Marshall C Cutright
September 18, 1918 – February 7, 2019
Marshall C. Cutright was born September 18, 1918 in Elk City, Oklahoma to Ura and Jessie Cutright. His family was very important to him. As a young man he joined the Civilian Conservation Corps and was sent to Wyoming. He was paid $30 dollars a month and $25 dollars of that had to be sent home to their families.
Marshall married Ilogene Warren on October 8, 1949 in Curry County, New Mexico. They were married for 54 years before her death on June 22, 2004. In December of 1952 they welcomed their only child, Marshall Jr. who was the light of their life. In his younger years he was a farm laborer in the Oklahoma Panhandle. Later he moved to Amarillo. He owned a Phillips 66 service station until road construction caused it to be closed and then had several trucks for a few years. He delivered bread for Meads Bread for many years. He will be remembered for giving out small loafs to anyone he knew. He was very involved with the Boy Scouts Troop 80 where he was Assistant Scout Master for many years. He went to several National Jamborees as an instructor. He was a volunteer baseball coach for several years when his son was young. After he retired, he enjoyed helping his son on the farm feeding and caring for the animals. Although hard work, he enjoyed raising and feeding bottle calves on the farm. He loved vacationing with friends in scenic Colorado and New Mexico and fishing. He roasted and sold peanuts at Tee Anchor flea market for 28 years where he was lovingly known as “Grandpa”. He always had dogs that were his special companions.
He attended every baseball game his grandson played in that he was physically able. One of his proudest moments was watching Scott graduate from college. He often spoke how proud he was of his grandsons’ accomplishments in life. Several of their special memories were fishing together at Monument Lake. On one trip, they used a small boat and got their lines tangled in the propeller and had to use the oars to get back to shore. The family would like to thank BSA Hospital staff for the care and support that was given to Marshall. Also the Nurse Practitioner, who directed his medical needs during the last months of his life and the special CNA’s who showed their compassion in his care.
He is preceded in death by his wife Ilogene, his parents, two brothers F.F. “Chick” Cutright, Harold Cutright and one sister, Helen Elliot.
He is survived by his son Marshall Cutright Jr and Ginger McNeil, grandchildren Marshall Scott Cutright and Breely McNeil along with many loving friends.
