William Rex Sutton, our loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend, (82), went to be with his wife and heavenly father on November 30th, 2017.

He was born on July 9th, 1935 to Verdi and Margaret Sutton in Grantsville, Utah.  He graduated from Grantsville High School and went on to serve an LDS mission. He served in the armed forces during the Korean War. He also worked and retired from the Tooele Army Depot.

Rex married his sweetheart, Julie Leatham on February 12th, 1960, in the Salt Lake temple and they were blessed with two sons, Anthony and Jeff. Rex dedicated his life to family, church, and hard work.

Watching sports, camping, family time, and attending his sons’ and grandchildren’s sporting events were some of his favorite pastimes. He was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served many years as a ward clerk and librarian for his local ward.

Rex was proceeded in death by his parents, 4 siblings and wife. He is survived by siblings: Thelma, Alta, and La Dean (Wayne), sons: Anthony, and Jeff, grandchildren: Christa, Ceilly and Kaden, and great-grandchild, Moses.
