Clifford Wayne Hutt

April 4, 1946 - September 30, 2013


It's with great sadness that the Hutt family announces the sudden passing of Clifford Hutt on September 30th, 2013. He is survived by his wife Margaret of 41 years, sons Scott ( Randa, Hardy Sadee ), Trevor ( Diesel ) and Todd ( Emily, Tyson, Hailey, Ashley, Champ). Cremation has taken place and at his request there will be no service. In lieu of flowers please make donations to Nelson Youth Soccer, Nelson Minor Hockey or the Heart and Stroke foundation of BC.

Cliff was born in Nanaimo and raised in Nelson by his parents, Worrie and Louise Hutt. The majority of his working years were spent at the School District. After 25 years at the School Board Cliff retired and enjoyed working part time at Pacific Insight. Pacific Insight always had a special place in his heart and we would like to thank everyone at Pacific Insight for all their support they gave him during and after his time there.

While raising his three sons, Cliff liked being involved in youth sports where he spent time either coaching soccer and hockey or volunteering at morning mountain ski hill. His free time would be spent with his best friend, and wife, Margaret. Usually, they could be found helping out their boys or working together on their own projects at home. Cliff and Marg were inseparable.

Over the past few years Cliff enjoyed travelling in the convertible to Arizona for the winter months with the Bartons and cruisingthe panama canal with the Hollidays. These were places and trips that he believed he would never get to take. During the summer, Cliff spent time watching his kids and grandkids at Queen's Bay and four o'clock tea time at the Miller's cabin was always Cliff's favour time to reminisce and tell stories. We will never forget the memorable mail runs with Gracie riding shotgun on his scooter.

Cliff was our mentor and teacher, our dad, grandpa and husband and most of all our hero. We love you and we will miss you.

Our family would like to thank BC Ambulance, North Shore First Responders and the staff at Kootenay Lake Hospital for all their help. Special thanks to all our friends for their thoughts, food, flowers and support they have given us.

Margie, you and Cliff have been wonderful friends for a very, very long time. We go back to the record store & radio station days and I’ve watched you raise your sons and then start on the next generation. You two were an invincible team!

I’ll never forget Cliff’s one-of-a-kind laugh and his gift for storytelling; and I’ll always be grateful for feeling welcome to drop in for tea!

Take good care, I’ll talk to you soon.

Lots of love to you, Scott, Trevor & Todd.

I was deeply saddened to hear of Cliff’s passing.Spent many happy hours sharing a house with Cliff & working alongside of him at Serendipity Sound back in the day. “Maggie” was his soulmate and his passing will no doubt leave a huge for void for her, the boys, and countless others who were fortunate to call him “friend”.

From: Dewey Riesterer
Relation: LVR- late '60s-friend

I was just stunned and so deeply saddened to learn from the 1963-1965 LVR reunion website of Cliff’s sudden passing. He was a FINE guy and one whom I always held in high esteem. I send you my most sincere condolences and may God Bless and keep you. Dewey Riesterer, a classmate at LVR.
