Anthony W. Hutcheson
Rockport — Anthony Wayne “Hutch” Hutcheson, 51, owner of Right Click Computers in Rockport, died Monday, July 18, 2016, at Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston after a brief illness.
Born Sept. 29, 1964, he was the son of Wayne H. Hutcheson of Dallas, Ga., and Gerry Pound Hutcheson of Rockport. Anthony grew up in Smyrna, Ga., graduating from Campbell High School, class of 1982. During high school, Anthony was a three-year varsity letterman in football and one-year wrestling earning player of the week, 2nd team All County 1981-1982.
Following graduation, Anthony attended Georgia Southwestern State University in Americus, Ga., where he studied physical education and recreation. He played football for three years and ran track for two.
Anthony served in the Marine Corps from 1989 to 1994, relocating to his mother’s home state of Maine in 1994.
Anthony was a Master Mason of St. Paul’s Lodge No. 82 – Rockport A F & A.M. for 14 years. He held the positions of Marshall 2003-2005, Senior Steward 2005-2006, Junior Steward 2006-2007, Junior Deacon 2007-2008, Senior Deacon 2008-2010, Senior Warden 2010-2012, Master 2011-2014 and Tyler 2014-2016.
In 2003, Anthony opened Right Click Computers in Rockport, where he serviced and sold computers for 13 years. Anthony was very hardworking and loved helping his customers. He took great pride in his business as he built long-lasting relationships with so many people and businesses in the Midcoast area. Known for his high energy, big heart and always going above and beyond, Anthony also helped and mentored several students in the area over the years by providing jobs and or knowledge of the computer business.
Anthony was also a very instrumental part of the Five Town Football league in Camden for several years. On the football field, Anthony was always willing to do whatever was asked of him, and he did it with energy and intensity. The enthusiastic, caring and positive person he was known as in other aspects of his life, was the same person on the field – except louder. He never stopped encouraging the kids, and pushing them to give their best. He embodied everything a coach in the community should be, and he had an impact on countless kids in the program.
“I’m a better person because I knew Hutch” was a common theme at his memorial service and words his family will never forget.
Anthony was predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Dora Heath Hutcheson and Thomas Chester Hutcheson of Rockmart, Ga., and his maternal grandparents Catherine Annis Pound and Darrell Pound of Rockport.
Anthony is survived by his two children, Devin Wayne Hutcheson and Hollie Ann Hutcheson of Rockport; his mother, Gerry Pound Hutcheson, and her longtime partner, Maynard Montgomery, of Rockport; his father, Wayne H. Hutcheson, and his wife, Ellen Hutcheson, of Dallas, Ga.; his sister, Cathrine Erskine, and her significant other, John Mullikin, and their children, Logan Mullikin and Noah Erskine of Rockport; his nephew, Calen Erskine, and his fiancée, Brittany Peirce, and their daughter, Lillian Peirce, and son, Samual Erskine of Rockport.
