Alan Curtis Cutler

April 24, 1952 — June 23, 2024

Centerville, UT

Alan Curtis Cutler, born April 24, 1952, to Lowell and Marelda Cutler of North Ogden, Utah, returned to his heavenly home June 23, 2024, after a hard fought battle with cancer. Al was raised in North Ogden, with two brothers and one sister, where he had a knack for finding mischief whether with his brothers, friends, or the church tractor. He graduated from Weber High School in 1970, then attended an electronic vocational school in Arizona.

He served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Milan, Italy. He shared his love for the gospel and good Italian food with his family his whole life.

Al went into television broadcasting starting in high school. He moved to Nampa, Idaho, to work at KIVI TV. While living there, he met and married Susan Hennis Cutler in the Logan Utah Temple. They later moved back to Utah and had 4 children: Lara, Brent, David, and Andrea. He and Sue were looking forward to celebrating their 50th anniversary this August.

Al worked as a director/producer for the University of Utah at KUED for almost 40 years. He was also a camera operator for Jazz games, University of Utah athletic events, General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and many other amazing events. He loved working side-by-side with his son Dave in broadcasting for many years. A highlight was traveling the world to work numerous Olympic events. They were the closest of friends. He also tolerated his daughters. 

All kidding aside, he had a soft spot in his heart for his daughters Lara and Annie, who share his sense of humor and love of beaches.

Al loved to travel, and was very aware of his frequent flyer miles. He enjoyed vacations to Hawaii with family and a trip to visit his mission in Italy with Sue after retirement.

Al hit his stride as a grandpa, and is beloved by his grandchildren. He made each one feel loved and special, and always supported their games, recitals, musicals, and accomplishments big and small.

Al loved NASA and rocket launches, the Thunderbirds and aviation, The Beatles, hummingbirds, Maui whales, and Hawaii, and could always be found wearing shorts, flip flops and a Hawaiian shirt regardless of the season. Quietly witty, there was never a shortage of dad jokes and laughs.

Al is survived by his wife Sue Cutler, children Lara (Kevin) Crandall, Dave (Lindsay) Cutler, and Annie (Andy) Baggs, 11 grandchildren, and his sister Carolyn (Alan) Curtis.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers Bruce (Dawn) Cutler and Doug (Darla) Cutler, and his son Brent.
