Craig Hutchings, son, brother, friend to people and animals passed away on Thursday, March 12, 2020 at his home in Kingwood, Texas.

His smile and strong arms wrapped around many in his 30 years and that big bear hug of his will be missed by all. His memory will be honored by his parents Larry and Catherine Hutchings, his brother Scott and fiancé Heather, his brother Spencer and wife Shannon, and his pups Tukka and Koda. He will also be missed by his Grandpa Don Simpson (Kingston, Canada) and Nana Dora Ann Hutchings (Gananoque, Canada); Uncles and Aunts Bryon and Teresa Edwards (Mississippi Lake, Canada), John and Betty Simpson (Sydenham, Canada); cousins Rob and Mark Edwards and especially “The Cousins” Andrew, Stewart and Derek Simpson.

Craig was larger than life and packed more adventure and curiosity into his 30 years than most people do in their full lifetime. He was proud to work for the Houston Port Authority where he felt valued and challenged. He was a hockey player, a skier, a fisherman, a diver, a grill master and chef. He was an explorer, a knowledge hound, a giver. He never met a stranger; he was a fiercely proud Texan. Craig lived life in the Craig-o way – strong and passionately.

We will celebrate his life and the man himself on Friday, March 20th, 2020 at 2:00 pm at Kingwood Funeral Home. Regretfully, the services will be by invitation only - as our nation deals with the current health crisis. The Celebration Of Life will be Live-Streamed and access will be granted by clicking on the link under DONATIONS. In consideration and as a tribute to Craig, you are encouraged to share your thoughts, stories of Craig's life and any condolences on the Kingwood Funeral Home website - all of which will be complied into a "Life Remembered " book which will be presented to the family after the services. As well, those who would like to honor Craig's memory are encouraged to donate to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation (TPWF.org) or simply give a big hug or smile to someone who needs it.

Hutchings family,

Craig and I played hockey together throughout middle school, and I'll be eternally grateful for having been his teammate and friend (and for all of the rides from his parents). It's been many years but I still remember the time when a much larger opponent started getting rough with me, and suddenly Craig came flying out of nowhere and had my back. My heart is with the whole family right now.

My sincerest condolences to the entire Hutchings family. Craig was always an overwhelming joy to be around at every family event. Thanksgiving tailgates, family events, and our trip to Africa will forever be some of my favorite memories with the Hutchings family, and Craig. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. Sending all my love and hugs.

We are friends of Craig's Aunt and Uncle, Teresa and Bryon Edwards, here in Canada. We also know Larry and Catherine. Teresa just let us know about Craig's passing and we cannot fully express our sadness and feeling of loss for you. I was dumbstruck when I read the email.

Please accept our deepest sympathies and condolences. Death is hard at any time, but a child is monumental. We are supposed to outlive them.

Craig is in a place of peace and contentment now. For him all cares and concerns are gone. He can be at peace.

We will hold you in our hearts and prayers.

My old friend,
You have left us too soon. I wish I could have seen the man you had become. I was so proud to hear that you went dive school and followed a path similar to mine. My dive team and I were able to watch your memorial from our dive shack; I know you would have liked that. We both craved the adventure and adrenaline that life has to offer, you and I. I hope that wherever you are now you are as free as you felt in the water. No doubt, you leave behind so many memories of love and laughter with anyone fortunate enough to have met you. One of my fondest memories of you is when you came to California to visit. You were the un-official captain of our driveway hockey team and I would like to think that we won :)
You will be missed and forever remembered.

Larry & Catherine, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Thinking of you and your family at this difficult time. I recall the joy Larry had recounting the stories of some of the great times you all had together - those involving Craig come to mind most. David
