BELLVILLE: Avery Gerald “Cutter” Adams went to be with the Lord Wednesday, July 6, 2016 in Country Meadow Care Center. He was 92.

He was born March 29, 1924 in Piney, West Virginia to parents Roger & Ethel (Sturgis) Adams. After he was graduated from high school, he proudly served his country by joining the US Army and serving during World War II.

A beautiful young lady named Ruth Meneely caught his eye and the pair soon married on June 29, 1946. Cutter worked as a truck driver for years, where he was self-employed until retiring.

He was a part of the Masonic Toronto Lodge No. 583 as well as the Mid-Ohio Winnebago Club.

Cutter never met a meat that he couldn’t smoke. His specialty was smoking meats including boloney and sausage as well as curing bacon. He enjoyed being able to cook. He didn’t have a specialty because everything he made was delicious. He also loved to travel and simply enjoyed going different places.
