I have so many wonderful memories of Cut from my 16 years at MCT, I wouldn’t know where to start. I will cherish all those memories for the rest of my days. My sincere condolences to Cut’s family; you have lost a gem.

Godspeed my friend, and I look forward to the day we meet again.

He was a friend of the Ordway family for many years as well as a business partner with my deceased father over the course of many years. Goodbye Cutty and may your rest be peaceful. Ed Ordway.

I was sad to hear this news from Janice. The Cuttings were our neighbors and friends growing up in Warner. "Richie" will be remembered for many reasons; mostly I just remember that he was always kind to me, the little sister of 2 of his friends. Although I no longer live in Warner, many of my childhood memories are from that special neighborhood on "the plains". Love and hugs to Janice and Joyce.

I enjoyed many hours with Cut during our visits to Warner in 2006 through 2014. He enjoyed showing me his antique trucks and explaining how his home's wood-fired heating system worked. He was proud of the technological arrangements he designed which made a versatile and economical system. I also shared with him an appreciation for the old photography of Ralph Pratt. Cut had inherited that priceless collection from his father and worked to scan them into digital format for preservation. Cut was a colorful character, and will be missed in his home town.

Very sorry that Cut is gone. He did a fantastic job of mapping all the trails for our snowmobile club, Kearsarge Trail Snails, and helped the club and the Town of Warner in many other ways. A truely good man.
