Michael Charles Cuti, age 90, of Grand Haven, passed away on February 1, 2022 at Robbinswood Assisted Living where he had resided for almost four years.

He was born in Grand Haven, MI on December 4, 1931 to Anthony and Violet Cuti. He graduated from Grand Haven Sr. High and received an associates degree from Kendall School of Design. He served in the USAF and was stationed at Kindley Air Force Base in Bermuda. This is where he met Ruth Kennedy, and they were married there in 1952 and had daughter, Deborrah (Ralya), and son Michael. The family moved back to Grand Haven in 1954 and later another son, Charles, was born. After divorcing, Mike moved to the Grand Rapids area where he worked in the printing business. He later married Catherine Cole and they eventually moved to Tucson, AZ. The hot, desert climate suited him well. He continued in the printing business in sales for a company who handled some of the re-printing for notable southwestern artists such as DeGrazia and Rose and Erni Cabat, whom he enjoyed knowing. Mike moved back to the Grand Rapids area after divorcing and finally settled in Hudsonville, MI. He continued in sales and retired after many years selling for Custom Enclosures where he was top salesman for most of those years. He was always quite artistic, and would draw and paint, played piano by ear and even made his kids lovely desks to study from. He had a great sense of humor and enjoyed shooting pool, golfing, playing the slot machines, and attending the auto swap meets held in the parking lot by Gemmons Hardware where he showed his beloved 1934 Ford Coupe.

Michael is survived by his three children, Deborrah (Boulder, CO) and Michael and Charles

(both of Spring Lake, MI). He was predeceased by his parents, Anthony and Violet Cuti, his baby

brother, Charles, his sister, Rose (Hagstrom) and brother Richard.


A private memorial will be held by his children. Donations may be made to a charity of choice.

    I worked for Fideler’s Publishing Company in the 1960’s and Mike was my boss. He was wonderful to work for and a very nice person. I would run into him occasionally in Grand Rapids or the Grand Haven area over the years and it was always fun to see him again.
