Bub Sutton, 83, husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, passed away at his home in Fruita, with his wife of 62 years, Jeri, and his loving daughter, Tracie, by his side.
Bub is survived, in addition to his wife and daughter, his sister, Mary (Tom) Pilkington, of Ammons, Idaho, and his grandson Kamron (Keri) Cadwell, of Grand Junction, several great-grandchildren, and a multitude of nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his beloved son, Jay, in 1979, and three sisters and two brothers.
Born in Grand Valley (Parachute), Colorado, at home, Bub lived his entire life in the state of Colorado, except for his service in the Army in Germany. He spent his school years in Meeker, and then, working at the Colorado Game and Fish, lived in Carbondale, Yampa, Red Feather Lakes and Denver before buying The Dinosaur Store in Fruita in 1972 and starting Sutton’s Yard and Garden in 1979.
A gentle giant of a man, with a quick wit and a twinkle in his eye, he loved hunting and fishing and the outdoors and most of all, spending time with his grandchildren.
He will be greatly missed by those who knew him. No services will be held; however, a memorial will be held in May.
Donations may be made in his honor to HopeWest, Grand Junction, Colorado.
