He was an avid reader, and affectionately remembered by his family for never being far from a book (or two) that he was reading whenever not hard at work.
Quite tech savvy, he embraced the use of computers in his later years and was always enthralled by how much access to new subjects and interests were available to him through the internet and since his retirement, had relished exploring the world in a way his legs could no longer provide him. He enjoyed good music and dances in his youth, along with motorcycles and a good whiskey, only giving up his strong bachelor traits for the love of his life, Margaret, his wife who preceded him in death in December 1991. He immigrated to Canada from Scotland, at Margaret's request, along with their two young sons in 1965, succeeding to build a life that raised a family full of an abundance of goodness, kindness and joy. He is survived by his son James William Robert Hutton, with his wife Kathy and their daughter Emily of Kanata, his son Cameron Andrew Hutton of Courtice, his son Gordon David Hutton with his wife Kathleen and their daughters Kaitlin and Megan of Whitby. You raised us up well Dad and we all love you immensely for it. You shall forever thrive in our hearts and our actions, and no light shall ever shine around us that doesn't carry some of your warmth within it.

Though I’ve quit this mortal shore Tto mosey round the earth no more, Don’t weep don’t sigh, don’t give a sob I may have struck a better job.
Don’t buy for me a large bouquet For which you’ll find it hard to pay. Don’t stand around me looking blue, I may be better off than you. (a/u)
