Robert "Bob" Hutton

July 9, 1926 — May 14, 2018


And he bowed his head to Jesus
And he stood for Uncle Sam
And he only loved one woman
He was always proud of what he had-
He said his greatest contribution
Is the ones you leave behind
Raised in the ways and gentle kindness
Of a small town southern man…
