Buffalo News Obituary Version
Jan. 26, 1953 - Sept. 9, 2018

Timothy H. Sutton shared his love of popular music with fellow devotees as co-owner of a mobile sound company and then as a disc jockey at several Buffalo bars.

Recently, near the end of his nearly five-year battle with colon cancer, many friends he made as a DJ and later a bartender at those same venues in the '70s and '80s - starting at Casey’s Nickelodeon on Elmwood Avenue - gathered to reminisce with him during what they dubbed the "Summer of Tim."

Mr. Sutton died Sept. 9 in his Williamsville home. He was 65.

Born in Buffalo, he developed a taste for art at Campus School and Jamestown Community College, while also working at Thomas Mileham Antiques, where he learned to refinish and repair valuable antiques and furniture.

An expert on many musical genres, he put that knowledge to use as co-owner of Odyssey Sound, spinning records at weddings and parties, before starting his long stretch of DJ gigs on the Buffalo bar and club scene.

Mr. Sutton made a final career change in 1989, when he started in automotive sales at his brother-in-law’s dealership, Jim Murphy Pontiac and GMC Truck.

An enthusiastic Bills and Sabres fan, he, like his late mother, Carol, was a devoted Buffalo News reader and Sunday crossword puzzler.

Surviving are his wife of 30 years, the former Karen Murphy; a sister, Sherill; and a brother, Todd.

A Mass of Christian Burial was offered Sept. 13 in St. Michael’s Catholic Church.
