Steve Sutton of Noblesville, Indiana ate his final dessert on Saturday, March 16, 2024. After 71 years of enjoying life’s best food, booze, and sweets, he finally asked for the check, and since he’d been a waiter and bartender in his earlier years, he knew he needed to leave a good tip. It was this: “Don’t work too hard.”

Born on June 1, 1952, to Jerry Sutton and Shirley Meara Thomas, he never went by his legal first name of Charles in an attempt to avoid the nickname “good-time Charlie.” Despite his best efforts, the “good-time” lifestyle found him. He was a sociable man always in pursuit of fun and entertainment. After graduating valedictorian from Noblesville High School in 1970, he enjoyed exploring the country and sailing around the Virgin Islands. Jam sessions on the guitar and many other instruments were a major part of his life, and his ornery songs were sure to get the crowd laughing. When he wasn’t out entertaining, he was stripping… film negatives for the Noblesville Topics newspaper. And he had more stories about the exploits of him and the FNIA boys than anyone could ever recall. 

His family was also incredibly important to him. As the oldest of six, he always knew best. While his stubbornness could get on his siblings’ nerves, his three sisters⁠-Karen Huffman, Nancy Williamson, and MaryAnne Doi⁠-and two brothers⁠-Brian and Kent Sutton⁠-were often able to team up and out-wit him, making holidays and gatherings a hilarious time for his many nieces and nephews. The banter did little to hide Steve’s immense love and dedication to his family.

What Steve loved most in the world, though⁠-even more than a Boston cream pie⁠-was his daughter, Lauren. For 33 years he cared for her, taught her right from wrong, and made her smile. Last fall he kept his biggest promise to her and walked her down the aisle. She will miss all the joy he brought into her life, as will all of his friends and family.

A final send-off will be held at Syd’s Bar at 808 Logan St. on Thursday, April 4, 2024. Please join the family anytime between 4-7 p.m. in the upstairs lounge for one last “good-time” in honor of Steve.
