Carl was born on August 15, 1945 on the Dollar Road in Heuvelton . He was the son of late Louie & Zelia (Petrie) Cutway. He was raised on the family farm in DePeyster with his siblings. He attended Heuvelton Central School where he was an officer of the Heuvelton FFA and participated in the Heuvelton Band and Chorus. He graduated high school at that age of 16 years old. He then married Linda D. Warren on February 8, 1964 at the home of her parents in Morristown. Carl became a member of the Plumbers and Steamfitters UA Local 117 in 1969. Several years later, he became a co-owner of Norwood Plumbing, Inc., where he worked until his retirement in 1997. Carl always opened his home and camp for friends and family. If you stopped in for a visit you were sure have a drink, hear a story or two and a couple one liners. He was sought out by those close to him for his wisdom and advice in all areas of life. Carl was a fan of NASCAR and NY Giants football. He was an avid outdoorsman throughout his entire life; he especially enjoyed sharing his love of the outdoors with kids. He was also envied for his green thumb and was known for saving dying plants, growing beautiful flowers, and having a hearty vegetable garden. Carl had a soft heart for animals, and enjoyed watching the birds and squirrels from his back deck with his Shared dog Misty. His hobbies included constructing airplanes made from beer cans, woodworking, hunting, fishing, gardening, spending time at Cutways French Hollow Camp, and traveling with his wife.
Carl was also a member of BPOE 772, UA Local 117 & 73, Ormsby Pond Club, Rainbow Rod & Gun Club, Sons of Amvets Post 1997, the Heuvelton & Rensselaer Falls Volunteer Fire Departments, and was an active Pee Wee Hockey Coach in Canton and Boy Scout leader for many years when his kids were young.
