James Stewart Hutt
Jim Hutt was born on June 7, 1952 to Carol (Stewart) Hutt and Orville E. Hutt in Tecumseh, Nebraska. Jim passed away on Monday, October 30, 2017.
Jim grew up in Tecumseh and attended school at Tecumseh Public Schools, graduating in 1970. He was a lifetime member of the Tecumseh United Methodist Church. Jim and Sally (Blessing) were married on July 15, 1972 in Tecumseh. Ann Elizabeth Hutt was born on August 15, 1976 and Robert Stewart Hutt on February 29, 1980.
Jim attended UNL, then returned to Tecumseh to work at Hutt Oil where he had been employed as a young man. After marriage, Jim and Sally moved to Lincoln while Sally went to school and Jim worked at American Stores where he worked as a skilled meat cutter. After Ann was born, they moved back to Tecumseh to the loving arms of family members and friends. Jim worked for Orville and Keith Hutt at Hutt Oil. Upon returning to Tecumseh Jim and Sally purchased the home Jim’s Grandma Reta and Grandpa “Mac” had lived in when Jim was a little boy. Jim had many childhood memories in that home which continued.
Jim purchased Hutt Oil from Orville and Keith which he operated until 1996. God always provides, so when Jim sold the station, he and Ann became full-time partners and companions at fishing, errand running, visiting Grandma’s and making boxes at Pizza Hut, while Sally was teaching school.
Jim is survived by his wife of 45 years, Sally, son, Robert Stewart and wife Michelle of St. Louis, mother Carol Hutt, sister, Ginny Beadell and husband Bob, brother Chris Hutt and wife Gail all of Tecumseh, and Dan Hutt of Lincoln, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Sarah Mueller, Dan and Lynda Blessing of Tecumseh, and David and JoD Blessing of Elwood, nieces, nephews and friends.
Preceding Jim in death; his Dad Orville Hutt, brother Tom, parents-in-law Charles and Donita Blessing, brother-in-law Jerry Mueller, his daughter Ann Elizabeth, and nephew Noah Beadell.
Jim’s favorite times included trips on wheat harvest to Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas, his children’s birthdays, holidays, Royals baseball, and Husker Football and Volleyball, hunting, fishing in Minnesota on Green Lake, planting a garden, and sitting on the patio with family and friends.
Jim was an honest, kind, and caring man. Our memories of Jim will live on for many years to come.
Life is short. Short enough that you need to prioritize today, not tomorrow. Measure your standard of living with happiness and purpose rather than money. Forgive easily, and forget if that is what it takes to move on. Take the risk of getting burned a minority of the time by giving people the benefit of the doubt a majority of the time. Listen. Use perspective when you offer a response. It is ok to cry and ask for help. Be charitable, and help strangers in the same way you would help your friends. Breathe. Bob Hutt
