Ronald “Ron” Richard Hutt was born on October 20, 1948 in Brookings, SD to Richard and Myrtle (Graslie) Hutt on their third wedding anniversary. He grew up in Estelline and attended school there, where he even had his mother for a teacher one year. At the beginning of his junior year he and his parents moved to Watertown, SD so his father could run Scott’s Mobil Station. He graduated from Watertown Senior High School in 1966. Ron attended Watertown School of Radiology and started in 1969 as an x-ray tech at Bartron Clinic where he worked for many years.

Ron married Joanne Holland on November 28, 1969 in Watertown and they were married 49 years. They had one daughter Hilarie. He later got his nursing home administrator license and worked with administration and sales with nursing home supplies. Ron also worked in different sales positions with companies such as Midwest Spray Equipment and Spray Equipment where he sold and installed industrial paint, supplies, and paint/powder coating booths. He loved to work and loved to talk which was perfect for being in sales.

Ron worked until he had a stroke and then retired.

Ron was known for his stories to anyone who would lend an ear, loved to joke around, was very crafty with wood working, and always eager to help out a neighbor or friend with his many talents and tools in his garage. Ron also enjoyed hunting and fishing and anything that kept him busy or outdoors as well as spending time with his family.

He is survived by his wife, Joanne; and daughter Hilarie and her husband, Tom Lenox; and two step-grandsons, Jack and Charles of Watertown; brother-in-law, Ron (Mary) Holland of Tigard, Oregon; sister-in-law, Janet Holland of DeSmet; and nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Richard and Myrtle Hutt; his parents-in-law, Paul and Gertrude Holland; and brother-in-law, Gordon Holland.
