Ranger Exes Memorial - RHS Class of 1966

Terry Sutton TERRANCE "TERRY" WAYNE SUTTON, 72, passed away on Dec. 31, 2020. He was born to Howard & Erma Sutton in McCamey, TX on Feb. 7, 1948. He attended Ranger High School in the Class of 1966 at Ranger, TX but graduated from Hamlin High School. Terry received a bachelor's degree in Sociology and Social Work from Tarleton State University in Stephenville, TX. He served as a Sergeant in the U.S. Army for 4 years, two of which were in Berlin, Germany. In 1987 he married Jan Wu, and they settled down near the Twin Cities in Minnesota where they had their three children. Joseph, Pul, and Stephanie. Terry was a jack of all trades throughout his life. He worked in the oil field, as a ranch hand, master helicopter mechanic, social worker, financial analyst, and as a government auditor for the Texas Department of Agriculture which he retired from in April of 2019. He enjoyed fishing, gardening, ancestral research, reading, playing billiards, singing, and playing the guitar. His children all attended Texas Tech University in Lubbock where they became very involved in Christian ministry. Since then, Terry & his wife have actively supported college ministry and have hosted many Bible studies in their home. He loved the Lord Jesus, the church and caring for and mentoring others. Terry was someone full of wisdom and love. You could always depend on him to listen to you and he would always have an encouraging word or word of guidance on matter what the issue. His smile is something that everyone will remember and he had a talent for always making everyone around him laugh. When with his siblings at family gatherings, you could be certain to find him submerged in an intense game of 42. He is survived by his wife of 33 years, Jane Sutton; son Joe Sutton and wife Bekah; son Paul Sutton and wife Marguerite; daughter Stephanie & husband Russell Alliev, brother Tom Sutton (RHS-1956), sister Beverly Sutton; sister Sharon Parson-Rogers (RHS-1961) and numerous nieces and nephews. He was truly beloved and will be greatly missed.
