I am saddened to read of the loss of this great man. I was an agent for Suddath for twenty five years. What a wonderful mentor! My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Mrs. Suddath you have my deepest sympathy in the passing of Mr. Suddath. I thought the world of him. I worked for Suddath 12 years and had more respect for Mr. Suddath than any person I have ever worked for. I will miss him terribly but have thought of him many many times since I left. He will be in my thoughts forever.

I met Dick Suddath and his lovely B.A. when I first came to All Saints back in 2001. I grew to know and admire and ENJOY him over the years. We were in several Bible study groups together and his insistence on using his mother's old King James version of the Bible, his insights and his devastating timing with a punch line all made him one of my favorite people there. He will be greatly missed.

Our prayers and thoughts are with you, Mrs. Suddath, and the family! I was so sorry to hear of Mr. Suddath's passing. He was such a good family man, boss and friend. I enjoyed working for Mr. Suddath as his secretary for several years, and he always made me feel appreciated. He will certainly be missed by all.

I will always remember Mr. Suddath as a warm, vibrant and generous man. We had many wonderful discussions at All Saints and in his home. He was so proud of his family and his love for Mrs. Suddath shone from his eyes when he looked at her. He will be missed by everyone who was blessed to know him. My prayers are with his family, may you all find comfort in knowing that he is with the Lord that he so dearly loved.

To all the Suddath family, we are keeping you in our prayers. Mr. Suddath and my Grandmother Lovejoy taught me to love the wilderness and that you can and should enjoy life at any age! They left me in the dust on many a canoe trip and Mr. Suddath always told me I could be the first female President of the United States. He was a wonderful example to all around him and will be truly missed. Loving you all and keeping you in our prayers. Ellen Lovejoy + Lila Lovejoy

My heartfelt condolences to the Suddath Family. He was truly a great man. My husband was an employee for 42 years and when he became ill, Mr. Suddath visited weekly (an often times Mrs. Suddath was with him). He read excerpts from his book to him, talked about how he met his wonderful wife, and never left without giving him courage to fight his battle with cancer and always gave him financial support. He was truly a great man with a big heart. Our prayers to the family.

When I was disabled in the late 80's and early 90's, I was a benefactor of Dick's benevolence. I don't know how I would have made it without his kindness and help. I can never express fully the deep gratitude that I hold for him Dick loved God and the All Saints community, and we all loved him in return and will dearly miss him Right on, Dick!!!.

What a wonderful and loving person Dick Suddath was. Even though I didn't know him on a personal basis, he always treated me like a long-time friend. He was very delightful, charming, and a consummate man. His time has now come for him to go to a heavenly place and to count his tremendous amount of friends here below.. God bless his family. Soon will gather together to tell of his wonderful stories.
