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.

There will be NO VISITATION HOURS. A Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Monday, May 18, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Mary Catholic Church, 340 N. Main St., Hudson, OH 44236.
