Archie Sutton

Archie Rule Sutton was born on November 27, 1958 in Manhattan Beach, CA to Russell and Constance “Connie” Sutton. He was born on Thanksgiving Day and Connie went home and fixed Thanksgiving dinner for the family after having Archie. Archie never met a stranger, anywhere we would go, there would always be someone that he knew. He was the life of the party and a big kid at heart.

Archie worked for the City of Sulphur Springs for close to 30 years as a mechanic and retired to follow his dreams, ride his Harley, and spend time with his family. Archie married Debbi Elaine Lauer on August 25, 1980 in Westminster, CA, they would have been married 44 years this coming August. Archie loved his family, and they always came first, he loved going to drag races, rebuilding cars with his son Travis, and taking the car they built to the races. Anytime Archie could, he would be fishing, he loved it, but most of all he loved his family. He will be deeply missed by everyone who knew him.
