PEEWEE was born in Anahuac, Texas on Sunday, October 5, 1941, to Essie (Matthews) and Lester Grover Hutson. Growing up in Hartburg, Texas, PEEWEE was a longtime resident of Orange, Texas where he was known and loved by many. He met the love of his life when he came to know, Jackie “Sharon” (Burch). The couple married on November 14, 1963. They shared 57 years of marriage but made a lifetime of memories, together with their three children. He was voted, Most Handsome, by his peers in high school, as well as most everyone he came across. He was a very respectful man of few words that was old school and very traditional in all aspects of his life. The way he raised his children, provided for his family and his outstanding work ethic were all just a direct reflection of the man that he was. Although he was strict, he was always a very loving and caring daddy to his children and they knew that. “He raised them right!” PEEWEE loved his family and the Lord unconditionally. The family enjoyed spending time together going shrimping, fishing, camping. He enjoyed being on the water, just enjoying the great outdoors.
PEEWEE was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, great-great grandfather and friend who will forever be loved and missed by all who knew him.
PEEWEE is preceded in death by his parents, Lester and Essie Hutson, as well as his brothers, Glen Hutson, Rex Hutson, W.H. Hutson and Douglas Hutson.
