Paul E. Hutchison, 87, entered into the glorious presence of his Lord and savior, Jesus Christ, at 10:56pm Wednesday, November 10, 2021. Born March 10, 1934 in Lima, Ohio to E. Gail and Lelah (Michael) Hutchison, he married Susan K. Hobbs on August 27, 1954.
Paul was a graduate of South High School, class of 1952. He sold Metropolitan Life Insurance for ten years, building his own home, as well as, a home for his parents during that time. In 1967, he became owner and operator of Hutchison Shell on Market and Metcalf Street, later acquiring Lima Mall Shell and Shell Carwash, off I75, on Bellefontaine Street in Wapakoneta where he worked until 2017.
He enjoyed fishing trips with friends, listening to country and gospel music, watching purple martins, and most of all, time spent with family telling jokes and stories. His skill in woodworking led him to craft and hand-carve keepsake gifts for each member of his family including a stockpile for great-grandchildren yet to be conceived.
Since his childhood, Paul knew the importance of membership and participation with a local body of believers, currently being a member of Grace Community Church. As his many interests waned in his later years, he had an ever growing interest in reading and reflecting on God’s Word.
Paul was smiling, laughing, and sharing stories hours before his unexpected death. He will be greatly missed by his beloved family.

Dear Susan and family, Our loss heavens gain! We have fond memories of worshiping with you and Paul! He had a great sense of humor and a great smile! We pray Jesus will be near to you all and know we will continue to lift you up to the Father in the coming days. Love you all. Dave and Barb West

Susan, Vicki Reeder posted on FB Paul’s homecoming. Seeing his picture and reading about Paul brings back wonderful memories of him and you, along with Newman’s and Reeder’s. Enjoyable meals together, attending Homecoming Concerts, delightful conversations with Paul’s quick and easy laughter and spending personal times with him. He showed me how he polished stones. His interests were varied. He was easy to know and love. So good to hear of his growing and deepening love for scripture and the Lord. Faithful to the end he now has entered the leisure of God’s long eternity. May God comfort your heart with beautiful memories of him and the assurance he has safely arrived at home where he has removed his spiritual armor in exchange for a white robe. With prayers...
