First Flight Rotary event to dedicate memorial bench in Hayman Park in honor of Mark Cutler

Dr. Jay Taylor, president of First Flight Rotary Club of Kill Devil Hills, announced plans to dedicate a memorial bench honoring the club’s late president-elect, Mark J. Cutler, who died from a drowning accident off the coast of Duck on July 10, 2020 at age 64.

Family and friends are expected to gather with Rotary Club members and town officials on Memorial Day, May 31, to participate in a public ceremony dedicating a memorial bench to be placed at Hayman Park in Kill Devil Hills, near Cutler’s home.

“Mark Cutler had a knack for being a familiar face. He was a long time member of the First Flight Rotary Club, a former loan officer at the First South Bank, and a senior life guard at the YMCA. Mark was an avid Karaoke singer, always pleased to share a song,” stated the announcement from First Flight Rotary.

The bench will be dedicated by First Flight Rotary Club with assistance from the Town of Kill Devil Hills, where Cutler resided for many years.

Stan Keeler, chair of the Rotary Club Membership Committee recently said, “Mark had just been inducted to his office in the club two days before his tragic death. Memories of his encouragement and dedication to the ideals of Rotary will build a foundation for other Rotarians and people that he met through work and play.”

The event will be held at Hayman Park, located at 200 W. Hayman Blvd. in Kill Devil Hills on Memorial Day, Monday, May 31, 2021 at 11 a.m.
