JA Snow Funeral Home


William Gerard Hutton

July 10, 1963April 29, 2021

It is with heavy hearts, that we announce the sudden passing of Billy, on April 29, 2021. Born in Antigonish, Billy was the son of the late Lawrence Hutton and Theresa Callahan-Hutton. Billy is survived by his beloved life partner of 21 years, Judy Harnish. Billy loved his sons very much and is survived by his 3 boys, Kyle, William and stepson Andrew, all of Halifax; granddaughter Rosa; brothers John, Lawrence, Tony, Erik and Robert; sisters Joan, Judy and Beverly; many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents; brothers Bernard and David and sister Loraine.

Billy lived life as a free spirit, showing kindness to all, especially to his close friends, who he treated like brothers. Billy enjoyed long road trips, cooking and hanging out at his favourite spot, the Corner Pocket, with a Coors Light in hand. He loved his sports teams, the Buffalo Bills were it for him. It was nothing for him to host the best Super Bowl parties ever. As far as hockey, guess what? Yup, the Toronto Maple Leafs! Even though they haven’t won a Stanley Cup since 1967, Billy was still one of their biggest fans. Go Leafs! We will always remember his big smile and his witty charm.

Due to Covid 19, a celebration of life will be held at a later date. Billy is now up in heaven, in the arms of his mother who he cherished.

“the fact that you’re no longer here, will always cause me pain, but you are forever in my heart, until we meet again.”

Although we were first cousins it is sad that we never had opportunity to meet one another. Would like to offer my sympathy to Billy's family.
