Thomas "Thommy" L. Hutchison, Jr., 43, originally of Phillipsburg, NJ, lost his 17-year battle with multiple sclerosis on May 10, 2017. Thommy was a 1992 graduate of Phillipsburg High School and graduated cum laude from Belmont University in Nashville, TN, with a bachelor of arts degree in music business. As a youth, Thommy enjoyed playing sports, most notably football for the Steele Hill Boys Club. In high school, he was active in the performing arts at Phillipsburg High School. After graduating college, Thommy worked for Left Bank Management and Mercury Roads in Nashville. Throughout his professional career, he worked with artists Shania Twain, Deanna Carter and many others. Upon being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the early age of 26, he was forced into an early retirement due to the disabilities brought upon him by the illness. The progressive nature and strain of disease rendered him incapacitated for roughly 15 years. Thommy was an avid fan of country music. His favorite artists of all time are Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire. He was also entertained by watching the classic TV shows Happy Days, Charmed, and his all-time favorite, The Golden Girls. Thommy is survived by his father, Thomas Sr., and step-mother, Mary, of Kunkletown, PA; sister, Holly, and brother-in-law, Rich Weinman of Breinigsville, PA; brother Brett, and his sister-in-law, Tara, and niece, Riley, of Hillsdale, NJ. He was predeceased by his mother, Dorothy, and brother, Travis. A Memorial Tribute will be held on Saturday, June 10, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. at the Finegan Funeral Home, 302 Heckman St., Phillipsburg, NJ. Thommy's family are strong advocates of the MS Society. In lieu of flowers, the family has created a memorial in Thommy's name to raise funds for MS research.
