HUTCHINSON/HUTCHISON, William " Bill"
Soldier, athlete, writer. Born August 11, 1930, in Toronto. Died February 21, in Langley, British Columbia, after a series of strokes, aged 76.
By Lyndon GROVE, Page L8
At Central Collegiate Institute in Moose Jaw, he wore jeans with "Jeanius" stencilled across the bottom. Later, he wore the dress uniform of an officer in Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, and strode confidently into Toronto night clubs, regimental sword swinging at his side.
Hutch - which is what almost everyone called him - had come to Saskatchewan from Saint_John's College in Winnipeg. Bill's father had died in Europe in the First World War and his chic mother, Vera, had married big-hearted Art BROADFOOT, a prosperous owner of a Moose Jaw funeral home and ambulance service.
In high school, he was the BMOC (big man on campus) - coaching football, playing basketball, writing Teen Scene for the Times-Herald, and performing at school concerts.
Bill's goal was to be a college football coach, teaching history on the side. Ultimately, he achieved both in a roundabout way: He became a leader in British Columbia amateur football (he wore a Canadian Football League Builder's ring), and he taught history - military history - at the Canadian Land Force Command and Staff College in Kingston.
His military career came as a surprise to his Friends and, possibly, to him. At the University of British Columbia in the 1950s, he studied physical education and history.
To finance his tuition, he enrolled in the Regular Officers Training Plan. Then, after he completed his courses (including a catch-up in square dancing) he found the army was his true vocation. He went on to serve as platoon, company and battalion commander, with tours of duty across Canada, in Germany, at the Pentagon, and in Cyprus, where he commanded the Canadian contingent for the United Nations.
Bill also worked on state visits and military tattoos. He also found time for rugby as a player, referee and administrator.
His companion through most of this was Kay HUNTER, a spunky, athletic Doris Day look-alike he married in Moose Jaw. They had three children: Susan (an Anglican priest); Bill Jr. (an investment consultant), and Barbara Allyn (a children's songwriter).
Every marriage has peaks and valleys, and the Hutchinsons' was no exception. After some years apart, they reunited on the West Coast. Bill Jr. delighted in telling people, with feigned shock, "My mother and father are living together!" (Kay died of leukemia in 1986, a week after her 53rd birthday.)
Late in 2006, Bill suffered a stroke. And then another. And another. He gave away most of his 4,000 books and moved to a medium-care centre.
In praise of rugby, he wrote that it is "a game that teaches the values of dedication, perseverance, teamwork, initiative and respect for rules." So did he.
Lyndon GROVE is Bill's friend. He wrote this with help from the Rev. Susan HUTCHINSON/HUTCHISON.
