Michael Garland “Mike” Hutchins, age 64 of Ellenboro, went to his eternal home on Wednesday, November 1, 2023.  Mike was born on January 23, 1959, in Rutherford County and was a son of the late Garland Hutchins and Lucille Hudson Hutchins.

Mike was a graduate of R-S Central High School in 1977. He was known as a hard worker and went directly into the workforce following graduation. He loved cars, especially red Corvettes and white GMC trucks. He turned his passion into a career and worked in the automotive industry in Rutherford County for over 45 years, including Joe Water’s Honda, Charles Watkins Automotive, and then over the last 20 years at Moore’s Auto Sales. Mike enjoyed working at Moore’s Auto Sales in Forest City where his friends became family. He was known for being kind and always taking care of his customers. 

Mike was a member of Florence Baptist Church where he enjoyed serving as an usher and greeting people. He loved his family and enjoyed taking vacations together, especially to Ocean Lakes Family Campground and Walt Disney World. Mike also loved his two companions—his Corgi, Lucy, and Labrador, Bear.

Mike adored his family and always bragged about how much he loved his three girls. Mike valued his family over everything and worked hard to provide them with everything they needed and so much more. He then continued the same amount of spoiling to his grandchildren who were given all the popsicles and potato chips their hearts desired.
