I received word this past week about the passing of a Michter's employee. Elaine Stoll called me to tell me that Tom Cuttle, 74, had been killed in a vehicle accident in Schaefferstown over the weekend. According to Dick Stoll, Tom was the Storekeeper-Gauger at Pennco/Michter's. Due to that position at the distillery, he was trained and became an agent for the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms. Dick remembered Tom as being a great guy and said they both were good friends during their years together. Tom went on to open a beer distributor in Lebanon after his years at Pennco/Michter's. I never knew or met Tom, but I wish I had. I'm sure just like Dick and Elaine, he was a great man with great stories and a kind heart. The Michter's community has lost another great person.
