James Dean “Hutch” Huskinson, 69, of Oklahoma City passed on early Monday morning at Ranchwood nursing home in Yukon. Hutch was born September 13, 1949 in Oklahoma City.
He graduated from Grant High school in 1968 and joined the Marine Corps soon after. The day before graduating boot camp he was medically discharged. After months of mess and maintenance he was sent home. He raced motorcycles and loved fishing and hunting.

Hutch always took the time to stop and help stranded motorists. He spent his summers taking care of his mother’s home, gardening and mowing. He loved fishing for catfish and would give the shirt off his back to a stranger. He filled his heart full by kind gestures and always thinking of others.
