Dean William Hutton, BHS 1967

Wednesday, August 6, 2014, Port Townsend, Washington Nov. 2, 1949 – July 26, 2014 Dean William Hutton passed away in Port Townsend on June 26, 2014. He was 64. Dean was born on Nov. 2, 1949 in Santa Monica, California. He graduated from Burbank High School and obtained a B.A. in history at San Francisco State University. He then began a career in firefighting, first in the California Department of Forestry, then at the Ukiah Fire Department. He served as firefighter, captain, paramedic, and battalion chief before retiring in 2002. Dean loved working at the fire department and was integral to starting the department’s paramedic program. Dean was an avid backpacker and shared his love of California’s Sierra Nevada with many, especially his daughter. The Port Townsend community meant a lot to Dean, who enjoyed having breakfast at the Food Co-op, walking the town paths, and talking with Ernie, Michael, Roger, Viva, Bill, Janie, his neighbors and many others. Most of all, Dean loved helping others, and family members said that he will be dearly missed by themselves and his friends in both California and Washington. He is survived by daughter Mattie Hutton and son-in-law Justin Badlam of Washington, D.C., and brother Alan Hutton of Tucson, Arizona.
