Deb and Don, So sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. He sure was a piece of work. Wonder what your mom had to say when he came thru the gates? I am truly truly sorry to hear of his passing. Great guy! Sincerely, Tina

I always crossed paths with Mr Sutton through the years. When he walked and then when he was in his jazzy with Buddy. Always friendly and just a real nice person You don’t meet that many nice people these days. His spirit lives on and I hope the house he lived in is bought by genuine people as he was. God bless and prayers. Buddy will miss him deeply. Cindy Washkwich 2 miles up the road and out on Spring Mills
