WAYNESVILLE — Ronnie Sutton, 72, was carried home by the angels on Sunday, Jan. 3, 2021.

Ronnie was born in Sevier County, Tennessee on May 14, 1948, to the late Raymond Sutton and the late Zenia Pearl Shultz Sutton. We give thanks for the joy and happiness that Ronnie brought to his family and friends all throughout his life.

He was indeed blessed with a kind and gentle spirit. Listening to music and watching western movies were favorite things Ronnie enjoyed. Always giving heartfelt hugs, was his way of showing his love for everyone. Those who knew Ronnie lost a shining light in their lives today but we will hold onto his precious memory forever.

Surviving are his sister, Anita Parks and her husband Gene Parks of Waynesville; his brother, Raymond Sutton and his wife, Lisa Sutton of Canton; several nieces and nephews; a special friend and caregiver, Sherry Moore; friends, Amanda and April; and also his special puppy, “Sadie.”

A graveside funeral service will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 10, 2021 at Bon-A-Venture Cemetery, Newfound Road in Canton. Pastor Chris Wilmoth will be officiating.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Mr. Sutton’s memory to Haywood Hospice and Palliative Care at 43 Bowman Drive, Waynesville, NC 28785.
