Carl Hutchinson Obituary

Carl Eason Hutchinson, 93, passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 7, 2023, at Ogeechee Area Hospice Inpatient Facility surrounded by his loving family. Carl was one of fourteen children and was born in Metter, Ga to the late Meldrim Anderson Hutchinson and Susie Collins Hutchinson. In 1947, he graduated from Metter High School. Carl then joined the United States Army where he proudly served in Special Forces for eight years. For many years, he worked for Brooks Instruments, T.J. Morris Company, and then Sizemore Security where he retired in the early 90’s. He was a past president of the Statesboro Jaycees and first president of the Bulloch Wildlife Sportsman Club, which he helped establish. Carl was a member of the Statesboro Primitive Baptist Church and lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Carl loved to hunt deer and quail, fish, watch the Atlanta Braves and University of Georgia Bulldogs play but most of all, he made sure to never miss any of his grandchildren’s ballgames! Mr. Carl loved nothing more than spending time with his loving family. 

Carl is survived by his wife of 65 years, Ruby Steptoe Hutchinson; children, Carlton Harper of Florida, Stephanie Patty (Alan) of Florida, Marc Hutchinson of Statesboro, Hal Hutchinson of Reidsville, and Lisa Davis (Bruce) of Statesboro; grandchildren, Jessica Patty Ingelmo (Greg), Brandon Davis, Ashley Higgs (Matt), Dalana Hardin (Nick), Jacob Patty, Zach Hutchinson (Michelle), Travis Hutchinson (Joanna), Robbie Patty, and Chelsey Nixon (Dan); eleven great grandchildren; sister, Charlaine Clutter of Statesboro; sisters-in-law, Jackie Hutchinson of Brunswick, and Yvonne Steptoe of Grovetown; brothers-in-law, Bobby Steptoe (Sheresa) of Statesboro, and Billy Steptoe (Vivian) of Rincon; and numerous nieces and nephews.
