Rodney Hutton

Rodney was well known to us from our days at Moline High School, and, to some, from his days at John Deere Junior High School.  His obituary from the Moline Dispatch:

Burial will be at St. Mary's Cemetery, East Moline. Visitation will be 4-7 p.m. Thursday at Van Hoe Funeral Home, East Moline, where a rosary will be recited at 3:30 p.m. Memorials may be made to St. Anne Catholic Church, East Moline, where he had been a member.

Mr. Hutten died Sunday, Feb. 28, 2010, at his home.

Rodney was born July 19, 1943, in Carbon Cliff, the son of Robert and Leona Cant Hutten. Rodney had worked at Skills Inc., Moline, for 28 years. He had been a member of the Knights of Columbus Leo Council No. 716, Catholic Order of Foresters St. Anne Court No. 1985 and the Kiwanis. He enjoyed playing rolle bolle, bowling, fishing, washing cars and taking bus trips. Most of all, Rodney loved spending time with his family.
