David J. Sutter
David J. Sutter Native Islander, beloved father and brother, 81 David (Dave) J. Sutter, passed away peacefully on March 26 in Charlotte, NC, following several years of declining health related to dementia. He was 81. Dave was born and raised in the Pleasant Plains neighborhood of Staten Island, NY, graduating from Tottenville High School in 1956. After a brief stint in the U.S. Army, he attended St. Bonaventure University (class of 1961) in Olean, NY. He spent most of his adult life in central New Jersey, settling initially in Piscataway, followed by 25 years in Edison, and then Westfield before moving to a retirement community in Charlotte, NC. Dave had a first career as a salesman for Hallmark Cards, then became an independent retailer in downtown Westfield. He acquired Lancaster's Ltd., a card and gift store, from the original owner and ran it until his retirement in 2006. He was predeceased by his wife, Nora Brosnan Sutter, in 2016. He is survived by his two daughters, Mary of Charlotte, and Jeanne, of Portland, Oregon; five siblings; many in-laws; and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family. In his memory, please consider a donation to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, another food bank or the Ronald McDonald House charities.

I went to St. Louis Academy and remember the Sutter house up the hill from the school where there was an exit for the students to walk to the train in Pleasant Plains. I remember Mr. and Mrs. Sutter at mass at St. Thomas's and their family. The boys were so handsome and the girls were beautiful. One of David's brother's was in the class behind me at St. Louis when we had two grades together. I am not sure but was his name Robert??? He would be 77 or 78. My condolences to all of David's family.
