; two sons Daniel and Brian Hutchison; and 6 grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother Cecil.

A viewing will be held from 9:00am – 11:00am Friday October 2, 2020, followed by a service at 11:00am at Anderson’s Tribute Center. The reception will immediately follow and then all are welcome to attend the graveside service, with military honors, at 2:30pm at Pine Grove Butte Cemetery (2687 Van Horn Drive Hood River, OR 97031).
