Mr. Nathaniel Cutter was born on June 3, 1949, in Savannah Georgia, to Deacon David Cutter and Mrs. Levata Cutter who preceded him in death. Nathaniel was the fourth of seven children whose life was filled with laughter, joking and making everyone feel loved.

Nathaniel graduated from Richard Arnold High School in 1970 and enlisted in the Army the same year. He served his active-duty tour in Germany, which resulted in him suffering a medical condition. As a result, he retired with an Honorable Discharge in 1973. Nathaniel later shared marital vows with Mrs. Yvonne Butler Cutter who preceded him in death.

Nathaniel’s life changed in the summer of 1984 when he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. He became a member of St. John Baptist Church where Pastor Matthew Southhall Brown, whom he loved and respected, became his mentor and spiritual godfather. Nathaniel’s dedication to the ministry was displayed in the times when he would walk miles to church and only missed services when he became ill. The measure of Nathaniel’s love for his church family spoke volumes of their love for him as well.

Nathaniel was an amazing carpenter and enjoyed making furniture and items such as fruit bowls, coffee tables and picture frames. He designed beautiful pieces that we treasure and hold on to today. During his senior year of high school, Nathaniel was recognized and awarded for his carpentry work on the WSAV News.

Nathaniel had a passion for Gospel music and Gospel quartets. This love stemmed from his father who started several male Gospel groups and quartets around Savannah. He would spend hours listening as they rehearsed at his parent’s home.

With an admiration for his friends and community and the influence of the late Mr. James Holmes and Mr. Joe Murray Rivers, Nathaniel became a member of the Frank Callen Boys Club where he developed a love for baseball.

The memory of Nathaniel’s gentle, kind and respectful spirit will remain in our hearts forever.

Nathaniel is survived by six siblings, all of Savannah: John Wesley (Pearl), Mary, David, Jr. (Elizabeth), Yvonne, Michael (Vanessa) and Dennis Milton; six aunts and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
