He enlisted in the military at the age of 18 and served for a year before he was honorably discharged.

His first romantic partner was Vina Ethridge, with whom he had a son, Eugene Patrick Hutchins Sr. His first wife was Isabella Mary Bryden, with whom he had a daughter, Betty Jean (Payne Macomber) Reinan.
