Harold Lee Dutcher of Appleton City, Missouri parted with us and went to Heaven to be with Jesus on February 20, 2021 at St Lukes Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri.

He was born to Grace (Mallicoat) Dutcher and Paris Wright on May 28, 1946 in Monegaw Springs, Missouri and then later adopted by Junior Dutcher when he was 6 years old.  He graduated high school in 1965 and then later went to college to be a preacher.  Then he joined the army in 1966 and was honorably discharged in 1972.  His commendations include the National Defense Service Medal Sharpshooter (Rifle)

Harold married Pamela Evans in 1969 and resided in Bolivar, Missouri.  He spent most of his life in Monegaw Springs and eventually moved to Appleton City, Missouri.

He was a member of the Freedom Tabernacle Church in Osceola, Missouri.  He cherished life and served the Lord.  He will be remembered by his wonderful sense of humor and the many lives he touched.  Harold loved to play music, go to church, ride his motorcycle and hunting and fishing.  He would go grizz (squirrel) hunting and keep a scoreboard of his kills and his misses when he went hunting.  He was a true Monegaw outlaw and loved living off the land.  Most of all he loved spending time with his family and friends.  Harold never met a stranger and had nicknames for everyone  Basketball was his favorite sport and he played a game of CAT as often as he could.  He enjoyed playing music with his friends for hours.  Harold always found a way to fix anything broken mostly with black tape or a bungee strap.  He will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

Harold was preceded in death by his father, Paris Wright; mother, Grace Dutcher; father, Junior Dutcher; grandmother, Alma Mallicoat; grandfather, Frank Mallicoat, Uncle Short, Otha, and his dear friend Kurt Davis.

He is survived by his one true love Pamela (Evans) Dutcher; sons, Robert L. Dutcher and companion Charlotte Redburn, Ronnie Dutcher and Rhonda and Roger A. Dutcher and wife Denise; daughter, Rhonda K. Kozma and husband Wane, Rebecca Dutcher; grandsons, Jeremy, Josh and wife Telisha, Derrick and wife Destiny, Rowen, Toby, Treyton and Joseph Howey; granddaughters, Gabby, Josie, Gracie, Jara, Paige, Kaylene, Novah, Tristen, Everly; great grandchildren, Gaven, Kyle, Drew, Deklyn, Kyler and Liam; sister, Barb Robertson and companion Joe Crenshaw and Joy McGuire; brother, Larry Dutcher and wife Pam along with numerous nieces, nephews, other family and many friends.

His family and many friends look forward to a reunion in Heaven to rejoice with him someday.

    Sorry to hear about the passing of Harold. I worked at the feed mill in Appleton City with him and it was never a dull moment. He always made me smile, either his jokes or singing he was a great man.
