NFL player, Pastor and TV host Ken ‘Hutch’ Hutcherson passes away at 61

Pastor Ken Hutcherson of Antioch Bible Church in Redmond, Washington passed away Wednesday after battling cancer for more than a decade. Hutcherson was the star of TheBlaze TV’s “Hutch” and played for the Dallas Cowboys, San Diego Chargers and Seattle Seahawks.

He was 61.

“Antioch Bible Church sadly announces that shortly before noon today our Senior Pastor Dr. Ken Hutcherson was ushered in the [presence] of the Lord. Please pray for comfort and peace for the family. The family asked that you give them some privacy at this time. Please no phone calls or [visits].”

Pastor Hutcherson was diagnosed with cancer thirteen years ago.

“I’ve had cancer for 13 years and I have been condemned to die for five,” the faith leader told TheBlaze in July. “Cancer is one of the greatest things that ever happened to me.”

Hutcherson said that “what cancer has done is given me an absolute focus on Jesus Christ, my Lord and savior.”

His remarkable story was even turned into a television show on TheBlaze TV called “Hutch,” which his wife described as a “profound gift” for their family. The show followed Hutch in his daily life and centered around a letter he was writing to his children.
