Randy was born and raised in Tofield (Bardo area). He was born Sept 5, 1951 and grew up in the house his father built. He was proud to still own the property at the time of his passing on March 17, 2019.
Randy was predeceased by parents Abe and Myrtle Sutton, and siblings Doug Sutton, Larry (Butch) Sutton, and Evelyn Nelson.
Randy had his first open-heart surgery in 1967 at the age of 16, due to rheumatic fever and spent that year recovering in hospital. Things weren't always easy for him, but he was helped by his dedicated wife Sharon Sutton, and by his faith which was so important to him. He died early Sunday morning due to complications with pulmonary fibrosis and congestive heart failure at the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute (University of Alberta Hospital).
Randy is lovingly remembered by his wife Sharon Sutton; his daughter Dawn Sutton (Cory) and son Kevin (Carina) Sutton; four grandchildren, Emily, Kaylee, Leo and Wyatt, who were the lights of his life and brought him great joy in his last few years; also his siblings Eunice Parent (Ed Parent) and Wanda Craigen.
