AUGUSTA  -John H. Hutchinson SR., 81, passed away on July 4th, 2011 at home with his children after a courageous battle with cancer.


John was born in Augusta on April 3rd, 1930, the son of Mary Foley and Chester Hutchinson.


John was a life long resident of Augusta and resided on Drew Street. He was educated in Augusta Schools and proudly served his country in the Army at Ft. Dix, NJ from 1954-1956 during the Korean War.

Frost, and they married on August 31st, 1957. They were proudly married for 53 years.


John’s life revolved around his family.

After he retired he began to make log furniture and loved to share his designs with family and friends.


John greeted everyone with a smile on his face, a toothpick in his mouth and a joke. His determination to live was strong so he could guide his grandsons on their path of life. Now he guides us as “Our Angel” The family would like to thank the Maine General Health Reach Hospice Staff, Karen, Donna Lee, Sue, Dodie, and Wendy, Dr. Derrick Tooth and Dr. Robin Locke with the Alfond Cancer center for their loving care throughout this past year.
