Many happy memories of spending days by the pool, time at the lake, or evenings eating chinese food from The Mandarin with Leamon and the Suttles. He leaves behind the Legacy of a strong family.

At the heart of my childhood, and that of my own children, was time spent with Leamon and the Suttle family. At the lake, by the pool, or eating chinese food with Leamon was always a pleasure. Great conversationalist, ski boat driver, and model dad. What a great legacy he leaves in his children.
