Robert (BOB) H. Hutchinson, a.k.a. “Hutch”, passed away at his home in Coquille on October 27th, 2018.  He was 82 years old.

Bob was born July 13, 1936 to John and Leona Hutchinson in Birch Cooly Township, Franklin Minnesota.  He moved with his family to Oregon around 1940. They eventually settled in Empire where Bob grew up and attended North Bend High School graduating in 1954. After high school, Bob joined the United States Navy, serving 4 years as a Machinery Repairman.

Bob married Doris Quick in 1959. Together they had 3 children. He worked as a carpenter for a time before becoming a sheet metal worker. He worked for Clarke Brothers sheet metal in the early days and then Chambers Plumbing and Heating before purchasing Coquille Sheet Metal in 1974. In 1978 the family moved from North Bend to Coquille where Bob operated Coquille Sheet Metal until his retirement in 2004.

He enjoyed numerous hobbies and interests pursuing as many as he possibly could. He loved fishing the Rogue River with his buddies as well as hunting, camping, cars, horses, his dogs, country music, western art and gardening to name a  few.                                                          

He was an extremely hard worker, a talented artist, mechanic and general craftsman who enjoyed working with wood and metal.   

He loved his family and friends very much and had a great sense of humor.                                He did not suffer fools and never pretended to be anything other than himself.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents and a younger brother, Leonard.                                He is survived by his loving wife of 59 years Doris Hutchinson along with his siblings Nancy Despain of Eugene; Ed “Butch” Hutchinson of Medford; his children and their spouses Joel and Michelle Hutchinson of Coquille; Andrea and Dean Fleck of Newport; Rob and Amy Hutchinson of Medford; 6 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Bob was a lifetime member of the Blanco Masonic Lodge in Coos Bay.
