Cleofus was a very young boy when his parents passed away and was raised by an older sister, Ilena Vann. He attended school in Rentiesville, Oklahoma and served his country honorably in the United States Army.During his lifetime, "Pat", as he was affectionately referred to, lived in Muskogee, Oklahoma City and Wichita Falls, Texas, as well as Hutchinson, Kansas. He was employed for 30 years at the City Glass, which was also known as Wichita Falls Glass and Mirror Company.
"Pat" returned to Checotah in 1990 to assist his sister, Ilena in the care of her ill husband. Mr. Nutter resided at the Honor Heights Tower, where he made many friends. He enjoyed playing dominoes and tried to get a game started every morning and evening, very possibly because he felt he was the domino king. He enjoyed outdoors, especially at the family homestead near Checotah. He was an expert, taking nothing and trying to make something.Cleofus was the last survivor of his generation of the Nutter family.
