Jim Cutberth

Jim Cutberth, two weeks shy of his 86th birthday, passed away on May 10, 2018 at Methodist Germantown Hospice care.
Known to many as the “candy man”, Jim never met a stranger. Whether it be the store, bank or doctor’s office, he would greet you with a Werthers.
Jim was born on May 26, 1932 in Middleton to the late Claude and Mary Addie Cutberth. He moved to Memphis in the early 1950’s. It was there he married Mary Ruth Chunn and lived for more than 50 years. He was an Electrician and member of the IBEW local 474 for 60 years. In 1997 he retired and moved to Sardis. After the passing of his wife of 62 years in 2016, Jim was never the same.
Jim leaves behind two daughters Linda Stolting (Ken) of Mt. Juliet, Tenn., Melissa Drum (Doug) of Bartlett; four grandchildren, Heather, Joel, Justin and Callie; and one great-grandchild, Cooper.
