It is with great sadness that we inform you that our friend and former NAPIM Executive Director Jimmy Sutphin passed away on May 8th, 2015. His wonderful spirit, timeless humor and good will towards all will be fondly remembered and sorely missed by all who knew him. Farewell old friend.
James “Jimmy” Hoynes Sutphin, a.k.a. “Inky Jim” age 82, a longtime community member of Hudson, Ohio died peacefully on the evening of May 8 after a short but strong battle with cancer.
Jimmy was surrounded by his family as he passed into heaven. Jim had a long, rich history of service in Northeast Ohio from his contributions within the printing ink industry to countless volunteer hours both with Rotary and other civic and religious organizations. He will forever be remembered for his generous, thoughtful, positive and grateful spirit as recognized by the last award bestowed upon him by the Rotary Club of Hudson, “The Service Above Self Award.”
He is survived by his wife, Louise (Dolence); children Mary Louise Sutphin, James H. Sutphin Jr., Ann Elizabeth Nock (Mike) and Susan Bernadette Sutphin; grandchildren Allyson Marie, Ryan Christopher and Nicholas James Sutphin, Michael Charles and Madeline Mary Nock. Loving brother of Mary Sutphin (deceased), Jane Leitch, Carolyn Leitch (deceased), Alberta Stoney and Cal Sutphin. And all of his nieces and nephews who Jim kept in close touch.
