Chesterville, Ohio

Wade T. Sutherland, age 74, of Chesterville, died Thursday evening, May 28, 2015, at Morrow Manor in Chesterville.

On January 6, 1941, Wade was born in Tazewell Co., VA, the son of the late James Paul and Mary Jane (Pruett) Sutherland.

He was a machinist at Tecumseh in Marion for many years.  He also spent time on the road as a regional truck driver.

Wade enjoyed spending time in the great outdoors, especially groundhog hunting or shooting his guns at home at his makeshift shooting range.  He loved Chevy’s and drag racing in LaRue and Mount Vernon.

He will be dearly missed by his three children: Larry (Robin) Sutherland of Chesterville, Sherry (Bob) Potter of Mount Gilead, Tom (Angie) Sutherland of Mount Gilead; seven grandchildren; 11 great grandchildren; and a sister, Elizabeth (Earl) Montis of LaRue.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by three brothers: Harold, Bill, and Homer Sutherland.

A private family memorial service will be held at a later date.

Rather than flowers, memorial contributions in Wade’s name may be made to Hospice of Morrow County, 228 South St., Mount Gilead, OH 43338.

Snyder Funeral Homes of Mount Gilead are honored to have been chosen to serve Wade’s family, and your condolences may be expressed to them by visiting www.SnyderFuneralHomes.com.

  • Your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I have great memories of the Sutherland Family. Wade and I were in the same class at school and his family came to the store at least once a week or more. Later when we moved to Cardington and needed wood all I had to do was call Wade. Here comes Wade with a big smile and good wood, he always helped me stack it. He will be missed by anyone who knew him.

  • My thoughts and prayers are with all of you, I am happy I had the opportunity to meet him…sending hugs, prayers and blessings…Lots of Love to the Sutherland family.

  • My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. May you find comfort in all the memories that you have. May God wrap his arms around all of you and hold you tight during these difficult times.

  • So sorry for your loss. Our deepest sympathy to your family. Love and prayers. Randy and Shelly Whited Kemmer and Family
