Charlestown-Nevis—The thanksgiving service for the life of the late Cecil Lester Sutton was held at the Manning’s Seventh Day Adventist Church on Sunday 30th August.
Hundreds of family members and friends were in attendance in support of the grieving family.
Glowing tributes were paid to the deceased 74 year old educator who taught in primary schools throughout Nevis for some 38 years.
He also became an established electrician in his retirement years and a renowned musician who mastered the keyboards.
Two of his off springs in the late Michael Herald Sutton and Daron Sutton also established themselves as accomplished musicians, with the late Michael Sutton going on to attract world wide acclaim for his musical genius, which all started at the hands of his humble dad.
Musical tributes were paid by some of the top gospel groups and individuals on the island. These included: The Gingerland SDA church; the Charlestown SDA church; the Brown Hill SDA church; the Nevis Community Chorale; persons who were taught by him to play the keyboards and Carmella Lawrence.
The eulogy was jointly presented by Mrs. Janice Sutton-Tyson who spoke to the exploits of Cecil Sutton the community man, family man and a missionary for Christ and daughter Taffae Cadean, who spoke to his excruciating journey after he was diagnosed with cancer and the tremendous ways in which God helped him and the family throughout the crisis.
The sermon of the day was presented by the renowned evangelist, Pastor Roosevelt Daniels who was not only born in Butler’s village but was even more significantly, introduced to a life in Christ by the deceased.
The emphasis of his sermon was geared to the persons present as he urged them to seek salvation urgently as a life outside of Christ means HELL and eternal destruction.
The body of the late Cecil Lester Sutton was interred at the Manning’s Seventh Day Adventist church cemetery.
