Rowdy Hutchins


 

 

Rowdy Hutchins, 57, of McComb, Mississippi, formerly of Joaquin, passed away Saturday, June 15, 2019, in Ohio.


Funeral service will be held at 2:30 p.m., Thursday, June 20, 2019, at Watson & Sons Funeral Home in Center with Bro. Chris Collins officiating.  Interment will be held later in McComb, Mississippi.  Visitation will be held prior to the service, beginning at noon.
Mr. Hutchins was born March 23, 1962, in Pasadena, Texas, to Darrell Lee Hutchins and Sarah Wynell Wright Hutchins.  


Rowdy Hutchins was the oldest son of Darrell and Nell Hutchins. He grew up in Shelby County with his parents, brothers, Jinx and Scott, his beloved grandparents, Ma and DaDa, aunt and uncles, along with many loved cousins. 


He graduated from Joaquin High School, very involved in sports, but not so much in academics. Many memories he would share included stories with his cousins and friends as they congregated around Granny’s kitchen counter. 


He began his career in the oil field when Uncle Jake got him his first job with Reading & Bates working off shore. Daddy always told funny stories about working with Uncle Jake, Elbert and the rest of the crew. Later in his career he traveled all over the United States with his father, brothers, and friends working in refineries for various construction companies as a Pipe Fitter, later transitioning to a Project Manager. When this work was slow, he worked in the log woods where he made lifelong friends as well. 


Traveling away from home to make a living brought about some of the best and worst of times.  As our father traveled, he developed a love for history, good food and spending time with his family. Some of our best memories were made on the road. As his family grew, Daddy always made time for his family. He loved us and we knew it. He always had a nickname for our cousins and friends and wanted to make everyone feel welcome, often being told how kindhearted and surprisingly calm he was for such a big man, named "Rowdy."


His love for traveling and new adventures continued up until his most recent days. He shared a life with his wife, Rose, and together they carried on the dream of living each day to the fullest. Always on new adventures as they visited the many historical national parks, unexpected sites of the road and good eatin' joints. 


Even though he unexpectedly moved on to his eternal life, we hold on to the fond memories and the love that we shared with him. He loved his family and friends and we know that we will see him again.


With all our love, your family.

 

He is survived by his wife, Rose Hutchins of McComb, Mississippi; children, Katie Martin and husband Mark, Jacob Hutchins and wife Dawn, Caroline Corbell and husband Jasper, Clay Cooper and wife Chasity, and Chasity Brownell; grandchildren, Dawson Kay, Deakon Kay, Harlow Hutchins, Heist Martin, Ransom Martin, Maddox Cooper, Myles Cooper, Caden Brownell, and Will Brownell; brother, Jinx Hutchins and wife Cristi; numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives, and a host of friends.


Preceded in death by his parents, Darrell and Nell Hutchins, and his brother, Scott Hutchins.
Pallbearers will be Bo Hughes, Clay Cooper, Larry Denham, Mark Martin, Jasper Corbell, Freddy Johnson, Charlie Bush, and Bill Luster. Honorary pallbearers will be Rusty Lambert, Neil McFadden, and J.R. Anthony.

Rickie Paul Jernigan


Rickie Paul Jernigan, 70, of Bellaire, TX went to be with the Lord on June 6, 2019 in Houston, TX after a brief struggle with cancer.  Rickie was born on December 26, 1948 in Center, TX, where he spent much of his life.  At a young age, he was industrious and had a penchant for working odd jobs to help support the family.  This hard-working ethic continued into adulthood, where he had a bivocational career of auto mechanic and K9 police officer.  Not only was he gifted at repairing a Volkswagen and building recreational vehicles from top to bottom at his shop Rick’s Foreign Auto Repair with a tagline of “Bug me with your Beetle,” but he had a special skillset at communicating and effectively training dogs.  Life was not all work and play for Rickie, as he was notorious for playing the perfect prank on any poor unsuspecting soul.  A person had to wake up very early in the morning to fool him, even in the twilight of his life, he remained sharp and vigilant.  


Rickie was preceded in death by grandparents Lillie Bell and Fern Jernigan, Georgie and Flint Adams and aunt and uncle Emily and Elbert Hughes.  He was also preceded in death by his parents Miriam and Paul Jernigan and brother Fern Jernigan.  He is survived by siblings Shina and Woodie Jernigan, Reba and Harry Powers, Rebecca and Mike Towns, and sister in law Vivian Jernigan Ford.  He is survived by nieces and nephews Micky Ray, Misty Ray, Lucas Powers, Liza Powers, Liberty Powers, Lydia Powers, Thomas Jernigan, Todd Jernigan, Melissa Marcantel and Melinda Sims. He is also survived by his life-long best friend Bo Griffin.  


A memorial will be held at Antioch Community Center on June 29th, 2019 from 1 to 3 pm.  He will have a graveside marker placed at Mount Pleasant in Center, TX later.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Rickie’s honor at the Dog’s For Law Enforcement Program at  https://dogsforlawenforcement.org/index.php/donate-page/.

Charles Daniel Dearing


Charles Daniel (C.D.) Dearing Sr., 93, of Center, Texas passed away on June 2, 2019 in Center. He was born on March 24, 1926 in Port Arthur, Texas to Willis Hankla Dearing and Iva Mae Block Dearing.

C.D. grew up in Port Neches on a dairy and sorghum farm which taught him to be no stranger to hard work. He graduated from Port Neches High School and then enlisted in the United States Navy.

He enjoyed eating good food, but more than anything loved spending time with his children and grandchildren.
