When not behind the wheel, he enjoyed gardening, fishing, mowing the yard and anything NASCAR. Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his family, and he never met a stranger.

Hutchins; five grandchildren, Rachel and John Bangle, Jonathan and Garrett Hutchins, and Jennifer Slone and husband, Eric; and two great-grandchildren, Erika and Jacob Slone.
