In the early 1930's, Abe and Charlie Schutt started working for C B Gutchess as loggers in the woods, with their equipment- axes and teams of horses. Ever since, Schutts have been a very integral part of Gutchess Lumber Company and it's companies. Our condolences to George's family, friends, and co-workers from the decendents of Clair and Irene Gutchess. Elsie Gutchess, family historian
We have just learned of George's passing. We want your family to know how much we thought of him. We became acquainted with him and Jill through Jill's care of my mother and mother-in-law and it was at that time we went to the Dover Speedway for the races. We enjoyed the races and them also! A new grand baby was born that weekend and how excited they were. We especially enjoyed them as a couple who was dedicated to each other. We would see George in Cortland frequently and talked all kinds of racing. He was a proud and hard working man and will be missed by many. We are in Florida for the Winter and home is in Harford.
