Donald Wayne Hutchinson, 85, was called home to be with Jesus on Feb. 7, 2023.
Wayne was born on Sept. 7, 1937, in Oklahoma City, Okla., to Thelma Mae Butler and Donald Lee Hutchinson. He graduated from Pauls Valley High School in 1955 and from Oklahoma City University in 1959. An entrepreneur who founded the wholesale clothing distributor Hutch-N-Son with his father, his career in Oklahoma also included roles in accounting, information technology and real estate at companies including Hutchinson Products and Wacker’s Department Store. After retirement, he moved to Alexandria, Va., before settling in Vero Beach, Fla.
A longtime member of the Kiwanis Club, his service included a term as the organization’s state president in Oklahoma. In Pauls Valley, Okla., his family belonged to The First Methodist Church. He also served as a sheriff’s deputy and little league baseball coach. Other interests included his four exotic cats, tennis, golf, sci-fi movies and satisfying his sweet tooth.
He is survived by his wife Martha “Marti” Nell Hutchinson (Shook), younger sister Janice (husband John), and his five children: Douglas (wife Nancy), Robin (husband Peter), Kevin (wife Liza), Lance (wife Leslie), and Logan (wife Valerie) and is loving grandfather to eight, ages 8 to 25.
If desired, memorials in his honor are requested to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
