OBITUARIES AND DEATH NOTICES
Tom Hutt, a lifetime resident of the area, passed away suddenly at Winchester District Memorial Hospital on Mon., Sept. 28, 2015. He was 63.
Tom was born in Winchester on March 22, 1952 to his parents, Edwin and Jean Hutt (nee Smith).
At the age of 18, he attended Algonguin College in Ottawa, graduating and receiving his diploma in mapping. On May 18, 1974, Tom married Janet Hutt (nee Genier). They welcomed in 1979 a daughter Shelly, and a son Curtis in 1982. Tom, Janet, and family resided in Ottawa for eight years, and moved to Morewood in 1981.
Tom was employed at Intermap Technologies for 35 years where he worked as a cartographer and project manager. He had the opportunity to travel the world and experience many adventures meeting many kind and interesting people before he retired in May 2010.
When Tom was not working on his career, you would find him in his boat fishing, or more importantly, spending time with his loving family and friends. He was also an active volunteer in his community. He was a member of the Morewood Recreation Association, spending many hours working at the outdoor rink. He co-ordinated assistance during the ice storm at the Morewood firehall. He was involved with CERV (Community Emergency Response Volunteers), a community support team who aid first responders.
Tom had many hobbies and interests, which were photography, fishing, travelling, reading, and spending time at the Lavant Fish and Game Club. He enjoyed helping Curtis with his plumbing business, and Shelly with her hair salon business. Tom’s true place of happiness was being surrounded by his family and friends. He was a kind, devoted, and extremely loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend — always putting others needs before his own.
Tom is survived by his mother, Jean Hutt of Chesterville; his wife, Janet; his children, Shelly Hutt (Steve Mattice) of Morewood, and Curtis (Ashley) of Chesterville; his siblings, Lee (Margaret) of Chesterville, Jane Vloet of Greely, and Karen Smith (Larry) of Chesterville; and his sister-in-law, Heather Hutt of Chesterville. He will be fondly remembered by grandchildren Shelby Liezert, and Ava and Shyan Hutt. He was predeceased by his father, Edwin, and his brother, John. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews.
