A social entrepreneur, community leader and minister, Dr. James Kent Hutcheson was an incredible man of vision, faith and perseverance. He founded Colorado Uplift, Elevate USA, and Urban Youth Ministries. His impact and legacy extend globally, and all who knew him are eternally challenged by his vision and mission.
Despite his thirteen-year battle with Leukemia, he still had a contagious smile. In 1958, at South High School the Denver Post presented Kent with the MVP Gold Helmet Award. He went on to play football at Wheaton College and then catalyzed The Great Commission Training Centers in Asia which then multiplied around the globe. He then returned home to impact Denver’s Urban challenges, creating Colorado’s most successful inner-city youth program that has been recognized locally and nationally countless times. He passes the torch to his precious wife of 53 years, Diane, his children, Shauna, Jon and James, and his eight grandchildren.
He will be profoundly missed, but we are all celebrating that Kent is now home with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. His memoir, A Most Incredible Adventure will be available on Amazon in November, but you can download this amazing book at http://bit.ly/2Vmld9R today.
Kent’s memorial will be at Cherry Creek Presbyterian Church, Saturday, October 12th at 11:00 am. In lieu of gifts, please consider a donation to the organizations he loved: ColoradoUpLift, coloradouplift.org, Urban Youth Ministries, uyministries.org or Elevate USA, www.elevatetheusa.org.

Long-time resident of Greenwood Village, Don D. Schlup, age 82 passed away from leukemia on Wednesday, September 25, 2019, with his family by his side. Don made significant contributions to treating Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) through his participation in two clinical trials at University Hospital of Colorado.
Don was born April 30, 1937, on a farm near Jamestown, Missouri, to Ursie and Albert Schlup. He lived on the farm with his parents and brother, Hilton, until they moved to California, Missouri when he was 11 years old. In high school, Don was on the debate team, yearbook, played softball and was Student Body President. Don always enjoyed fishing and hunting as well.
Work has never been an issue for Don. He lost his dad at age 15 and bagged groceries to help support the family. He also worked at the trucking dock before attending Central Missouri State in Warrensburg, Missouri. He put himself through college by being the head steward in the dining hall and working construction during the summers in Yellowstone National Park. If you’ve ever been to Yellowstone, you likely have driven over one of the bridges Don helped to build!
Don was in the TEKE fraternity at Central Missouri State and majored in biology with a strong emphasis in ecology. He was interested in teaching, and his first job brought him to Denver where he taught science at Grant Jr. High. While at Grant, he met the love of his life, a fellow teacher, Margaret Hubbard. They met in the fall of 1963 and were married the following August. Don and Margo went back to Warrensburg where Don earned his Master of Biology. They then moved back to Colorado where Don taught at Thomas Jefferson High School from 1964-1968. Their family was complete when Lisa was born in 1968 and David in 1970.
Don left teaching to purchase ScienTurfic Sod Farms in March of 1968. Don always said he never left teaching. He just changed classrooms and the ages of the students! He was an astute businessman yet had finesse and integrity that garnered respect in his industry. He was honored by the Ethics in Business Alliance, served as President of Rocky Mountain Sod Growers Association, was part of Turfgrass Producers International, worked on the advisory committee for Denver Water, and established a conservation easement on his farm that includes a mentor hunting program for youth. He was a firm boss but adored his employees, many of whom worked for him for 25 even 35 years.
Don’s volunteer activities seem endless. While at St. Andrew United Methodist, Don led work teams to Mexico, was on the finance committee and served as a youth group leader. He was involved with The Denver Foundation and was a strong supporter and sponsor for Project C.U.R.E. His Denver Rotary Club was very important to him as well. Among other things, he was a Rotary Paul Harris Fellow, Foundation Trustee and pancake flipper at the annual peach sale breakfast! Don and Margo have been very involved at Colorado Christian University and even established an academic scholarship there. Don also loved his role with Margo as Deacons at Cherry Creek Presbyterian, and many received his firm handshake and warm greeting on Sunday mornings.
Don was extremely proud of his family — son, David, daughter, Lisa, son-in-law, Doug, and grandchildren Jacob and Abby. Times at Nuggets and Broncos games, going on elk hunts, traveling the world and being involved in their various activities were his favorite things. Don deeply treasured friendships. One of the ways he expressed that was by making calls to hundreds every Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. We will miss your voice, Don, but your spirit lives on. Thank you for touching so many lives!
Services were held on October 9th at Cherry Creek Presbyterian Church.Donations in honor of Don may be made to the Leukemia Research FundOnline giving: https://giving.cu.edu/fund/pollyea-leukemia-research-fund

