Ashton Kutcher’s Father Has Passed Away
Ashton Kutcher and his family are mourning the loss of the actor's father, who passed away last week.
According to an obituary posted by Cedar Memorial, Larry M. Kutcher passed away on August 8th at the age of 74. He is survived by his wife, Colleen of Center Point, Tausha (Kenneth) Kordisch of Lake Charles, LA, Christopher (Mila) Kutcher of Los Angeles, CA, and Michael (Kristen) Kutcher of Fort Collins, CO; stepsons Craig (Addie) Jones of Cedar Rapids and Brian (Tatum) Jones of Mt. Vernon; fourteen grandchildren; one great-grandchild; sisters Rita Kutcher of Moline, IL and Marie Taylor of Oxford; several nieces and nephews; and his personal butcher T-Bone Taylor, according to the obituary.
Larry Kutcher served in the United States Marine Corps from 1967-1970 and then worked for both Wilson's Foods and General Mills in Cedar Rapids. His obituary said that Larry had an extraordinary work ethic and a deep care for those around him. He stood up for the little guy and no matter the circumstances and genuinely believed “Life is good!"
Larry Kutcher and Ashton's birth mom Diane Finnegan divorced when Ashton was just 16 years old, according to DC.com. She ended up marrying Mark Portwood. Larry would go on to marry Colleen in 2015. Services were held on Saturday at Cedar Memorial Chapel on Saturday.
We all send our condolences to Ashton and the entire Kutcher family during this difficult time of loss. Memorials can be made to Trees Forever and St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
