Terrance Lee "Terry" Sutton



Terrance Lee "Terry" Sutton, 61, a proud member of the "San Poil of The Colville Indian Reservation" passed away Monday afternoon, January 25, 2016. Born December 10, 1954, in Nespelem, Washington, Terry attended high school in Wilbur, Washington, where he excelled in all sports, including football and basketball, and qualified for the Washington State High School Wrestling Championship before graduating in 1972. Following high school, Terry worked for a time as a forester before entering into the trades, during which time he traveled throughout the western United States as a carpenter and sheetrock man. Terry, who though a true free spirit, always was up for an adventure and never shied away from the "wild and daring," was always willing to drop everything to help someone in need. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends fishing, golfing and always the jokester – Terry loved to clown and make other people laugh.

Predeceased by his grandparents: Kathleen and Jimmy Burke, Terry's legacy lives on through his soul mate, Yvonne Aubertin; mother, Leona Sutton; children: Brandon Sutton and Masyn Sutton; grandchild, Scarlet Rose Sutton; brother, Darryl Sutton (Karen Stensger); sisters: Dianne Sutton, Shelley Thomas (Larry) and Gwen Gua; numerous nephews and nieces; and his dear friends, David and Veronica Nee.

Terry's wake was at 7 p.m., Thursday, January 28, 2016, and his funeral service at 10 a.m., Friday, January 29, 2016. Both services were held at the Keller Community Center in Keller, Washington. Terry's burial ceremonies followed at the San Poil Cemetery in Keller.
