John Duane Hutchinson (Jack, Hutch), 82, of Chippewa Township, went home to be with the Lord on May 3, 2019.
Born March 25, 1937, John was the son of the late Milford and Irene (Carnahan) Hutchinson of Monaca. Together with his wife Nancy, John was a founding member of the Chippewa United Presbyterian (CUP) Church. He was a graduate of Monaca High School and Geneva College.
John was married to Nancy Burgess Hutchinson of New Brighton for 50 years. He served in the military as a United States Marine for 3 years. He was a purchasing agent at Babcock & Wilcox in Beaver Falls, and then was the owner of Brannan Courier & Mail Services serving the Beaver County area for many years.
Together with his beloved wife and kids, he loved making his home on Blackhawk Road in Chippewa, which was a loving place for family and friends to come together over the years. He also loved serving CUP Church in many ways with his family throughout his life, especially singing in the choir. He enjoyed planning and participating in his Monaca High School reunions alongside his many dear classmates. He also enjoyed golfing with his buddies at Blackhawk Golf Course, was an avid reader, and was a big fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pirates and Penguins. John was loved by all who met him for his friendly, kind, humble and gentle way. He loved being a husband and a dad, treasured all his friendships, and most of all, he loved being with his grandchildren.
He will be sadly missed by his loving daughter Ann Margaret (Tony) Berry of Columbus, Ohio and son Brian John (Lisa) Hutchinson of Pittsburgh, granddaughters Emily Pearl Berry, Mary Burgess Hutchinson and Jacklyn Ann Hutchinson, and grandson Nicholas Brian Hutchinson; a sister Julia Marilyn Brush of Monaca and brother Robert (Carol) Hutchinson of Winter Haven, FL; a sister-in-law Ruth Ann Shane of New Brighton; and many loving nieces and nephews and their children.

Hutchinson; grandson Trustin Berry; brothers Milford, Leonard, Elmer, Dale, Raymond and Michael Jay Hutchinson; brothers-in-law Robert Brush of Monaca and Michael Shane of New Brighton; and companion of 5 years Aunt Gloria Burgess.
