He leaves his wife of fifty-three years, Margaret Ellen (Fitch) Cutler; and two daughters, his eldest, Sheila Cutler Sohn, PhD, and her husband Andrew “AJ” Sohn, and their children, Carter and Elise, of Concord; and his youngest, Sherry Lynn Cutler, and her partner Todd Washburn, Sherry’s son Seth Gilchrest of Lancaster, and Todd’s children, Alyssa and Jack Washburn of Acton. He leaves his sister Marsha Brothers and her husband Ray of Lake Havasu, AZ; many brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews, his very special family in Texas, and many dear friends. He was pre-deceased by his brother Richard E. Cutler and an infant son.
Larry was born in Clinton on December 28, 1944, son of the late Herbert & Elisabeth (Nourse) Cutler. He was raised in Lancaster and graduated from the Nashoba Regional High School, Class of 1963. He proudly served our nation as a Sergeant in the United States Army during the Vietnam War and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for meritorious service. Larry returned home safely to begin his lifelong career in his family business, Lancaster Auto Service, working alongside his father for many years and later owning and operating the garage until the time of his passing. In recent years, Larry and Ellen enjoyed traveling, venturing to Texas, Florida, Hawaii, and numerous destinations. His further hobbies included fishing, camping, dancing, and spending time with family, especially his grandchildren. Larry was always more kind to old ladies and animals and his sarcastic wit endeared him to everyone he encountered.
