George H. SUTTLE, a pioneer of Routt county, having located a homestead adjoining town in 1888, died suddenly Sunday evening at the home of his son, Arthur SUTTLES, on Soda creek. Deceased returned about two weeks ago after spending the winter in Florida. He caught cold coming over the range and had been indisposed for several days. Dr. Crulkshank, who was in attendance, gives the cause of death as acute bronchitis, but no serious results were anticipated until a few hours before death came.

George H. SUTTLE was born September 29, 1853, and with his wife and family came to Steamboat Springs in 1888 where he has since resided almost continuously. Mrs. SUTTLE died January 10, 1910. The surviving children are Arthur SUTTLE of Steamboat Springs, Mrs. Mary WATERS of Plummer, Idaho; Mrs. Nellie GROSS of Seattle, Washington, and Mrs. May SCHAFFER of Denver.

George H. SUTTLE was a square and a just man; a man of strong convictions and rigid principles, a good father and husband and a good neighbor. The funeral is being held at the Methodist church today.
