Just last year I 'discovered' Gary by doing genealogy research of my family. We never knew any Hutchens cousins. Last summer while up at the lake, my siblings and I met Gary for the first and only time. He was a delightful person, and I could see resemblances with my grandfather Hutchens. I am so grateful that we were able to meet and am very saddened to learn of his death. I was hoping we would be able to meet again this summer. I thank God for bringing us together. Truly a blessing!

Gary was a truly kind and decent person. The world would be a much better place with more people like him. He was also an engineer and a very skilled boat builder who did the type of work that would last through multiple generations. I will greatly miss stopping by his shop, watching as he restored my boat and numerous other wooden runabouts. May God grant you eternal rest Gary.
