August 22, 2005

Dr. Kay Robinson Cutler, a World War II veteran and a psychiatrist, died of undetermined causes Thursday at his home in Phoenix, Baltimore County. He was 84 and had suffered a stroke four years ago.

Born in Idaho, he spent his childhood in Salt Lake City before joining the Army Air Forces in 1942. He served as a pilot in World War II and spent nine months as a prisoner of war in Germany, according to his son Kimball Cutler of Freeville, N.Y.

Mr. Cutler married Wyona Barney in 1947, and in 1950 he received a medical degree from the University of Utah.

He remained in the Air Force, working in aerospace medicine. During that time, he and his family were stationed at bases throughout the country and in Germany, his son said.

He retired from the military with the rank of lieutenant colonel in 1967 and moved to Phoenix that year. He began a second career as a psychiatrist and worked in mental health in Maryland for 30 years, retiring in 1997.

A private service was held Saturday.

In addition to his wife and son, he is survived by two other sons, Scott Cutler of Richmond, Va., and Randy Cutler of Phoenix; a daughter, Melanie Warfield of Sykesville; seven grandchildren; and a great-granddaughter.
