George died instantly June 17, 2013, in a traffic accident near Kampala, Uganda, while he was on a mission trip. A resident of Gainesville, Ga., since 1987, he was the director of Church Planting International, assisting indigenous church ministries in developing countries.
George’s European history thesis was titled “Gregor Strasser as a National Socialist.” He took his meals at Wilson Lodge and was active in the Princeton Evangelical Fellowship. He earned a doctorate in philosophy at Oxford and was ordained as a minister in the Presbyterian Church. He wrote extensively and traveled widely, preaching and training international pastors.
The first reunion George attended was our 50th. His thoughts, convictions, and details of his life are recorded in his special commentary in the yearbook for that reunion. Throughout his life he sought to serve the Lord and his fellow man. The Gainesville Times noted a statement George often made: “The measure of your ministry is not what it looks like at the time, but what remains after you die.”
The class extends sincere sympathy to Linda, George’s wife of 46 years; his sons, Maj. John R. Hutchinson, Albert Hutchinson, Capt. Chester H.L. Hutchinson, and Jackson J. Hutchinson; and eight grandchildren.
