April 28, 1959 ~ December 28, 2009
Sutton, William Gregory
A 50 year resident of the South Bay, our beloved Greg passed away on December 28th in Hermosa Beach, California. Greg graduated from Hawthorne High School in 1977 and was employed by Hughes Aircraft and Jol Designs of Hermosa Beach. Greg's many passions included beach volleyball, off-road racing, collecting guitars, writing & playing music, creative writing, astronomy, concern for all animals and USC Trojan Football. Greg enjoyed travel to the family cabin in Running Springs, trips to the Baja desert, and frequent bike cruises down the strand to the local beach volleyball courts. Greg is survived by his parents, Bill & LaVon Sutton, brother Jeff (Laurie), nephew Graham Sutton of Redondo Beach, and the Fred Martin family and many relatives and close friends near and far. A special thanks to the team of doctors that assisted Greg for many years, Dr. Chong U. Kim, Dr. David O. Kim, and Dr. Sunny Y. Melendez. An informal/casual gathering of friends and family in celebration of Greg's life will be held on Sunday, January 10th between 3 & 5 pm at Rice Mortuary, 5310 Torrance Blvd, Torrance, CA 90503. In Lieu of flowers the family suggests a donation to your preferred charity. Please visit www.LAfuneral.com to share memories and view a future video tribute to Greg. Much of Greg's inspiration came from music, and his passing can best be summed up in the words of one of his many favorite bands: "If I leave here tomorrow would you still remember me? For I must be traveling on, now. Cause there's too many places I've got to see". We love you Greg!
