Thomas Michael (Mike) HutchisonJuly 28, 1952 ~ May 30, 2019 (age 66)
Thomas Michael (Mike) Hutchison of Charleston, SC, formerly Clarksburg, MD, died on Thursday May 30, 2019 after a short battle with cancer. Known to most as Mike, he was also known to many friends and colleagues as Hutch, to his college crowd as Goof, and to his beloved grandson as Geezer.
Mike was born to Thomas Hutchison and Jane Hall Colesworthy Hutchison in West Chester Pennsylvania, July 28, 1952, the third of four sons. The Hutchison family moved quite a bit throughout his childhood giving rise to his lifelong ability to meet and make new friends easily. He graduated from Wake Forest University in 1974.
Mike’s career was primarily in construction related sales, most recently as the owner/operator of Sports Aggregates LLC, a materials and equipment supplier to golf courses throughout the mid-Atlantic region.
In recent years Mike became a certified ski instructor at Liberty Mountain Resort in Fairfield, PA, fulfilling a lifelong desire to be a ski bum. He was scheduled to begin teaching at Deer Valley Resort in Utah prior to his diagnosis in winter 2018.
Mike and Cathy retired in Charleston, SC in 2018. He is survived by his wife Cathy, children Matt (Dana) and Lindsey, brothers Bob, Don, and Doug, and grandson, Malcolm.
The family plans a celebration of Mike’s life in September. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Blue Ridge Adaptive Snow Sports at www.brasski.org.
Arrangements are with Stauffer Funeral Home, Frederick. Expressions of sympathy may be shared with the family at www.staufferfuneralhome.com.
