Obituary of David R. Hutchinson

David R. Hutchinson Three Mile Bay and Indianapolis David R. Hutchinson, 58, of Three Mile Bay and formerly of Indianapolis, IN died as a result of an automobile accident on March 18, 2016 in Three Mile Bay. Arrangements are under the direction of North Country Cremation Service, Chaumont. He was born to Iris Bain Hutchinson and James M. Hutchinson on August 23, 1957, in Highland Park, IL, and grew up in Indianapolis, where he attended North Central High School and Park Tudor School. He also attended Ball State University before working as a successful metals salesman in southern Michigan and northern Indiana, while living in Edwardsburg, MI. There he met Judi Baker, to whom he was married for many years before she passed away. He was close to her sons, Bob and Dan Horvath and her grandchildren Xavier, Zoe, and Joel, as well. A collector and restorer of wooden boats, he fell in love with a boathouse in Three Mile Bay, NY, on a trip to a boat show in Clayton and soon thereafter purchased the property and settled there with Judi. “Hutch,” as he was known, started a metal roofing business and became a fixture of the community, sharing his many toys and gathering people from all walks of life in the boathouse every weekend for poker and other sports. Following Judi’s death, Hutch became close to Joanne Galavitz and her family. Dave lived life on his own terms and followed his passions. He loved playing around in boats. Like his father, he enjoyed sailing; working on houses with his right-hand man, Pat Adams; and teaching Texas Hold-‘em. Dave is survived by his sister Mindy of Indianapolis, his brothers Jim of Chicago, IL, George of Trumansburg, NY, Charlie of Clarendon Hills, IL, and countless close friends in Three Mile Bay and Indianapolis. A celebration of life will be held at the Blue Heron Restaurant in Chaumont at 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 26, and later this summer at his home. A scholarship fund for sailing lessons in his honor at the Chaumont Yacht Club will be kicked off with a Texas Hold-‘em Poker tournament at the Three Mile Bay Fire Department in the near future. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Dave Hutchinson Memorial Fund for sailing scholarships can be sent to Citizens Bank, P.O. Box 449, Chaumont, NY 13622, account number 601288.