Many younger men would approach her after a race and told her that they had run their personal best time in their attempt to keep up with her. She was the only runner for three straight years who placed in the top seven or higher places in their age groups in the Boston Marathon. Before her second Boston Marathon in April 1987, she married her husband Jim. Running from age 47 through 60, she had 75 first places, 34 second places, and 8 third places.

Her loving son Skip, a resident of Gunnison, was at her bedside when she passed away. He found this poem while making Minnie’s funeral arrangements at St. Paul’s.
DO NOT STAND AT MY GRAVE AND WEEP
by Mary Elizabeth Frye
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Josephine “Jo” Dutton
Aug. 31, 1923 – Aug. 1, 2019
Josephine Dutton, avid local volunteer, passed away Thursday the first of August at the age of 95, 30 days shy of her 96th birthday, in the comfort of her home she built with her husband in ‘65. Josephine lived a life filled with poise, faith, kindness, openness, and a strong will.
Jo grew up in North Denver in a large traditional Italian family as an only child. She spent her younger years playing outdoors with her cousins and helping her family and single mother. She graduated from North High School, class of ‘41, where Josephine met and went on to marry her high school sweetheart, Dewey Dutton, and they were blessed with 72years of union together, three beautiful children, and many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
After high school, Jo went on to work as a top stenographer for the government, but quickly found her true passion was helping others. She left her career and became a stay at home wife and mom while devoting her free time to volunteering in the community. Jo worked with the Volunteers of America (founding member of VOA Guild), 30 years of service with St. Joseph’s Hospital, Mount St. Vincent, Mother Cabrini Shrine, Colorado Ballet, Denver Ballet Guild, Il Circolo Italiano, American Heart Association (Hearts for Life and Heart Mother of the Year 1990), and Samaritan House, Children’s Diabetes Foundation, AWARE, American Red Cross, Colorado Restaurant Association and Mount Vernon Country Club, to name a few. She was initiated as a Denver Alumnae member of Alpha Phi sorority, enjoyed attending Denver Area Panhellenic events, and was listed in the Denver Social Register and Record. She inherited heart issues and was the first to have open heart surgery in Colorado in 1971. It was her 1923 heart that stopped working as she was otherwise in remarkable health for her 95 years and, feisty as ever.
She and her husband also went on to own and operate several restaurants in the Denver Metro area; Tops Coffee Shop, Port ‘O Entrée, Bashful Bull, and the Gemini.
Jo greatly loved traveling the world, gardening in her courtyard, playing and watching tennis and basketball, hosting parties and cooking Italian favorites for family and friends. Jo was a true social butterfly. She never missed an opportunity to join or RSVP to a social event and was always willing to get out and meet new people and try new things. Jo made friends everywhere she went, as her outgoing and confident personality provided instant comfort and connection with people.
Jo, never one to take anything for granted, but as a blessing, strived to give back in any capacity possible. She played an active role in the community and the church throughout her life. Grateful for the sincere and genuine friends that she encountered and surrounded her throughout the years. Her love for her family was unmeasurable. Josephine’s passion to keep learning and experiencing life to the fullest was inspired by her loving family, as she knew she always had her family by her side to support and uplift her. She is at peace with her soul mate of 72 years of marriage, Dewey Dutton. She called him“Dee.”His nickname for her was“JoJo Baby.”
Josephine Dutton is survived by daughters Andrea “Sissy, Sis” (Daniel) Frieson, Deborah “Twinkle, Twink” (Sadeg) Shita; grandchildren Dina (Steve), Dia, Damon (Kelly), Tiffany, Leila (Adam), Sophia, great grandchildren Raquel, Sophia, Talia, Nicholas, Cody, Elizabeth, Alina, Zakary.
