Derrick Hutchins, 24, grew up as a typical country boy.
The son of a EMT/volunteer for the Loretto Fire Department and an elementary school teacher, Derrick had a very normal life. Tony and Mary Kaye Hutchins raised Derrick and his two younger sisters, Erin, 21, and Kathleen, 16, on a beautiful piece of property in Loretto, just feet away from where Mary Kaye grew up as a child.
Derrick loved to hunt, fish and play the guitar.
He played basketball and went to conservation camp every year as a kid.
