Wynn passed away peacefully at home in Shreveport, LA on January 3, 2023 after a lengthy battle with illness at the age of 62. He was born July 21, 1960 to Goldwyn “Leo” and Elizabeth Hutto in New Orleans, LA. He proudly graduated from C.E. Byrd High School in 1978 after four years of football, track, and doing what he did best, making lifelong friends. Between leaving high school, he tried many different avenues of employment and college classes. In June of 1987, he married his soulmate and person, Mandy, and spent the next 35 years writing the story of their life together. In that time, they had two beautiful daughters, Brandy and Morgan, that he loved with all his heart. In 1996 he joined the Shreveport Fire Department and enjoyed twenty years of what he called “The best damn job ever!” He retired from the Fire Department in 2016 and spent his time traveling with Mandy, taking care of his animal babies, tinkering with old cars and playing guitars.
He is survived by his wife, Mandy and daughters, Brandy and Morgan Hutto; pets, Katie, Buster, Rose, and Barney; siblings, Beth Guy (Geoff), Neadean Tanner (Kenneth) and John Hutto (Heather); brother-in-law, Wes Chapel (Patti), sister-in-law, Donna Eaves (Randall), sister-in-law, Tanya Hester (Robert); and nieces and nephews, Courtney, Katelyn, Lauren, John Mendon, Daniel, Tyler, Shelby, Gavin, Lexii, Sarah, Hannah, Charlotte, Taylor, and Kelsey. There are so many more people that are going to miss him than we could list, and he loved each and every one of them. He had a special place in his heart for his brothers and sisters, retired and active, on the Shreveport Fire Department.
The family would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and support during this extremely hard time. He would want everyone to be smiling and laughing and remembering him as the outgoing and huge personality that he was.
