Sterling "Bubby" Dutton, Jr.

 

Sterling “Bubby” Dutton, Jr, born into a Christian home, was the middle child of three to Sterling and Mary Eugenia Dutton.  Sterling Jr. met his Lord and Savior Monday, August 21, 2023 at the age of 75. An unexpected, aggressive cancer robbed him of his golden years.

Raised on a 40-acre farm at Masonville, KY, Sterling proudly lived the American dream. Following his 1965 graduation from Daviess County High School, he served six years as a paratrooper in the US Army Reserves. He later became a proud parent of Burley Thomas and Tracy Michelle.

Both immaculate and a fixer of anything structural or mechanical, Sterling retired as the paint line superintendent at Commonwealth Aluminum, Hawesville, KY. Later he owned S & S Construction. Sterling was a 20-year member of Owensboro Christian Church. The Owensboro Greenbelt was his favorite activity. Each day he enjoyed a 4-5 mile walk, where he met with many friends along the way.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Marilyn Rhoads Dutton in 2019; his brother, Darrell Ray Dutton in 2009; and his brother-in-law, Michael Rhoads in 2023.

Sterling is survived by a daughter, Tracy Michelle Dutton McKinney (James); a son, Burley Thomas Dutton; a sister, Linda Dutton Lynch (Bill), four grandchildren, Dana McKinney Joines (Carson), Chelsea McKinney Montgomery (Tyler), Lauren McKinney and Ross McKinney; four great-grandchildren, Melanie, Aubree, and twins, Cooper and Hadley; nephew, J. David Lynch (Lora); and three nieces, Ashley Lynch Denton (Chris), Kate Dutton Crnko (Adam) and Whitney Dutton Morr (Brad).

The family offers a special thanks to his life-long friend J.T. Basham for standing by his side and mowing his grass over the past few weeks.

            The funeral service will be at 12:15 PM, Friday, August 25 at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory with burial following at Owensboro Memorial Gardens. Visitation will be Thursday from 4:00 until 7:00 PM and Friday from 11:00 AM until 12:15 PM at the funeral home.
