Barney Lee Hutson was born on July 27, 1938, in Checotah, the son of Ira Slaton Hutson and Velma Winsett. He had two brothers and three sisters.
Barney was a loving son, brother, husband, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend. He married Mamie Lucille Adkins on April 23, 1971 in Miami. They enjoyed a wonderful life together.
A Baptist by faith, Barney enjoyed spending his days hunting, fishing, and gardening.
Barney had a very stubborn streak which helped him in learning how to fix anything and would help anyone and everyone he could. He was early to bed and early to rise, when he wasn’t spending his time in the great outdoors, he could be found watching westerns, or drinking coffee with his buddies at the Daylight Donut Shop in Turley.
He loved spending any time he could with his precious grandchildren. He will be greatly missed by all that were lucky enough to know him.
He is preceded in death by his parents; three sisters, Flora Merritt, Lula Mae Myers and Linda Kay Gifford; three brothers, Ervin Sylvester Hutson, Marvin Hutson and Carl Alexander Hutson; and one grandson, Robert Fertig.
Those left to remember his legacy include his wife, Mamie Lucille Hutson of the home; one son, Robert Allen Hutson and wife Patricia of Grand Prairie, Wisc.; two daughters, Laura Anne Henson and husband Gary of Tahlequah, and Regina Barnard and husband Ron of Morris; two brothers, Arney Hutson and wife Carolyn, and Ronald Hutson and wife Lyndia all of Tahlequah; three sisters, Mary Halpain and husband Leon of Tahlequah, Viola Weilch and husband Durl of Tulsa, and Barbara Shawver and husband J.C. of Kansas, Okla.; his legacy lives on in his 10 grandchildren, Christy Smith, Randi Boswell, Mallory Sequichie, Aaron Henson, Lauren Henson, Erik Henson, Destin Nichols, Robert Nichols, Michael Nichols, and Kelli Nichols; as well as five great-grandchildren, Sadie Lamons, Isaiah Tiger, Raely Tiger, Ethan Henson, and Jace Henson, and a host of other family who loved him.
