It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our beloved husband and father, Lou Suter, of Lancaster, PA, on Friday, May 28, 2021. Born in Lancaster, he was the son of the late Roy E. and Helen Hatfield Suter.
Lou has been on a journey for the past 21 months, after being diagnosed with Leukemia, AML. In that time, he battled bravely, with great courage, conviction and a great sense of humor.
Lou was a proud graduate of J.P. McCaskey High School, class of 71’, and Augusta Military Academy, Fort Defiance, Virginia. He was employed for 38 years by Armstrong World Industries, at the Distribution Center.
Lou was the consummate family man; family was the most important aspect in his life. Always involved, supporting and helping his children in whatever endeavor they chose to pursue. He was the strong force who always kept the family moving forward. A man of strong values, and a sense and desire to help others. He will be missed by many.
He is survived by his wife Vicky, of more than 45 years. He was the proud father to Matthew (Lourdes), of Strasburg and Ashley Suter Ulmer (Nathan), of Bel Air, MD, a brother, Timothy Suter of Tampa, FL, his brother-in-law, Scott Kirchoff of Palm Coast, FL, and his dear cousin, Edward Hatfield of Millersville, who he loved as a brother. He was Poppy to Keira, Gabriel, Michael, Alondra, and Anthony.
