Robert McCutcheon Sr., 96, of Rockwall, Texas, passed away Aug. 30, 2017.
He was born in 1921 in Dallas, Texas, to Robert Joshua and Ava (Andrews) McCutcheon. His grandfather came to Dallas in the 1860s. Robert grew up on a dairy farm and bred and sold ducks and raised dairy calves as a young child. He served his country proudly in the United States Air Force and was a World War II veteran. Robert always had dogs and enjoyed spending time with his wife, kids and cows. A straight shooter, he never complained and left an impression on everyone he met. Robert enjoyed his wife's home cooking and a cold Shiner Bock beer. He was a quiet, stern, generous, no-nonsense man who was respectful and well respected in the Rockwall/Heath community. A man of faith, Robert was known for saying, "The Lord has been good to me." He loved his family and was a wonderful husband, father and "Paw Paw."
Robert is survived by his son, Bob McCutcheon of Plano, Texas; daughters Pat Vaughan and husband Jerry of Frisco, Texas, and Michelle McCutcheon of Rockwall; grandchildren Brad McCutcheon and wife Goodwin, Anne Crivelli, Phillip Vaughan, Payton Vaughan and Edmund Vaughan; great-grandchildren William and Bryce; and faithful dog Bleu.
He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 60-plus years, Mary McCutcheon; and brother John McCutcheon.
Services were held Saturday, Sept. 2, 2017.
