David Roden Hutto, 84, of Stanley, passed away on Sunday, February 21, 2021 at his home. He was born in Birmingham, Alabama, son of the late James B. Hutto and Trevah Roden Hutto. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife of 60 years, Betty James Hutto. David, known as "Hoppy" since high school at Ensley High in Birmingham, AL, was a loving husband and wonderful father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. Along with his love and compassion for others, he was genuine, kind, thoughtful, honest, and witty. He enjoyed small engine repair, traveling, family time, breakfast with his buddies, and his yearly high school and family reunions. He was an avid runner before it became popular.
David will be sorely missed but elated to be reunited with the love of his life, Betty, and grateful for eternal life thru Christ Jesus!
Mr. Hutto is survived by his daughters, Keitha B. Zittle (Rick) and Kimberly A. Hutto Rhyne (Steven); grandchildren Zachary D. Brown and wife, Ashlee, Rachel E. Brown, Rebecca B.
