Cutler JohnCUTLER, Barrington John - Passed away on Sunday, February 21, 2021.

He was born on December 20th 1943 in Bromley-on-Kent, England. 

The first child of Harry and Lorna Cutler, Barry spent his infancy in his grandparents’ home while his father was still in active service in Europe. 

It was not long before Barry was joined by his brother Nigel and then close to 14 years later by his sister Bonnie.

The bond between Barry and his siblings was never more evident than in his last days when he called regularly just to hear their voices. 

Barry started his working life in mid 1960s at Bell and then moved to the Royal Trust in 1968.  Starting at the Royal Trust would not only mark the beginning of a successful and fulfilling 50 year career at the Royal Trust and then Royal Bank of Canada, but also the start of his family life being where he met Karen Forbes.

To say that Barry was a good husband and father is an understatement. Barry was an exceptional husband and father. 

The end of Barry’s life was marked with a life altering cancer diagnosis that brought with it some suffering, but also the opportunity for so many special moments of meaning and love.  Barry faced his illness with the same resolve and optimistic spirit that marked his work and home life. 

Karen, Kirsten, David and Michael  would like to thank Dr. Gabor Kandel, Dr. Carol Swallow, Dr. Albiruni Abdul Razak, Dr. Esmail Al-Ezzi and the nursing staff at the Sarcoma Clinic Mount Sinai Hospital 12th Floor for their exceptional care.

Donations in Barry’s name can be made to Mount Sinai Sarcoma Clinic* and Wellspring (Brampton).

We love you and will miss you Dad, Barry.
