Austin Bryan Sutton-Rogers(1997 - 2014)

Austin Bryan Sutton-Rogers was given to us on Nov. 6, 1997 and we entrusted him back our Heavenly Father on April 9, 2014. He was 16 years old.

Austin was a special young man to his family and friends, and the number of lives he was able to positively impact and touch in such a short amount of time with us here is staggering. He is survived by his father Thomas Sutton, his "Honey," Paula McLaney, and countless others who loved him beyond the scope of words.

The family wants to thank everyone all for your thoughts and prayers through this difficult time.

Services will be held at Milligan Assembly of God Sunday, April 13. Visitation for friends and family will begin at 1 p.m., followed by services at 2 p.m. with Rev. Mike White and Rev. Donnie Cadenhead. Burial will follow in the Svea Cemetery. Services were provided by Brackney Funeral Service, Crestview.

The family is accepting flowers and if you'd like to make a donation, they ask that you give in Austin's name to the Jason Foundation for the prevention of youth suicide (
