On Tuesday, March 27, 2012, we lost our wonderful father and the love of Donna’s life. Roy Hutchison died of complications from congestive heart failure surrounded by his loving family.

Roy was born to Henry and Beulah (Hampton) Hutchison on July 21, 1921, in Lupus, Mo. He was the eldest of four sons. He attended school in Lupus and when World War II broke out, he enlisted into the Army Air Corps. Roy served in the South Pacific as a Nose Gunner on a B-24 Liberator with the “Jolly Rogers” 90th bombing brigade. He achieved the rank of Staff Sergeant 1st Class. After the end of W.W.II, Roy returned to Missouri and moved to Kansas City to work. Roy worked in the construction business for 40 years, including owning and operating R.E. Hutchison Construction Company, along with his wife, Donna. Roy retired in 1986 to spend the next 26 years enjoying his home at the Lake of the Ozarks, fishing and enjoying special moments with his family and his beloved dog, Samantha.

Roy was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Aubrey L. Hutchison, and James “Alfred” Hutchison; his son-in-law, Craig J. Pierce; and grandchildren, Chad and Tiffany Hutchison.

Roy is survived by his wife of 54 years, Donna Hutchison; daughters, Judy Pierce, Donita Romines and husband, Bill, and Jymme Montgomery and husband, Randy. He also leaves behind three children from a previous marriage, Roy Lee Hutchison, Deborah Burns and husband, Robert, and Richard Hutchison; 11 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; and 4 great-great-grandchildren. Roy will be sadly missed by his family and we are grateful for the many years of joy we all had together.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the outstanding and extraordinary care from the staff at The University of Kansas Medical Center, Mid America Cardiology, and especially Dr. David Naylor and Dr. David Wilson.

Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, March 29, at Floral Hills Funeral Home. Funeral services with full military honors will be held at 10 a.m. Friday at the funeral home.
