Frank McCutcheon

1927 - 2020

Francis “Frank” Burton McCutcheon - of Wiarton, and formerly of Burlington, peacefully at Gateway Haven, Wiarton, on Wednesday March 11, 2020 at the age of 92. Frank was the last of his generation. He was the last born son of Richard “Dick” and Elizabeth McCutcheon, the youngest brother of nine sons. His parents instilled in him the strong value of family and a solid work ethic, combined with a joy of the outdoors and play. He worked as a farmer, a mechanical engineer and a plant manager. He loved gardening, fishing, music and travel. He led a full life, complete with good times and bad. He married and lost through death and divorce, but always had love in his long life. He was blessed with five children, Leeann Newby (Maverick), Janice Burt (John), Rick McCutcheon, Jill Khalaf and Kim McCutcheon. They, along with their spouses, brought 12 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren into Francis’ life. Many more children enriched his life as his family members’ lives evolved. He will be greatly missed by them all. He has joined his parents, brothers and their wives and some of his nieces and nephews in heaven. Frank is predeceased by his first wife Jean (née Byers, in 1952), his second wife Mae (née Byers, 2005), his son-in-law John Newby Sr. (1994) and his grandson John Newby (1991), his daughter Jill Khalaf (2016), and his son-in-law Robert Khalaf (2016). Frank was a proud former member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch #208, Wiarton. Frank’s family extends their deepest gratitude to the entire team at Gateway Haven for the love, support and care of their father. Arrangements entrusted to the Thomas C.
