Troy Andrew Hutchins, 43 of Danville Illinois, son of Fernando Hutchins and Sharon (Bailey) Hutchins, went to his heavenly home on Monday, May 10, 2021. At the time of passing, he was at Carle Foundation Hospital surrounded by family and loved ones. Troy was born on December 29, 1977 in Danville, IL. He worked at Heartland Properties for approximately six years where he was a successful painter who loved his job.
What a delight it was to be around Troy Hutchins. Can you hear his laugh right now? And how contagious it was! That is Troy. His was an affection innocent but boundless, generous and kind, powerful in its rawness and expression. This is the essence of Troy, and why we love him. He was the good heart, the good soul. The devotion that Troy had for any close to him was unbridled, and when on display revealed just how whole of a person he was. This is Troy and it is that spirit we will miss.
Endlessly happy, Troy loved life, doing everything with gusto. To honor his late mother, he created a shrine which he warmly and heavily adorned so as to show prominently in his living room. Troy emanated vitality. With a heart of gold, he did all that he could to add more energy and color to the world, painting everything from his bikes to even his clothing. One might catch him in flashy Chuck Taylors with jeans to match, his huge smile completing the outfit. We knew him as all heart, all spirit. His soul resonated with God and we can see this by reading his own words. Troy in a letter wrote, “The Lord has touched me and my family,” and “I know the Lord will take care of them when I’m gone.” He couldn’t know then how prophetic those words would be nor that they would comfort us now.
Today we should understand that soul cannot die. It is the cause of the thoughts that we have and the love we feel. Just as thoughts are weightless and timeless so too is the soul. Troy is not broken, he is now in pure form reunited with those who love him. In this very moment, Troy is also with us. We feel this just as much as we know that we will see him again.
Troy is survived by his four children Dallaz Camareno and Cierra Camareno both of Danville, IL, Chloe Heffern of Newman, IL, Tayah Gooch of Georgetown, IL, grandchildren, Landen Camareno and Carter Palmer of Danville, IL, his girlfriend Kara Vance of Danville, IL, his father Fernando (Chico) Hutchins of Covington, IN, his sister Tonya (Hutchins) Meyers of Danville, IL, and brother Todd Hutchins of Danville, IL.
Also surviving is his grandmother Jo Darlene (Bailey) Kimball (Jack), many aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, and nieces.
