“Coach” Kenneth R. McNutt passed away in his home on March 16, 2017. He was loved and cherished by many, and will be missed as much as he was loved.
Kenneth is preceded in death by his father, Delbert McNutt.
He is survived by his mother, Faye McNutt of Comanche; brother Charlie McNutt and wife Betty of, Arlington; partner, Carolyn Olson, of Pearland; son, Scott McNutt and wife Theresa, of Dickinson; daughter, Kim McNutt Moreland and husband David, of San Antonio; daughter, Gay McNutt, of Denton; grandchildren, Sara McNutt, Shae McNutt, Brooke Espinosa and husband Damian, Nathan Moreland, Kristen Garcia and husband Eddie, Shelby Montanaro and husband Rey, and Whitney Crider; numerous great-grandchildren; nephews, Curtis McNutt and Chad McNutt; and niece, Stacy Strain.
In his early years, Mr. McNutt enjoyed deer hunting with close friends and camping with his family. When he wasn’t doing either of these, he was sure to be found on a football field helping to build the lives of the young men he held so near to his heart. His passion for teaching and coaching brought him to retirement from Alvin High School in 1985. He coached in Alvin from 1966-1977 and then accepted a position teaching in the vocational department, from where he retired.
As much as Kenneth loved his job, he loved his family. He had the pleasure of coaching his son Scott, whom he was so proud of. His oldest daughter, Kim surrounded him with grandchildren that proudly called him “Papaw”. Kenneth’s youngest daughter, Gay, honorably followed in his foot- steps and became a coach.
Mr. McNutt completed his life with long time partner and friend, Carolyn Olson.
Mr. McNutt lived to be 81 years old and his loved ones thought his life too short. His life to him was complete. He could tell a story like no other, and we will miss his stories, but what we will miss the most is the man, and what a man he was!
