Ronald "Ron" Albert Sutton

Obituary for Ronald "Ron" Albert Sutton

August 19, 1967 - June 28, 2020
San Antonio, Texas | Age 52


The man, the myth, and the legend Ron "Rhino-Ronaldo" Sutton died on June 28, 2020. Ronald Albert Sutton was born in Kentucky on a beautiful day in August 1967 to his mother, Martha Morrison and father, Ronald Thomas Sutton. The birth and death of this great man, however, is not nearly as relevant as the days and nights that he lived to the fullest between those two dates.

Ron was preceded in death by his birth parents, adoptive parents: Tim and Phoebe McBee, and brother Bo Sutton. Ron was a loving father of 4 children Angelica, McKenzie, Mariah, and Nathaniel: otherwise known as Shoog, Gracie- Loo, and Bear. The mother of his children, Susan Sutton, accompanied Ron in life for 30 years. Ron was engaged to Christine Gerhard prior to his passing.

Ron is additionally survived by his siblings, Barbara "bug" Merrill, Christine Elliott, David Sutton, his daughter in law Jessica Tapp as well as numerous nieces, nephews, extended family, and a lifetime of friends.

Perhaps the most important to Ron was educating people on the Zaloboo Chicken, Rhino Status, his love for short shorts and "Rock-n-Roll." Ron always persuaded his family and friends to persevere through any situation they encountered. Ron's guidance and support was not limited to closing a car deal, ordering tacos, how Chelsea FC is the BEST soccer team, waking early to bike rides and how to be the best human you can possibly be.

Ron loved everyone he encountered whether he met them on the street, or they were family. He was driven to provide, create, and love the life that he lived in every fashion possible. Ron opened his heart and his home as a vessel to spread the word of God and actively participated in fellowship at Community Bible Church.

Ron will never be forgotten by the countless lives he touched.
