William Leo “Buddy” Sutton, age 88, passed away peacefully on June 1st, 2024, at his home in White Bluff, TN. William is survived by many friends and family but leaves his legacy behind with his grandson and great-grandchildren.

William was born on November 7th, 1935, in White Bluff, TN to William Willis Sutton and Estelle Baker. He worked as a mechanic at Cadillac and spent his younger years in the Army. He loved spending time with his friends and all his family. He enjoyed his 4 am coffee dates with his best friends at Lucky’s Gas Station, but most importantly, he loved tinkering in the barn working on cars and mowing the lawn.

While William left us far too soon, the impact he had on his family and friends will be felt for years to come. Despite battling cancer and dealing with the effects of a stroke, he never lost his sense of humor. William loved picking at his friends and joking with his grandson. He had a great ability to tell stories and make others smile. He will be greatly missed! William truly lived life to the fullest and his memory will forever be held in the hearts of all that knew him.
