Des Moines

Gary Delbert Hutzel, 50, of Des Moines, IA left this world on November 29, 2020 after a short battle with lung cancer to rejoin his parents in a beautiful place called Heaven where he will no longer feel any pain. He fought with valor until his God called him home.

Born to Gary Lee and Dixie Lee Hutzel on July 21, 1970, he was welcomed into a family of six big sisters who loved and adored their baby brother. He was raised on the eastside of Des Moines until moving with his parents to Granger where he later graduated from Woodward Granger High School in 1988. During his lifetime, he enjoyed trips to Las Vegas and Hawaii and going to the Indy 500 with his dad and Uncle Joe.

Gary was a mechanic and jack of all trades when it came to fixing things. If you gave him a project to work on, he wouldn’t give up until he got it right! With a few choice curse words, of course! His biggest joys in life were being a father, fishing, his beloved pets and playing jokes on the ones he loved. He always loved a good laugh and his family most of all. We will greatly miss his enormous heart, his laugh and his beautiful smile.

He is survived by his sisters: Dixie Moll, Tammie Wood and Debbie Harrison, all of Des Moines, Jeannie Pederson of Madrid, Vickie Simmons of Indianola and Melanie Current of Pleasant Hill. He also is survived by his son Adam Hutzel of Norwalk, stepson Jonathon Hanson of Des Moines, wife Marisol {Sara} McCallister, his lifelong friend Robert Schneider and many nieces and nephews.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by Hamilton's Funeral Home, 605 Lyon Street, Des Moines, IA. A cremation will take place at a later date and no services at this time. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Animal Rescue League of Des Moines.
