John B. Kuttler, 79, Trenton, passed away on June 1, of injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.
John was born on January 15, 1939, in Trenton, New Jersey, to Josef and Maude (Wiedner) Kuttler, and grew up in Bordentown, New Jersey.

Since that time, John has enjoyed great success and happiness as a farmer, a husband, a father and grandfather.
John was blessed with extraordinary intelligence and common sense, and a work ethic second to none.
