John William Suttmeier Jr., 88, passed on Wednesday, October 9, 2019 under hospice care at Midstate Medical Center, with his family by his side. After years of illness and pain, Jack is finally at peace in a better place.

He was a loving husband and friend to Dorothy “Dottie” (Murzyn) Suttmeier for 44 years. Born in Cairo, NY, on January 31, 1931, son of the late John Sr. and Winifred (Costello), he was predeceased by his brother Thomas Suttmeier.

After high school, Jack joined the U.S. Army, and was a veteran of the Korean War. He also worked in construction for several years before joining Prudential Insurance where he retired after 30 years.

Jack enjoyed traveling with his wife to places in Europe, the Caribbean Islands, and he loved cruising the most. He enjoyed the game of golf, especially in his later years with the super seniors, where he made good friends. He will be remembered by neighbors and friends for riding on his lawn mower and washing his cars.

Besides his wife, Jack is survived by his two sons, Wayne Suttmeier of Spring Hill, FL, and Craig Suttmeier (Patti Alter) of Wolcott, CT; his brother Raymond Suttmeier of Cairo, NY and his sister-in-law Maryann Dumin of Southington, CT. He is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, and friends.
A funeral service will be held on Friday, October 18, 2019 at 7 p.m. at the John J. Ferry & Sons Funeral Home, 88 East Main St., Meriden. Family and friends are invited to attend calling hours on Friday, prior to the service from 4 to 7 p.m. Burial will be private

In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory may be made to Yale Medicine, Thoracic Surgery, Daniel Boffa, MD, PO BOX 208062, New Haven, CT 06520-8062 or to a charity of one’s choice.

Dottie, I am very sorry to learn of Jack's passing. I will always remember him coming to my grandmothers to collect the insurance payments as I was in my footie pajamas. May the memories of your wonderful travels be of comfort of you during this difficult time.
