Michael ‘Don’ Hutton


Michael “Don” Hutton, 71, left this world and joined the angels in heaven on Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018, with his loved ones by his side.

He was born on May 6, 1947, in Havre, and grew up in Turner. He graduated from the University of Montana in Missoula in 1970 and served in the National Guard. He taught school in Great Falls and then decided to pursue a career in the insurance industry. Most recently, he returned to Turner to teach science at his alma mater.

Don was a selfless, giving man who placed God and family above all else. Many lives were touched by his generosity and his humor brought joy to everyone he interacted with.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Joe and Maxine Hutton; and is survived by his children, Chris (Melinda), Janaya (Jamal) and Danielle “Dani” (Cody); and grandchildren Logan, Tyler, Karter, Blake, Preston, Madelyn, Alivia, Kendall and Evelyn.

He is now at peace, free from pain, and watching over his family from above.

Services will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, in Turner, Montana.

  1. It is with a heavy heart I say my final Good Bye to one of my favorite cousins. You treated everyone yoh knew with kindness and respect and managed to tease snd entertain all of us in good times and bad. You will be greatly missed and always loved here on earth but I so can imagine the reception you are receiving beyond those Pearly Gates . Rest In Peace – Love you always ❤️

  2. We are all so sad to hear of your dad’s passing. He was such a nice man. We all still have great memories of you all as neighbors and friends. Danielle, I still think of you as “the bag lady”, as when you were 2 or 3, you would run around at all of the boys’ baseball games with a grocery sack and pick up the trash. Your dad and I had many smiles over that nickname.

    We pray that God lifts you all up during this sorrowful time … and gives each of you peace.

    With big hugs … Rich, Kathy, Justin, and Jeremy Wagner in Billings

  3. He was a wonderful man to know and work with. His care for the students, his good humor, and his joking will always be remembered. I am so thankful he chose to spend some of his precious time with us sharing his knowledge with our kids. We will miss him dearly.

  4. Janaya and all family,
    I am so sad about your loss.
    The obituary and his photo were very nice.
    Sorry you had to prepare this when so young.
    I can just see Don now, in my mind, with his big smile, joking around.
    During our brief “re-encounter”, (our first friendship was a few dates in college, 50 years ago) Don helped me a lot. I won’t forget, a few years ago, when, in the middle of the night, I called him to take me to the emergency room. Without any hesitation, he was there for me.
    I will never forget Don.
    I am sad about the loss to us all.
    Diane Faye, Billings
