Dear Suter family,
I had the privilege to be George's Admin Assistant. I never met someone so kind, trusting and caring. George (or Mr. Suter) as I referred to him was a wonderful manager. He worked diligently and was often away from his family, but somehow was always there for the important moments. This was during the time of no technology. He managed, he negotiated, he was a person of conviction, was fair, and always gentle when it mattered most. He was full of heart and we all recognized that he worked with much integrity and expected us to do the same. I never forgot him and I think I somewhat took foregranted my yearly holiday card. It was how I was able to keep up with his family, their growth and endeavors. He was a prideful man, never arrogant. I wish Mr. Suter a peaceful journey home. May the Lord keep you and bless your family as they navigate without you. Please know that I thought you were a superb human being. I am thankful of our time spent at Pfizer.

George ,as the saying goes, was truly "A Prince of a Man". He assumed the role of the counselor and the voice of reason for many of us in our extended family for which I am personally grateful. When my our father died suddenly at age 44, he put this arm on my shoulder and took me for a walk offering condolence and encouragement . Ultimately his message was that I had control of my future and the tools to thrive. He was right but I will never forget his message.
Over the years our relationship grew as we played tennis with visits to Spring lake. He was tough and cagey on the court and did not easily give up points. His message was consistent...You have to earn it!! Your memory lives on George!!! Much love and respect Neil Sullivan DMD
