    Bom in Glasgow, KY, on May 5, 1905, Cyrus Booker
    Hutcherson was the son of the Honorable John Cyrus
    Hutcherson, statesman and a member of the Kentucky
    General Assembly in 1925.

    Cyrus joined the Methodist Church at age 14. He
    graduated from high school at Glasgow, KY in 1928, and
    received his AB degree from Asbury College, BD degree
    from Asbury Theological Seminary, and completed post
    graduate work at Louisville Presbyterian Seminary,
    Vanderbilt, and the Chaplains School at Harvard.


    Cyrus pastored in the New York Conference prior to World War II. He served as
    conference evangelist of the Louisville Conference for several years. He volunteered for the
    chaplaincy a few days after Pearl Harbor, and was assigned duty in the South Pacific theater
    of war for over two years. He also was pastor in the Florida and NC Conferences.

    In the NC Conference he served Devon Park beginning in 1961, and his last
    assignment was City Road GMC at Elizabeth City in 1968. He retired in 1971 and moved
    to Madisonville, KY.

    Several years later, in 1980, Cyrus and his wife, Louise Oates Hutcherson, moved to
    Marietta, GA. They had been married since June 15, 1934, and spent 52 years together.
    Then following her death on September 31, 1986, he relocated to a retirement center in
    Valdosta, GAto be near his oldest son, David. He remained physically active and continued
    his ministry by founding the JWC (Jesus Walking Club). His regimen as the founder
    included a daily three mile walk.

    Survivors include a daughter and son-in-law, Katherine and Reverend Mark
    Nysewander of Bloomington, MN; two sons and daughters-in-law, David and Judy
    Hutcherson of Valdosta, GA, and C. B. and Elizabeth Hutcherson of Greensboro, GA; eight
    grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.
