Cloyd Rex Hutchinson

Our beloved brother and father has gone to be with the Lord.  Cloyd Rex Hutchinson was born and raised in Kanosh, UT and enjoyed a happy childhood learning how to fish, hunt, dance, ride horses and work the farm.  In 1969, Cloyd answered his country’s call during the Vietnam War and served in “C” Company of the 2nd/506th, 101st Airborne completing two tours of service in Vietnam.  In the performance of his military service, Cloyd was decorated for meritorious actions taken during the recapture of Firebase Ripcord.

After honorable discharge from the Army, Cloyd moved to Southern California where he started a family and worked in steel fabrication as a welder and millwright--later becoming an estimator and project manager in the industry.  Divorced and with his only son starting his own career, Cloyd returned to his hometown of Kanosh in 2007 to serve as a caregiver for his parents and also worked part-time for the town of Kanosh.

Cloyd is preceded in death by his father Rex, mother Nina, and sisters Renae and Christene. Cloyd leaves behind his sister LeeAnn and son Darryl.  He was a loving, tenderhearted, and self-sacrificing son, brother, husband and father to his family and they will sorely miss his presence in their lives.

A graveside service will be held Saturday, April 20, 2019 at 12:00 noon in the Kanosh Town Cemetery.  A viewing will be held prior to the graveside from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM in the Kanosh Ward Chapel.  Online condolences can be offered at www.olpinstevensfuneralhome.com.

Being a born and raised city boy, I can still remember the first time visitng Kanosh at a cold xmas time, stayin at grandma and grandpas first house up the street, eatin crispy ice cold green apple off the tree and meeting for the first time, my little 3 or 4 year old country cousin Cloyd. Cloyd, you, like your dad, were your own man then and kept it real until the end. Gods speed, Airborne, "All the way!"

We were lucky enough to stay a week in Aunt Nina and Uncle Rex's farmhouse when I was about 12. Memories great! Sugarfoot trying to rub me off on the center tree in the horse pen, picking and eating fresh green apples from the tree and "maybe" throwing them at a few cows (sorry), sleeping in the basement where the view from the window was half dirt, showing we were buried almost, and the top of the grass; if someone walked by we could only see feet. Coming from Torrance, CA, this was a real treat! Very different and I loved every minute. The fresh bacon and eggs...oh, I remember. But what I remember most and will stick in my heart forever was the kind and loving family that opened their home to us. Cloyd had a smile on his face always, demonstrating quiet strength and kindness whenever in his presence...rest in peace sweet cousin Cloyd!! ~Mendy
