Karen and Casey, I am sorry to hear of your dad's passing. He was a great guy! –always so pleasant and positive. I remember him coaching basketball at St Paul's as well as cheering on the girls' teams at FVL. I bet he really appreciated being able to spend his final days with you, Casey. I will be very happy to see Mr C again in heaven.

I am so glad that I went to see him when I was in Appleton last June. He knew me and we visited for about an hour. He was something special in my life. I am looking forward to when we meet again in heaven.

What a wonderful influence dear Mr. C was on so many people. I feel blessed to have had him in my life when I was growing up. Karen and Casey - You'll be in my thoughts with sympathy.

Mr. C was a wonderful person and will soon not be forgotten. He made a mark on my young life playing basketball for him, things I will never forget. My thoughts are with you Karen and Casey.
Dave Hoeffner left a message on November 24, 2015:
Mr. Cutler was a great example of what a happy, pleasant Christian man should be. He was always filled with the joy of the Lord. He lived Matthew 25:21 everyday and does even more so today.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Casey and Karen, I am so very sorry to hear of your father’s passing. You two were so blessed to have him as your dad. Mr. C made a lasting impression on me with his contagious smile, laughter, enthusiasm for life, passion for basketball, and big bear hugs. He was my favorite coach…ever. Every time I saw him at church, his bigger than life smile and cheerful hello warmed my heart. He will always have a special place in my heart. I hope you find comfort knowing he is in God’s loving arms and reunited with your dear mother. May the Lord bless you and give you peace during this most difficult time.

I leave Alaska every October to hunt and golf in Wisconsin for two weeks. I always visit my sister Shirley Verhagen in Appleton. Shirley introduced me to Jim about 15 years ago. Jim was one of the most likeable people I have ever met. Jim was a great cook and his Bloody Mary’s were superb. The Happy Hours at Green Valley Town Homes are a testament to Jim’s organizational abilities. There is no doubt that Jim is currently organizing the angles and teaching them the beneficial effects of a good Bloody Mary.

Casey & Karen, We are very sorry for your loss. We spent many happy times with your Mom and Dad at FVL events- especially working with Fans of the Foxes. If I remember right it was Jim who always extra salted the popcorn "so we can sell more pop" and then he would flash that boyish grin! They were always so very proud of their two girls! Casey and Kyle I am sure he so very much appreciated your care in his final months- What a blessing you were to him! Sincerely, Ron & Jana Lea Olm Gold Canyon AZ

Condolence Karen! So sorry to hear the passing of your dad. It was always a pleasure talking to him whenever he and your mom come to watch you play at the former CW.

Sure Jim and Betty are looking down on you and your families. My mom and dad, Pat and Mel Hanson will greet him with open arms.
Sharon Hanson Smith left a message on November 22, 2015:
Karen & Casey, You probably do not remember who I am. I went to St Paul's for many years. My Dad and Mom, Mel & Pat Hanson, were very good friends of your parents. I remember both of them. My Dad and Mom are probably talking about the old days with both your parents. May the Lord give you the comfort of His loving arms around you.

Karen & Cassie, The world is a better place as a result of your Father and Mother's love and gifts. I had the opportunity to be welcomed into your family in 1986. Jim was very special to me...a surrogate father for a TN girl moving to Timmers Lane! Lots of parties, meals and laughs we shared over the years! I was honored to help with the Navy reunions and misc. events. He was always helpful, kind, athletic and loved to drive! I miss our Aspen coffee breakfast club and happy hours. He taught me many things and will hold a special place in my heart. God Bless!

Im so sorry for your loss. I was one of the lucky ones to take care/be a part of Jim's life the past year. I will never forget him singing to me " Pistol Packin Mama" all the time. He always knew how to make me laugh and put a smile on my face. Keeping you in my thoughts
Pamela Cipala left a message on November 21, 2015:
Karen, I have so many fond memories of both your folks. The fun times at baseball, the trip to the all-star game with Karen which I will never forget. You are at peace and will continue to watch over your family. May you rest in Peace.
Shirley left a message on November 21, 2015:
I am so thankful for the few years that Jim was a big part of my life. We shared so many laughs together and special times..Happy hours with his condo friends, long bike rides for breakfast with his Texan campers, visits to Mexico....pig roasts with his family in Il. so many wonderful memories. And there is his driving... A white knuckle experience. I too miss him, and knowing Jim, I am certain he is up there arranging happy hours with departed family and friends, organizing bike hikes and baseball leagues , and teaching the angel choirs his beloved country western songs ......just listen....
Ella Pieka left a message on November 21, 2015:
Karen and Casey, I'm truly sorry for your loss. My deepest sympathies and prayers to you and your families. Your Father was one of my coaches when I was at St. Paul Lutheran. My late Grandfather served on some boards/committed with Jim. He left a great impression on me as my coach, he was a good, mind, wise Christian man. I just lost my Mom and saw Jim's obit when looking for hers. Heaven gained to wonderful people this week. Again, my sincerest condolences.
Eleanor and Frank Bellotto left a message on November 21, 2015:
We met Jim years ago in Boynton Beach when he was visiting Shirley. You couldn't help but love him -- he was so easy to get along with. We have so many fond memories of good times with Jim -- singing in church, having many laughs singing on karaoke; playing dominos and other games; his cooking (loved his pancakes and Bloody Marys after church). He brought joy and happiness to our lives. Jim was a true gentleman and will be missed by all who knew him (especially us)! We thank God that He sent Jim into our lives, however short a time it was. We loved him immensely! He so much reminded me of my Dad, who I also loved very much! 9loved his pancakescaring ways

So sorry to lose such a smiling, always happy friend. We extend our deepest sympathy but also rejoice with you knowing he is with our precious Lord and Savior. Many happy memories from St. Paul and FVL. We are glad we will be home for the funeral.

Dear Karen and Casey, I am honored and grateful to have known your dad. He was a wonderful man, and his life had a positive impact on anyone lucky enough to be part of it in some way. He always spoke of his family with great pride and love. I hope you both can find some comfort in knowing that he was loved and respected, and he will be missed greatly by all.
