March 3, 1941 - June 7, 2020 Robert Earl Hutchinson, 79, died June 7, 2020, after a long battle with Parkinson's disease. Robert was born March 3, 1941, in Tallapoosa County, Alabama, and grew up near Auburn where he graduated from Auburn High School and Auburn University. A long time resident of Dothan, Alabama, Robert taught English and philosophy at Wallace Community College for nearly thirty years. He was a founder and past president of the Pinckard Gun Club. Robert loved teaching, competitive shooting, reading good books, and his family. He and his wife, Betty, recently moved to Fairfax, Virginia, to be near their daughter, Mallory; her husband, Bob Amani; and their two children, John and Zachary Amani. Also dear to his heart are his surviving sister, Jane Webb, and her husband, Richard, along with his many nieces and nephews. Robert planned a memorial service, his "going away party," to be held after his death, but, due to coronavirus, we will hold the service at a later date in Dothan, Alabama. Memorial contributions can be made in his honor to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research at michaeljfox.org. Robert was man of integrity and honesty and wit. We will miss his humor and his courage and love.
