Dr. James Dobson shared his thoughts about the loss of this great man:
It is with sadness and regret that I announce the passing of my great friend, Dr. Ken Hutcherson, (“Hutch.”)
He was like a brother to me and I will miss him dearly. Dr. Hutcherson was senior pastor at Antioch Bible Church in Seattle, Washington. When he was young, he had been a line backer for the Seattle Seahawks and the Dallas, Cowboys. Hutch was a fearless man who fought for righteousness with a tenacity of a lion. He was a defender of marriage, and the unborn child, and morality and truth in the culture. Hutch was an African American man who once said to me with a smile, “You’re a white man. People will come after you. But they don’t know what to do with me because I am black. I’ll take em on.” And he did just that in the arena of life. He was a line backer to the end.
I loved this godly pastor, and I also love his wife Pat and her sweet family. Please pray for them. When a huge oak tree falls, many lesser creatures lose their place of safety in its branches. We all will miss this giant of a man.
