Harold W. Sutton, age 89 of Mt. Juliet, passed away July 25, 2021.

Harold was preceded in death by wife, Beverley Sutton; parents, John B. & Grace Sutton; sons, Wayne and Ricky Sutton; foster daughter, Cindy Shaver (Auld); and brother, Johnny Sutton.

Harold was a well-known member of the Mt. Juliet community whose career included working for Western Electric (AT&T) and being a Realtor for 50+ years in the Wilson County area. He was one of the founders of the first Mt. Juliet Little League field on the corner of Mt. Juliet Road and Lebanon Road. He later helped establish the current Mt. Juliet Little League front fields and helped raise money to fund the lighting on the fields. He helped in the restoration of Sutton General Store in Granville, TN, and has served as the Grand Marshall of the Granville Christmas parade alongside his wife, Beverley.

His many contributions to the community are not the only way Harold will be remembered. He will be remembered for his generosity, great sense of humor, and his ability to tell some of the best stories about himself and the history of Nashville. He will be greatly missed by his countless friends in the Mt. Juliet community. But mostly, he will be missed and dearly remembered by his loved ones as an awesome Dad and DeDe!
