In Memory of Paul D. Hutton
Paul D. Hutton, age 65, of Taunton, Massachusetts, formerly of Seekonk, MA and Pawtucket, RI, passed away peacefully at the Morton Hospital ICU on November 11, 2021. Paul fought several severe health conditions bravely and courageously for 60 years. In spite of his poor health, Paul had a positive outlook on life, liked to play chess and Sudoku and was an avid sports fan. Paul followed the New York Giants, the New England Patriots, the Boston Red Sox, and the Boston Bruins and did not miss many games on television. Paul also loved to attend the Paw Sox games with his four brothers and other family members. He was deeply disappointed when they moved to Worcester because he could not make a trip that far.
Paul had a big heart and loved to help other people. After the 9/11 attacks, Paul started a fundraiser for a scholarship fund by selling American Flag badges he designed. The money raised was donated in the name of a friend who died in the World Trade Center bombings.
In his later years, Paul discovered his artistic talent. Two Taunton area art venues invited Paul to show his impressive artwork. He produced many paintings that were quite good. He gave these paintings to relatives and friends, which they proudly hung in their homes. Paul also developed an interest in gardening. He loved to “show off” his beautiful flowers, which he grew on a table garden because Paul was limited to a wheelchair for mobility.
Paul was much more than the above activities. He was a great friend to many people and, more than words can describe, the best brother one could ask for.
Paul was born in Providence, Rhode Island, the son of the late John A. Hutton, Sr., and Ernestine (Rott) Hutton. He is survived by his brothers, John A. Hutton of Truro and Seekonk, Massachusetts; Joseph M. Hutton and his wife Susan of Smithfield, Rhode Island; Ernest R. Hutton and his wife Rebekah of Pawtucket, Rhode Island; and David D. Hutton and his wife Faith of Bedford, New Hampshire. He is also survived by 2 nieces and 3 nephews: Jillian Joslyn of Cumberland, Rhode Island and Ashley Medeiros of Pawtucket, Rhode Island; Joshua Hutton of East Haven, Connecticut; Doug Hutton of Bedford, New Hampshire; and Greg Hutton of Ormond Beach, Florida.
