Cloyd Rex Hutchinson, JUNE 17, 1949 ~ APRIL 13, 2019 (AGE 69)


Our beloved brother and father has gone to be with the Lord.  Cloyd Rex Hutchinson was born and raised in Kanosh, UT and enjoyed a happy childhood learning how to fish, hunt, dance, ride horses and work the farm.  In 1969, Cloyd answered his country’s call during the Vietnam War and served in “C” Company of the 2nd/506th, 101st Airborne completing two tours of service in Vietnam.  In the performance of his military service, Cloyd was decorated for meritorious actions taken during the recapture of Firebase Ripcord.

After honorable discharge from the Army, Cloyd moved to Southern California where he started a family and worked in steel fabrication as a welder and millwright--later becoming an estimator and project manager in the industry.  Divorced and with his only son starting his own career, Cloyd returned to his hometown of Kanosh in 2007 to serve as a caregiver for his parents and also worked part-time for the town of Kanosh.

Cloyd is preceded in death by his father Rex, mother Nina, and sisters Renae and Christene. Cloyd leaves behind his sister Lee Ann and son Darryl.  He was a loving, tenderhearted, and self-sacrificing son, brother, husband and father to his family and they will sorely miss his presence in their lives.

A graveside service will be held Saturday, April 20, 2019 at 12:00 noon in the Kanosh Town Cemetery.  A viewing will be held prior to the graveside from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM in the Kanosh Ward Chapel.  Online condolences can be offered at


Memorial Comment from Jim Campbell

Cloyd Hutchinson was a member of Charlie Company in the third platoon. When I first got to the division in November of 1969, I commanded the third platoon of Charlie Company which is when I first met "Hutch". I think that he was from Utah. He was a rifleman in the platoon and always willing to do whatever mission he was given. Hutch got along with everyone and had his shit together. I spoke to him on the telephone about 6 months ago and he told me that he was going to try to come to the next reunion. I really enjoyed visiting with him on the telephone. I am saddened to hear that he has crossed over. It is men like Hutch who performed whatever duties that were given to them without whining or complaining that define what soldiering is all about. May he now rest in peace.
