Harold Jr. McCutcheon March 2, 1935 - July 31, 2014.
I have been right 79 years of my life and just because I am no longer here in person does not
mean that I am, or will ever be, wrong.
Harold McCutcheon passed away July 31, 2014, after surviving quadruple bypass surgery and a
month long struggle he succumbed to a lung infection, though he was a true fighter to his last
breath.
Harold was always a pillar of the community, involved in various jobs and positions throughout
his 79 years including sailing the Great Lakes, Master Feeds in Oshawa, the Milk Truck for
Cooper Trucking, Owned McCutcheon Shell in Mindemoya, was a part time ambulance driver
for many years as well as a jail guard and town councillor. He was involved in the Masons,
Shriners, Lions Club, Curling Club, was a hockey coach and scout leader and served on the
board of Directors at Little Current Manor, was a School Board Trustee and served on the Board
of Directors at the Manitoulin Health Centre.
As well being heavily involved in the community, Harold was a family man through and through.
He met his beloved wife Mary Ann of 56 years in Mindemoya as she had taken a job working for
Mae Russell at the switchboard so that she could chase around a young man in Mindemoya
(Wonder who that could be).
Survived by Wife MaryAnn (nee Dryden), children Terry, wife Judy, Cathy, husband Dave, Sandy
(Deceased) husband Arran and his pride and joy, Grandchildren Meghan, Cailey and Corey,
Fiancé Lucie Lambert, Leeann and Sara, and Cassie, husband Kurt Noble, and Delaney

PS. Randy, Thank you for the offer of the position of assistant coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs,
although I wont be able to accept, I should now be able to offer you Divine Intervention. Cito I’m
coming for you!
And Dad, in your own words, we leave you with a “Tear and a Kiss”.

I have many fond memories of Harold. I remember the time he pulled me out of Lake Mindemoya after I hit the bridge and my car sank. He was also a good medic. Harold was bigger than life and I will miss his laugh.

Grandpa Harold was the Grandpa that kids dream of. He could never do enough for the grandkids. He was always ready with advise, laughs and love. He will be truly missed. Rest in peace.

Didn't know him very well, but I enjoyed some of those short conversations we had, when we met. Definitely his own man.. And the kind of guy, that you could be sure you knew where you would stand with him on any given day. The Mindemoya community has lost an asset. Our thoughts are with the family.

I grew up in Mindemoya and to me, Harold and MaryAnn McCutcheon were Mindemoya. Such nice people, good for family and community, steadfast and always the same, said hello to everyone. I shared the same great grandparents as Harold, Mr and Mrs. John Perkins Cooper. Harold's station was on what was their front lawn years ago. I'm glad we had a nice chat in the restaurant this spring and last time I saw MaryAnn she said "hello Len" to me, so bright and cheery. Terry, Cathy thinking of you......you can always be proud, your folks, truly great people.

We will miss you dear neighbour. You were Autumn's "grandpa" that she never had and she will deeply miss coming over to visit you and share a juice box. We have loved to get to know you over the past years. Rest in peace.

To all the family
Harold was extremely thoughtful at the time my husband Kal Finnila died. After taking Kal to the hospital where he died. He offered to come with me to my dad's Harve Haner to tell him and Nola the sad news. He was worried about how my dad would take the shock of this at 4 a.m.
Bain always enjoyed chats with Harold when they met often at the post office.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Shalom
Bain and Lynda
