Morris Van Buren Hutt peacefully passed away on Thursday, December 23, 2021 at White Oak Medical Center, Silver Spring, MD.
Memories are gifts of God that death cannot diminish. Bidding “farewell” to Morris (aka, Van, Van Buren, Hutt, daddy, and Pops,) is painful, though unavoidable.
Remembering him will sustain us as we seek strength in the loss of our loved one.
On July 31, 1947, he was born to the late Morris Thaniel Hutt and Neva Frances Virginia Wright Hutt in Salisbury, Maryland. He was the first born of four children.
Moving from Salisbury, MD at a young age, Morris was educated in the Caroline County School system and once had his mother as a teacher. He attended Lockerman Junior High School, and graduated from Lockerman High School in 1965. After graduating from high school, Morris attended A&T University in North Carolina, intending to study Industrial Arts and Auto Mechanics, but was drafted in the U.S. Army. He served and received an honorable discharge at the rank of Specialist 4. He returned to the Eastern Shore of Maryland and was employed with Mulholland-Harper Co. He worked for Thomas “Tit” Brown servicing his school bus fleet before becoming disabled.
Morris was raised in the church and came to Christ at a young age. He was a member of Metropolitan United Methodist Church, Denton, Maryland.
Morris was the partner with Glenda Nichols for many years and from that union, they had a beautiful and outstanding daughter, Dr. Markiya Nichols. He later married Mary Ellen Stewart.
He’s maternal grandfather, Rev. Van Buren Wright taught him about cars and encouraged his passion for them. He loved to work as an auto mechanic and would never turn away a friend in need of his service and ability. He could fix almost anything.
Morris also enjoyed watching TV, reading, auto racing and fishing.
He is survived by his wife Mary Ellen, three daughters: Dr. Markyia Nichols, Sheree Stewart and Kimberly Stewart Lawhorne, a cousin he considered his special brother, Robert (Bobby) Davis, his sisters, Sonja Brown and Bernadette Connell; two brother-in-laws, James Brown and Randall (Randy) Connell.
