George was born June 27, 1949 in Marshall County, MS to the late John Simon Lewis Hutchings and Rena Gertrude Feathers Hutchings. George was a farmer and enjoyed watching hummingbirds as well as hunting and fishing. George was a handyman who could fix anything. He loved watching and playing softball, but perhaps, the best way to describe him was a family man. George loved his wife, kids, and grandkids and will be remembered for his love of arguing with his grandkids and playing with his great-grands.

In addition to his parents, George was preceded in death by his two daughters, Michelle Hutchings and Tisha McCrite, as well as five siblings, Ada Jane “Judy” Guff, Linda Kay Norwood, Arthur William “Butch” Hutchings, Little Rena Hutchings, and Brenda Darlene Goasa.

The family he leaves to cherish his memory include his loving wife of 53 years, Martha Tutor Hutchings, his daughter, Melissa Morrow (Michael), of Batesville, MS, two sisters, Mildred Louise Gore and Joyce Marie Kiddy, four sisters-in-law, Robbie Saxton, Connie McCullar (Curtis), Betty Tutor, and Linda Keen Tutor, four grandchildren, Kayla McCrite (Robert), Zachary McCrite (Miley), Anna Broome (Jake), and Micah Hunter Morrow, three great-grandchildren, John Carter Reed, Lucas Broome, and Charlie Reed, and a host of nieces, nephews, and extended family.
