NORTH ANSON - Eugene, better known as "Hoffer" Hutchins, departed this world early in the morning of June 29, 2014. Hoffer was survived by his two children, Jennifer Oakes, of Whitefield, and Mathew Hutchins, of Alvin, Texas; two grandchildren, Alexander and Jayda; and six siblings, Harold Obert, Bertrum Hutchins Jr., Douglas Hutchins, Darlene Hutchins, Charlie Hutchins and Lisa Hutchins. He was predeceased by his parents, Bertrum and Theresa Hutchins; and siblings Jerome Hutchins and Doreen Garland.
Hoffer was raised by his grandparents, Philip and Marie Obert, who greatly influenced him to become the memorable soul he was. Hoffer was a man of many talents, a jack of all trades and a friend to many. He passes his vast knowledge and skills to his children. In turn, Jennifer gave him grandchildren whom he loved and adored. Mathew introduced him to the world of horses, a love and passion they both shared from that day forward.
Hoffer loved many and was loved by many more. Family and friends will always remember him as a dedicated hard working man, an intelligent man, and a man who loved to have a good time. He was a member of the Elk's Club, United Bikers of Maine and was a Jeep enthusist.
Burial will be at 4 p.m. July 20 at Sun View Cemetery in Norridgewock, followed by a farewell party in Hoffer's memory at 5 p.m. at the Skowhegan Elk's Club. All are welcome to come share the love and memories he left and celebrate the life of this amazing man.
