Robert G. “Bob” Cuthbertson

Robert G. “Bob” Cuthbertson, 93, of Bradford, PA, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 18, 2017 at the Bradford Regional Medical Center.

He was born on February 24, 1924 in Kane, a son of the late Percy and Marcella “Sally” Griebel Cuthbertson.

He was a 1941 graduate of the Kane Area High School.

On June 10, 1950 in the St. Michael Byzantine Catholic Church, Sheffield, he married Mary Juban who survives.

WWII Veteran
He was a U.S. Army veteran who served in the Pacific Theatre during World War II.  During his service to his country he attained the rank of Sergeant and served with the 37th Infantry division as a Medic with the 37th Cavalry Reconnaissance Troop.  He received 3 Bronze Battle Stars, 1 Bronze Arrowhead and a Bronze Star Medal.  While in the service he attended the Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Blacksburg, VA.  When he was discharged from the service in 1945 he surprised his family by showing up unexpectedly on Christmas Eve.

Prior to his military service he worked at Bell Aircraft, Buffalo, NY and after being honorably discharged he worked for G.E., Struthers Wells and Dresser Manufacturing from 1949 until his retirement in 1987.

He was a member of the St. Bernard Catholic Church where he served as an usher for many years.  He was a member of the Knights of Columbus.  He bowled in the Dresser league at the former Star Lanes and in the mixed double league with his wife at Byllye Lanes for many years.  He loved to go fishing, read and work on his crossword puzzles.  

 In his younger years Bob and Mary frequently went out to go dancing.  He was a self-taught master wood craftsman who made many pieces of furniture for his family.  His last big project was a roll top desk that he gave to his son.  After he retired he attended the local YMCA daily for the past 30 years where he would work out on the machines or swim.  He was a devoted husband and family man who was strong in his faith, which he passed on to his children.

In addition to his loving wife of 67 years, Mary Cuthbertson of Bradford, he is also survived by two sons, Thomas Cuthbertson of Manchester, CT and Dan (Charlotte) Cuthbertson of Bradford; two daughters, Carol Ann (Jim) Vinca of Lewis Run and Patricia (Mike Hammond) Cuthbertson of Ischua, NY; one sister, Elizabeth “Betty” (Paul “Gene”) Westerburg of Kane; one brother, John “Jack” (Carol) Cuthbertson of Orchard Park, NY; two grandsons, Michael (Olivia) Mascho of Bradford and Craig Cuthbertson of Bradford; three granddaughters, Melissa Mascho of Norfolk, VA, Danielle (Scott Mang) Cuthbertson of Erie, PA and Carly Cuthbertson of Bradford and several nieces and nephews.
