HUTTON -- It is with great sadness that the family of George Hutton would like to inform his colleagues and friends of his passing on December 8, 1997 after a brief illness. George was predeceased by his first wife Nice Fidenato in 1969 and by his second wife Margaret (Marni) Bruce in September of this year. George was born in Bellevue, Alberta in 1921, the eldest son of David and Lena Hutton and brother to Gordon. He grew up in the Crowsnest Pass region of the province and often talked about his days growing up in the Pass "playing with trains," singing, and playing baseball, hockey and golf. George left the Pass to attend the University of Alberta where he graduated in 1945 from the Faculty of Engineering. George married his high school sweetheart Nice Fidenato in 1945 and settled in Calgary where they had two children, Glen (Vicki) and Carol. In 1971, George married Marni and his family expanded to include daughters, Jackie, Judy (Duncan), Jeannie (Art) and Valerie (Ian). He was very proud of all his children, his grandchildren (Renee and her husband Marc, Warren, Wes, Bonnee, Heather, Julia, Greg, Brett, Alex) and his great-granddaughter Kelsey. George's career as a professional engineer flourished in the architectural firm of Stevenson, Raines, Barrett, Hutton, Seton and Partners. George designed numerous schools, churches and office buildings from Calgary to Yellowknife. However, his proudest achievement was the design of the Calgary International Airport. George was very involved in the profession and received a Life Member Certificate from the Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists in 1986. George loved golfing and he and Marni took many golf excursions to Florida, Hawaii, Palm Desert and Japan. His other interests include curling and fishing at the family cabin in Corbin. None of us will forget the all night bocci games in Corbin with Sesto, Beppo and Topano.
