Donald E. Hutcheson, 73

Donald E. Hutcheson, 73, of Ft Collins, Colo., died peacefully on March 28, 2013, after battling cancer. Don was born on June 22, 1939, married Pasty Hamilton, and raised five children, all in Marshalltown. He worked at International Harvester and then made his career with Arnold Motor Supply. Don was one-of-a-kind, he made friends with everyone he met, and always had a joke or “cute story,” even with his hospital staff the final days of his life. He was the type of person that would drop everything if you needed something fixed or needed help with something. He was a man that got things done! There was no one that could get more done in a day than Don. He would stop what he was doing to be with family. He didn’t miss a sporting event, concert or family activity. For Don, family and friends came first. We will miss him so very much, but we know God could use another handy man with a great sense of humor.

He is survived by his wife Pasty; children Don (Kathy), Peggy (Todd) Cryar, Julie, Brian (Laura) and Amy (Jim) Foit.

A memorial service will be held April 12, 2013, at the Timnath Presbyterian Church, Timnath, Colo., at 11 a.m. Please sign Don’s Guestbook at
