Alton Bond Sutton Jr., of Summit, went to be with the Lord on April 17, 2022. Al was born to Alton B. Sutton Sr., and Catherine Ratcliff Sutton on June 26, 1943, in New Orleans, La. He grew up in Monticello and graduated from Monticello High School in 1961. Following his graduation, he attended Copiah-Lincoln Community College, Wesson, where he received his associate degree in 1963.
In the summer of 1965, he married Frances Jordan. They built and operated Al’s Fish Camp in Wanilla in 1967, which he and Frances operated until her death on Nov. 26, 1996.

They resided in Summit until his passing.
Al loved to fish and read better than almost anything. He and Neta were members of the Heart-to-Heart Ministry in Summit.
