Aubrey J. “Mr. Poochie” Suttoon, 88, a resident of Bayou Vista, passed away on Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at his home, surrounded by his loving family.
Mr. Poochie was born on September 6, 1932 in Morgan City, the son of Dewey Suttoon and Gertrude Mayon Suttoon.
Mr. Poochie spent many years as a boat captain as well as a port captain and was very well known throughout the marine industry. He always worked hard to provide for his family and had a work ethic that was second to none. That work ethic started early in Mr. Poochie’s life, because at the young age of 8 he started shining shoes to make money. He loved his family and friends and cherished every moment that he was able to spend with them, but he especially loved the family get togethers. In his younger years, Mr. Poochie loved to go hunting, trapping and shrimping.
He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by four children, Wilbert “Poochie” Suttoon and wife Yvonne of Bayou Vista, Betty Robison Rivet and husband Charlie of Berwick, Gettel Suttoon of Bayou Vista and Cammy Crochet of Patterson; 11 grandchildren; 20 great grandchildren; one sister, Aline Romero and husband Russell of Patterson.
