Obituary for Larry A Sutton

Larry A. Sutton passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of September 20th, 2019, following a brief battle with late stage cancer.

Born July 31st, 1950 in Henry County, I to Robert J. and Annetta (Hudson) Sutton, Larry was a lifelong resident of New Castle, IN and a beloved husband, father, grandfather and coach.

Larry graduated Walter P. Chrysler Memorial High School in 1968 where he was a 4 year letterman in wrestling, serving as team captain for both his junior and senior years. He continued his wresting career and education at Indiana University before returning to New Castle a year and a half later to marry his high school sweetheart.

Larry retired from the Chrysler Corporation after 34+ years of employment, working in several capacities, including 6 years of service in the Communications Department. He was a member of UAW Local 371.

Most notably, Larry was a coach with the New Castle Wrestling program, serving in various capacities for over 20 years. Beginning as a high school assistant coach under Rex Peckinpaugh, Larry moved on to become head coach of the New Castle middle school team for several years, amassing a record streak of 106 consecutive dual meet wins during his tenure. He assisted and later lead the New Castle Wrestling Club for over 18 years.

Aside from his prolific contributions to NC Wrestling, Larry also coached Little League football, and was involved with Little League baseball all-star teams for 3 years. Most recently, he enjoyed rugby, supporting the Wabash Rugby Club, and both the White River and Indianapolis Impalas men’s rugby clubs.

Larry had a lifelong love of photography and the outdoors, enjoyed gardening, was an accomplished artist, and often crafted in various mediums.

Life’s greatest pleasure was the time he spent with his wife and family, and his beloved dog and best buddy, Gable. Larry is survived by his wife LuAnn, whom he spent 49 wonderful years with, and his 2 sons; Lee Sutton (wife Anmarie with daughter Lana and son Carter) of Parker, Colorado, and Dan Sutton of Kansas City, Missouri. He was preceded in death by his parents Robert and Annetta Sutton of Lake Ann, Michigan.
