It is with sadness that we have lost an asbe Foundation Board member, a colleague, and a dear friend. Bob Sutton was much more than an engineer with a keen eye for design; he was also an historian, photographer, husband, father, and a friend to many. He was a complex yet simple individual who had a keen understanding of personal interaction. Bob loved to talk at length about the nature and evolution of automotive design by recalling many personal stories from his past. There was an interest and curiosity that he had about so many things, and a way of engaging others with his curiosity. Being endlessly positive and passionate about creativity and detail, he had insight in solving difficult issues or policy. Through the years, he took his talents to Chrysler, General Motors, Hawtal Whiting, Porsche, and finally Griswold Engineering. Even in “retirement”, Bob was still active in bringing his expertise to new designs and products. And for the past six years, he found time and a place in his heart to be of service to others by sitting on the Board of Directors of the asbe Foundation.
His family and friends gathered for his memorial service on August 30 to mark his passing and to celebrate a life well lived.
Robert Sutton, 1931 - 2014
