Newport News High School Class of June 1937

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   We have yet another sad edition of the NNHS Newsletter today.    Marion Cutchins, Class of June 1937, has passed away in Newport News at the age of 87.

  From Eddie Perry ('65) of TN - 08/31/07 - "  Marion Cutchins":


Several people may remember Mr. Cutchins.  He was an NNHS grad, but not sure what year.  He was a Little League coach back in the late 1950's over near Stuart Gardens.  He was very active at Orcutt Avenue Baptist Church.  Thought you might want to pass along.

Thanks for your outstanding work,


   I'm very sorry to learn this news. Thank you so much, Eddie.

  From June Veneris Collie (Hampton HS - '62) of VA - 09/01/07 - " Picture of M. Cutchins":


My husband's aunt graduated from NNHS in June 1937 and we have her class picture which includes all the students and teachers.  I noticed that Mr. Cutchins age was the same as hers, and I found this picture of an M. Cutchins.  I believe it is his picture.  The original document has been damaged and not all the students are recognizable.

I thought you would be interested in seeing this.
June Veneris Collie (HHS 62)

   Thank you so very much, June.

Jean, Wayne and Wyatt,
My heart absolutely aches for your family. Your husband and father was truly the perfect example of what I feel God wanted in a man. He was human but he was always (to me) passionate, kind, sensitive to all people and always showed love. His physical presence in the church has been missed but his spiritual presence will always be with us. I pray that God will fill your days with loving memories and allow the loss to be filled with family and friends rejoicing over Marion's return home. What a wonderful day when we all gather together at the throne. We all share your loss.
Pam Chalkley (Hampton, VA) - August 30, 2007
We send our love and sympathy to your family. Marion was a wonderful "father figure" and Christian example. He was a dearly loved friend who will greatly missed by his family and church. We'll miss his singing and upbeat attitude. We are so glad Marion was a part of our lives.

Dear Mrs. Cutchins, Wayne and Wyatt,
I'm so sorry to hear of your loss of Mr. Cutchins. He was a fine man. He coached me in the Little League BIB Tournament in Colonial Heights with Harry Knight when I was a boy, and was my Apprentice instructor and mentor at the shipyard. My wife and I would often see him at sporting events. I'll always remember his kind ways. You are in our prayers.
Jim DeBerry (Newport News, VA) -  August 30, 2007


   Our deepest sympathies are extended to the Cutchins family and their friends at this time.

   Y'all take good care of each other!  TYPHOONS FOREVER!

                          Love to all, Carol
