Robert H. "Bob" Hutchison, age 44, of Savanna, Illinois, died at his home on January 12, 2015.
Bob was born March 31, 1970, the son of Robert C. and Mary Ann (Plate) Hutchison. He graduated with the Class of 1988 from Mt. Carroll High School. In 1994, he graduated from Mount St. Clare College, Clinton, Iowa, with a degree in General Studies. From 1990-1995, Bob served in the US Naval Reserve and proudly served in a Sea Bee unit.
Bob was a man of many talents and interests. He loved telling jokes and had an infectious smile. An avid biker and hiker, Bob would press through snow storms or blistering heat. Bob liked to make things (and take things apart) and enjoyed working with tools and computers. Quick to offer a kind word or helping hand, Bob was a gentle soul who cared deeply about others. For the last (about) 11 years, Bob worked at Rolling Hills Progress Center where he was a valued employee and cherished co-worker.
Bob will be dearly missed by his mother, Mary Ann Hutchison of Mt. Carroll; his sister Dawn Hutchison-Weiss (Chris Weiss) of Oak Creek, Wisconsin; nieces Mesa and Ada Weiss; and many loving cousins, aunts, uncles, co-workers and friends. He was preceded in death by his father, Robert C. Hutchison and his maternal and paternal grandparents.
