BEVERLY — John “Papa Jack” Cuttle, 72, beloved husband of the late Bernadette (Laverdiere) Cuttle, with whom he had shared 39 years of marriage, passed away suddenly at his home on Tuesday, August 20. Born in Fall River, Jack moved to Beverly when he was ten years old. He was the son of the late John and Angela (Martin) Cuttle.
