Charles R. Chuck Cutter, 54, of West Salem, died November 12, 2010 at Wooster Community Hospital.
He was born June 15, 1956 in Wooster, son of the late Charles A. and Theresa Gallo Cutter.
Chuck was a member of the Waynedale High School Class of 1974.
Surviving are his wife of 33 years, Elizabeth Beth? Ewing Cutter of West Salem; children Charles J. (Beth) Cutter of West Salem, Shawn C. (Carina) Cutter of Tampa, FL, Kristin L. (fianc? Ray Anthony) Cutter and Joshua C. Cutter both of West Salem; grandchildren Cole, Kayla and Gianna; sisters Connie (John) Grieves of Kissimmee, FL, Linda Sue Cutter of West Salem, and many nieces and nephews in the area and Florida.
Along with his parents, Chuck was preceded in death by a brother Garry L. Cutter.
Chuck was a successful entrepreneur who started Cutter Oil Company with his wife Beth nearly 30 years ago. Through dedication and perseverance, they grew the company and today all of their children are involved in the family business. Chuck was a well-respected and knowledgeable producer and member of the Ohio Oil and Gas Association.
In addition to oil and gas, Chuck had a passion for farming that began when he was a child on his family?s farm in Apple Creek, Ohio. For him, farming was part business, part hobby, and one of the many ways he taught his kids about hard work and common sense.
He enjoyed family vacations and boating with his wife and close friends in southwest Florida where he also served on the board of their condo association and Sanibel Harbour Yacht Club. Chuck was honest and was known to tell people how it was, whether they wanted to hear it or not. You always knew where you stood with him. He was a great storyteller who never forgot a single detail and loved to entertain those around him at his home in West Salem.
Chuck was a friend to many, a father-figure to some, and will forever be dearly loved and missed especially by his wife, his children and their families.
