The world lost one of the truly good ones on December 2nd when Fred Cutler succumbed to his extremely hard fought battle with cancer. Anyone who has ever met Fred knows that he approached his fight with cancer with the same zeal and determination he demonstrated throughout his life - from the days he won the national drag racing championship, to his record setting swim career, his stellar business career, and even the marathon he finished to celebrate turning 60. His battle with cancer was one battle, however, that proved too tough for even his extraordinary resolve.

We will celebrate Fred’s life the way he wanted and deserved
later this spring with a traditional surfer’s “paddle out”. We will spread his
ashes on the Southern California waves, the place he especially loved, where he
can surf in peace for eternity.
For those of you who would like to honor Fred’s memory with
a donation, we encourage you to donate to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
This cause has extra special meaning for Fred for not only was it the disease
with which he fought his last fight, but it was the disease that he helped his
Granddaughter fight and win. Their research can help reduce the number of
these web sites we’ll all have to visit in the future.
