Billy Elliotte McCutcheon

December 28, 2020


On Monday, December 28th, 2020, Billy Elliotte McCutcheon, 83, of Evergreen, kept his appointment with God at Medical Center Enterprise in Enterprise, AL.

Mr. McCutcheon was born at home in Morgan County, AL, to John Elliott McCutcheon and Ruth Owens McCutcheon. He graduated from Morgan County High School.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his siblings, Joe, Carolyn, and Tommy; his first bride, Glenda Sue Grantland Owens McCutcheon; his second bride Eva Black Smelley McCutcheon and grandchild Kristi Kwanja Davis.

He is survived by his children, Phyllis Jeannae Kwanja Owens, Vonnie Valeria Owens, and Christopher Billy McCutcheon (Michelle); his step-son, Stanley Smelley (Judy); grandchildren, Judge Davis Meriwether and Julia DaVonna Davis Wilson (Ed); two great-grandchildren, Sarena Kendra Meriwether and Kristen Cierra Meriwether and one brother, Phil Robert McCutchen (Linda).

At a very young age, Billy joined the Alabama National Guard and formed his business McCutcheon Ditching Service in Morgan County.

He married Sue in August of 1963 and three years later, due to his health complications, they moved from Hartselle to Evergreen where he worked for Poole Truck Line until he retired over 30 years later. He came out of retirement to hire on with the Poole’s as they formed Evergreen Transportation, where he worked until he retired again. He won many awards and bonuses for his superb driving and safety habits.

After 33 years of marriage, Sue kept her appointment with God. Then 7 years later, he married his widowed neighbor Eva (Mrs. Jack Smelley) after she presented him with a huge bowl of chicken and dumplings as repayment for his fixing her mower. They attended Bower Memorial Baptist Church where they married in March 2005. They were married 15 years when she kept her appointment with God in June.

Billy McCutcheon was a very good and special man.  He was a man’s man. He was strong as an ox, worked twice as hard as one, cared for everyone he met, and was always ready with a smile. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father,’ grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend to all he met. The world now has a huge void without him…

He is already tremendously missed by many people.

He is now trucking Heaven bound to rejoin his loved ones there.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, May 1, 2021, at 1 P.M. at Hartselle Memory Gardens. Cope-Keahey Funeral Home of Evergreen is entrusted with these arrangements.
