Kenny was born on March 31, 1970 in Orangeburg, S.C. He was the son of Charles Howard Hutchins and Janice Newman Hutchins. He graduated from Orangeburg Wilkinson High School in 1988. Kenny’s love of cars started at a young age. He started working with Mike Pooser at Pooser’s Service Center at age 16. He went on to take an automotive course at the Technology Center that was taught by Mr. Charlie Fanning while in high school. Mr. Charlie later became his mentor and friend. Kenny also worked for Fogle Brother’s Construction. He would work during the day and at night he would work on cars at his home which led to him opening his own automotive shop called Kenny’s Automotive in 2000. Kenny had a passion for cars, especially Chevys. He loved Nascar and the drivers Dale Earnhardt, Sr. and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. He enjoyed boating on the lake and taking trips to Pigeon Forge, TN where he would go hiking with his loyal companion, “Bones” before he passed away in January of this year.
Survivors include his parents, Charles and Janice Hutchins; sisters, Vicki Hutchins, Cheryl Bishop (Craig); nephews, Christopher “Chris” Bishop (Brittney), Brent Schurlknight; great-nephew, Luke Bishop; aunt, Sandra VanBrackle and a number of cousins.
