John Paul McCutchan, 59, of Fairmont, died Tuesday (Aug. 29, 2017) following a long, hard-fought battle with glioblastoma.
He was born March 19, 1958, in Parkersburg, a son of William "Bill" McCutchan and Barbara Jo Cunningham McCutchan.
He is survived by his wife, Nancy Nabors McCutchan of Fairmont.
In addition to his wife, John is survived by three sons, John McCutchan and his wife Lori of DeBary, Florida, Tyler McCutchan and his wife Stephanie of Fairmont, and Michael McCutchan and his fiancée Francesca Perry of Fairmont; one grandchild, Lydia Renae McCutchan; two brothers, Jim McCutchan and his wife Jenny of Stuarts Draft, Virginia, and Larry McCutchan and his wife Tracy of Pittsburgh; one sister, Beth Tanner and her husband Ray of Webster Springs; a brother-in-law, John Nabors; as well as many nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts and cousins, including a special cousin, Joey Sutton and his wife Sheila.
John was a 1976 graduate of Brooke High School and a member of Meadowdale H&H Chapel United Methodist Church. John was the proud owner of McCutchan's Heating and Cooling of Fairmont for 20 years, and they just completed a new shop in Kingmont in March of 2016. He previously worked as a coal miner at Martinka, Shoemaker and Enlow Fork coal mines.
John enjoyed restoring cars, especially Ford Broncos, with Ed Stalnaker. He was an avid hunter and deep-sea fisherman out of the Oregon Inlet, North Carolina.
John loved his family, friends and employees at his shop. John made many investments, but his greatest was his three boys. John was a very humble, hardworking man.
The family would like to thank all the health-care providers for their kindness, care and love.
