Michael Dean Cutter June 2, 1964 - December 12, 2020

Service recording is available at this link: Michael Cutter Service.


Michael Cutter was born on June 2, 1964 and went to Heaven on December 12, 2020 at the age of 56, after a long and courageous battle with ALS.

Michael graduated from Putnam City West High School in 1982 and earned a degree in Management Information Systems from University of Oklahoma, in 1987. He was a successful home builder and developer, and owned a textiles company, DMI Wholesale Textiles.

Michael’s first love was his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. But his adoration for his family and sports was a close second. His great big ornery smile, sparkling eyes and ability to forgive, were the special qualities that anyone who knew him will never forget.

He was an outstanding athlete in both baseball and football.  He was instrumental in leading the  PC West high school football team to their only victory to date in the State Championship, in the 1981 season. Years later, after he was diagnosed with ALS in 2016, his high school classmates rallied together to honor him by establishing a scholarship in his name, A Cut Above. He was honored to be able to present the award to the scholarship’s first recipient. In 2019, both his amazing character and his stellar performance on the football team, earned him a seat in the Putnam City Hall of Fame, in its inaugural year.

Michael continued playing baseball and football throughout his adult life, coached his daughters’ softball teams and enjoyed watching their sporting events.

Mike is survived by his wife, Cara Lakey Cutter; his father, Melvin Cutter (and wife, Debbie); his mother, Joyce Coleman Cutter; his siblings, Larry Cutter (and wife, Yvonne), Perry Cutter (and wife, Frankie), Billy Cutter and Crystal Cutter; his daughters, Rachael Cutter, Megan Serrano(and husband, Eddie) and Kirstin Cutter; his bonus children, Jordyn Wynn, Jonathan Wynn and James Wynn; and his four grandchildren, Alliyah, Makaila, Silver and Kayson Michael. Michael is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins, with whom he was very close, and loved very much.

The family would like to extend sincerest gratitude to the Putnam City West Class of ’82 and all of his other friends and caregivers, for going above and beyond to help Michael and his family in his journey through ALS.

Visitation for Mike will be held at Buchanan Funeral Service on December 17, 2020 from 1:00pm -8:00pm. The family will be at the funeral home between 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm that day.

Due to COVID safety mandates, the funeral is very limited capacity, allowing for mostly family and very close friends on Friday, December 18, 2020 at 1:00pm, at Buchanan Funeral Service. However, there will be a virtual presentation of the services, which can be found on the funeral home website Buchananfuneralservice.com
