We miss him EVERY DAY! His girls Mackenzie and Ellis love him dearly and we know that he is watching over his lil Grandaughter Collins. There is no need to respond to this reflection, I held his hand as he took his last breathe, he poured his most heart felt wishes out to me the 2 weaks up until his death. He was highly embarrassed by his exwife Cheryl because she was charged with steeling a prescription pad from a hospital and his siblings who were absolutely not faithful to their wives/husbands oh and his sister Cissy who showed up high as a kite at the hospital....yes he knew! As for his biological daughter are still dearly loved by me and I have hoped and prayed that one day I could talk with you about your dad. He was an awesome man but his true personality and past has been misconstrued by you relatives. I am very blessed to have finally remarried after 18 years to an awesome man. Yes,it took 18 years ❤️RIP HUTTO❤️

I met your dad Jimmy in Panama city , Florida back when my youngest son was 13 or 14 . We struck up a conversation together at the beach resort we were at and ended up hitting it off very well . We went to St. Andrews state park the next day and ended up doing some snorkeling together . All in all we had a great time and made a great friendship .Also we shared a lot about our lives . His with Enterprise and mine with the company I work for . He was super with our son Tyler and his buddy Kyle . He also said Hailey this , and Hailey that ! lol . In all seriousness , he was proud to be your dad . He also was the one who introduced me to beer can chicken and I use that recipe to this day ! We ended up seeing him and his girlfriend at the shoe superstore on 231 coming home . Talk about a small world . We exchanged numbers at the time and were going to meet up as we live outside Muscle Shoals but a time passed and I was telling some guys I worked with about Jimmy's recipe when one told me he had something to show me . It was an outdoors Alabama magazine and it told of Jimmy's passing in the line of duty . I would definitely have been there had I known of it at the time . I am truly sorry for your loss and I also lost a new but very dear friend . My wife cried when I told her of his passing . But believe me when I say it Hailey , Your dad loved you more than I can say. Tim Tomas

I think of you everyday. You not being here never gets easier. I think the hardest think was getting married and you not being there to walk me down the aisle. You are my hero and I am beyond honored to be your daughter. I miss you to the moon and back. I Love You Daddy!

I met Jimmy when he became the Game Warden for Fayette County, AL. As the show "Wild Justice" about the Game Wardens in California has came on air this year, it makes me think of you even more than normal. Jimmy became good friends with myself and my family. My son Chirs and his daugher Haley became good friends, she spent many nights at our home. This too is my first time to see this page, and it is so wonderful to see all the reflections left by your former co-workers and even Law Enforcement, Coast Guard and Military personnel. It's hard to believe you have been in Heaven for more than 10 years, it seems like only yesterday that I learned you had been shot. I remember being with you at the hospital in Birmingham and how Game Wardens from all over the state stayed vigil at the hospital. I was very impressed with all of them. When you came home from the hospital it was so hard to visit you and see you in that state because you had always been such a strong and vibrant person. And then to listen to you tell me word for word exactly what happened, saddened me, because it was unnecessary for you to have been shot, but God has a reason for everything. I was at your house the night before you died, Haley went home with us that afternoon to play with Chris and she was going to spend the night but at the last minute she changed her mind, she said she wanted to be with her dad. I was glad she had decided to spend the night with you given what happened the next day, I only hate that she was there to see it. You would be so proud of the beautiful young woman she has grown into. The last time I saw her was in Fayette for part of the trial for the man that shot you, I didn't go over to her, she was with her family, that I didn't know, but she was absolutely beautiful. The day you passed away, I was at work at DCH, and as soon as I found out I told my supervisor I had to leave, I stopped and talked to Brad at work and then went straight to see Haley. I went and talked to the medics that picked you up and carried you to the hospital, I had to know in my heart that everything possible had been done to save your life. And I was told that the physician worked on you for a very long time and did everything he could do to try to save your life. I knew then it was your time to go home to God. I had the priviledge of attending your memorial service in Enterprise. It was a very beautiful service, and a wonderful display of what a good Man, a good Paratrooper, a good Narcotics officer, and a good Game Warden you were. Everyone should set their standards to live up to yours. I miss riding 4-wheelers, cooking out and just hanging out together. I will Miss you and Love you forever.

Jimmy we think about you so often. Meredith still has that #24 Jeff Gordon tag on her 3 wheel bike. You always made her feel so special. You never showed us nothing but love and kindness. Meredith having DownSyndrome didn't bother you, I think she loved you as if you were family and I will always think of you that way. We love you and look forward to seeing you again. Love you always, Ann, Don & Meredith Montgomery

lacking 10 days you would have been 43 years old (July 12). I go thru alot knowing how you were robbed of life. I miss your big, big hugs. Picking me up swinging me around. I still go back in time thinking of the good times we shared, you tought me to two step. Always telling me how beautiful I was.And how proud you were of me as a mother, you always praised me. I miss that and all that you were. You always made me feel so special, even when things weren't right. You let know one break that bond. Always bragging about me and accepting me as me. No one could had asked more from a loving brother. I miss you so much. I'm in church and have been for awhile. It doesn't stop all the pain. But I know I will see you again. I will never lose my faith in this twisted world.

Jimmy was a good friend while we were stationed together at Bragg. Soory to hear about the loss. My thoughts are with his family.

I knew Jimmy as a Paratrooper. We served together in the 82nd MP Company. He welcomed me into the 82nd along with a few other "Cherries". He put us through one heck of a induction known has a "Cherry Blast". I will never forget that night or the next morning. I remeber him as talented soldier who was striking with a cool smile. He tought us alot and we looked up to him. I thought he was joking when he said he was getting out of the Army because he distinguished himself as a leader and was sure to fast track into the ranks. I was hoping to chat with him on the 82nd Military Police Company page on face book but found a picture. The picture had RIP Hutto. I was shocked and did some further ivestigating which lead me here today. I shed tears for hs family. This is the 3rd time I had to write on these pages (ODMP)for a friend. "Airborne" "All The Way" and "Good Speed"
