Mount Gilead, Ohio

Glenn Z. Sutherland, age 78, of Mount Gilead, passed away following a brief illness, Monday morning, November 19, 2018, at his home with his loving family by his side.

On March 18, 1940, Glenn was born in Colley, Virginia, a son of the late William D. and Ailcy B. (Fuller) Sutherland.  He graduated from Haysi High School in VA in the Class of 1959.

On his 21st birthday, March 18, 1961, Glenn married the love of his life, Audrey E. Imhoff.  They shared the last 57 wonderful years together as husband and wife.

For most of his life, Glenn worked as an automotive body repair man at numerous shops including Mathews Ford in Marion and C&D Chevy in Mount Gilead, from where he retired.

In his spare time, Glenn enjoyed being outdoors hunting and fishing, tending to his vegetable garden, and taking care of his lawn.  There is nothing he enjoyed more than spending time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Glenn’s orneriness and his great sense of humor will be missed by everyone who knew him.

Glenn will be dearly missed by his wife, Audrey, of Mount Gilead; his daughter, Dolores (Marty) Sterritt of Edison; two grandchildren: Issiah (Nichole) Sterritt of Mount Gilead, Tynafae (Chase) Gherman of Marion; two great grandchildren: Caden and Colton Sterritt; a brother, Adron (Gail) Sutherland of Mount Gilead; two sisters: Nina (Everett) Rice of Newport News, VA, Carol (Victor) Breeding of Davenport, VA; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his infant son, William Terry Sutherland; five brothers: Maynard, Clayton, Gale, Omar and Roger Sutherland; and three sisters: Lenis Thomas, Merle Fletcher and Tiny Va Sutherland.

Private services will be held by Glenn’s family at a later date.

  • Papal, thank you so much for everything you taught me. I’m so glad I could be your tool fetcher. I learned so much getting you a wrench or a screwdriver, or whatever else you needed to fix my go kart or mini bike. I definitely learned all my mechanical skills from you and I am grateful. You taught me how to skin a rabbit and multiple squirrels. We butted heads on multiple occasions, but now that I’m older makes me realize, we are one in the same. Both bull headed and I’m sure mom and mammaw will agree. Please be at peace I will take care of them both. I love you with all my heart. You are gone but never forgotten. Until I see you again

  • Audrey, Dolores and the entire family. My heart is very heavy and sad. I am so very sorry to hear of your loss of Glenn. He was a great man. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him. I can remember all the fun times we shared growing up and when I would babysit Dolores. Glenn would always join in on the fun. There is so many memories over the years that we can cherish. I Love you all. Lots of Love, Thoughts and Prayers to the entire family. I feel for you all.

  • I’m so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. My favorite memory of papal was the day After Nichole was able to bring Caden home from the hospital. I was over there helping her out, cleaning and such while she was taking a nap with Caden upstairs. Papal came to visit, asked me where his boy was, he was looking so excited, so I went up and brought Caden down, talk about a proud Grandpa, that man was glowing with love and pride. Melted my heart watching him with Caden. Issiah looks so much like him, and Caden looks so much like Issiah, his legacy will live on for a long time through them. If there’s anything I can do to help any of you, let me know. May God comfort all of you, love, Brenda Davis

  • Dee, Tyna & family,
    So sorry for the loss of your dad and grandfather. Hold memories close to your heart, and be blessed whenever something reminds you of him. Prayers for God’s comfort and peace at this difficult time.
