WILLIAMSBURG - George Suttle Jr., 84, passed away Thursday, Feb. 5, 2009 at Sentara Williamsburg Hospital.
He was born May 7, 1924 in Newport News. George joined the Army in 1943, serving in the European Theatre and later transferred to the Philippines. After returning home in 1945, he joined the family established jewelry store, originally started by his grandfather, Nasrella Suttle. Upon the retirement of George's uncles, Jack and Isor, he purchased the business and in 1972, moved from the original location, 25th and Jefferson, to Prince George Street in Williamsburg. On his retirement in 1985, the family business closed after serving the public continuously for a century.
George was a member of the Newport News Elks, the Peninsula Watchmakers and Jewelers Guild, president of the Jefferson Avenue Shopping Area, Inc. and past district and post commander of the VFW.
George was preceded in death by his father, George; mother, Louise; and brother, Charles.
He is survived by his brother, Thomas R. Suttle and wife, Dorothy; sisters, Marian S. Powell, Doris S. Kinder and husband, Ray; many nieces and nephews.
George requested his body be donated to the Virginia Anatomical Program.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Newport News or your favorite charity.
Since George requested no service, family and friends are invited to the Kinder home, 106 Wilderness View, Yorktown, on Feb. 14, at 4 p.m. for fellowship. View and post condolences on our online guestbook at dailypress.com/guestbooks.
