Obituary: Hutchinson, Lorenzen - Statesman Journal

Monday, June 27, 2016

Marilyn Minnis. They were married Aug. 7, 1953 in Meadville, Pennsylvania. Hutch and Marilyn moved their family to southern California in 1960 so Hutch could take a job with the Garden Grove School District, where he taught for twenty years. He worked a second job in park security at Disneyland and told many interesting stories about his time there. After retirement Hutch and Marilyn took off in their pick-up with fifth-wheel attached, traveling across the country visiting family and friends. They lived at times in Oregon, Texas, New Mexico, California, and Missouri, until finally settling in Sublimity. For several years Hutch and Marilyn were avid square dancers. Hutch enjoyed collecting stamps, assembling puzzles, reading westerns and Sudoku. When someone asked Marilyn why she first dated Hutch her answer was “because he’s so funny”. Hutch was known for his sense of humor and positive outlook on life, and will be missed by all who knew and loved him.James (Jim) LorenzenNovember 3, 1932 — June 9, 2016James Alan Lorenzen of Silverton passed away June 9 at the age of 83.
