After a courageous battle with leukemia, Stephen Paul Hutcheson passed away on September 28, 2021 in Dallas, TX at age 65. He was the son of Paul and the late Nancy Hutcheson, born in Tampa, FL on February 14, 1956. He was husband to Ruth, father to David (Samantha) Hutcheson and Laura (Matt) Brown. He was brother to five sisters who admired his knowledge and wit, Libby (Jeff) Smelser, Laura (Tim) Reeves, Joy (Brent) Siota, Sylvia (Karry), Lewis, and Carol (Patrick) Donahue.
A member of the Lord’s church at Longview, TX, he spent countless hours studying and compiling hymns from centuries past and writing new ones, and we have every hope that, through the grace of God, he will be around the throne lifting his voice in praise with saints of old.
He was an avid reader and enjoyed the opportunity to make eBooks available to the public through his work with Diversified Proofreaders. He continued his work from his hospital room, passing his personal goal of proofreading 1000 books.
He was sustained by God’s mercy for many days through the generosity of blood donors. In lieu of flowers, a blood donation would honor their kindness. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society was also an aid to him during his illness. https://givenow.lls.org.
Interment will be after graveside services at Evergreen Cemetery, under the direction of Woodfin Memorial Chapel, Murfreesboro, TN. An online guestbook is available for the Hutcheson family at www.woodfinchapel.com.
