Obituary for Sylvester Joseph Sutter

MOUNT HOREB-Sylvester Joseph Sutter, age 87, of Mount Horeb, entered eternal life on Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2018, at home surrounded by his wife and family. He was born on Jan. 2, 1931, to Albert and Bertha (Haag) Sutter at home in the town of Perry. He graduated from Mount Horeb High School Class of 1949. Sylvester then proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War on a battleship. After four years in the Navy he returned to farming.  On June 12, 1956, Sylvester married the love of his life, Louise Greenheck, at Sacred Heart Church in Lone Rock, Wis. They celebrated 62 years of marriage this year. Together they farmed in Springdale for 60 years and raised their family on the farm. Sylvester loved his family dearly and they could always count on him for anything. He was a man of great faith and was a member of St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church in Madison. He enjoyed traveling with Louise in the U.S. and Europe, Switzerland, Australia and New Zealand. He was proud and humbled to be able to make a trip with the Badger Honor Flight to Washington D.C. to visit the war memorials.
