Gary Wayne Sutton 1955 - 2016



Another cowboy rides away to meet his Lord in heaven.  Gary Wayne Sutton passed away February 3, 2016 after a lengthy illness.  He was born in Medford, OR on October 25, 1955 to Lloyd “Tuffy” and Dixie Ann Sutton.  He was an active member at Living Water Fellowship Church, as well as a board member.


Gary was a roper and rider most of his life.  He knew livestock and knew the kind of rope a cowboy should have.  He set out to start his own business and called it “Sutton Ropes”.  Gary’s wife, Robbie and sons Joshua Reed and Robert Caleb were instrumental in helping with the business.


He married Robbie Lee Williams on July 5, 1988.  He was a good husband and father to all of his children.  Gary will be dearly missed by his family and friends.  He never met a stranger, and always made friends while out selling ropes.


Gary is survived by his wife, Robbie Sutton of Jourdanton; daughter, Lauren Grace Sutton of Jourdanton; son, Robert Caleb Williams and wife Whitney of Boerne; and four grandchildren, Farrah, Coen, Cannon and Haven Williams of Boerne. He is also survived by three sisters, Sheryl Sutton, Janice Sutton and Diane Mellon; one brother, Daryl Sutton; one niece, Crystal Mothershead and husband BJ; one great nephew, Noah Mothershead; nephew, Justin Rolston and wife Sarah all of Washington State.
