Lindsay Cutler 1/69

Lindsay Cutler was born on 30 January 1947 and completed his secondary schooling at Church of England Grammar school in Brisbane. He then moved to Melbourne and completed an Honours Degree in Economics at Monash University in 1968 before commencing National Service in early 1969. On graduation from Scheyville he was allocated to RAAOC and posted to Army Headquarters Canberra as a Staff Officer in the Directorate of Recruiting.

Lindsay married Roslyn in Canberra at the end of 1969 and the family stayed on in Canberra at the end of his National Service Commitment with Lindsay working at the Bureau of Census and Statistics while completing a Master of Economics at ANU prior to returning to Melbourne in 1972 where he joined National Mutual. Lindsay then decided to take on actuarial studies qualifying as an actuary and thereafter working as a Consulting Actuary in the Financial

Services Industry until his death on 18 October 2013.

Ros and Lindsay had four children (and four grandchildren to date) and faith and family were at the centre of their family life. Lindsay was active in the community for many years serving as a Scout Leader and as Treasurer of his childrens kindergarten and as Conference Treasurer of the Churches of Christ.

Lindsays passionate recreational interest was hiking which took him to many parts of the world in later years and he had only recently returned from completing a trek across England with his brother when he suffered a major fatal heart attack on 18 October 2013.

While not active in OTU affairs he maintained an interest and was looking forward to catching up with his 1/69 classmates in Melbourne over Anzac Day 2014. Vale Lindsay Cutler.
