Bob Sutton - A Celebration of Life

As some of you may know, Bob had requested that there be no funeral, but instead a celebration of his life. He also requested his ashes be brought to a final resting place in Fayetteville, Arkansas. While there will be no funeral services, family and friends are invited to celebrate his life on Saturday, June 25th from 12Noon to 4:00pm at Phil Trani’s restaurant in Long Beach, CA, one of Bob’s favorite places to go out to eat.

The trip to California for this event will most likely be prohibitive for many of those who would have liked to attend. The family is asking for Bob’s friends to post photos they may have of Bob from over the years, or perhaps you could make a short video with thoughts on how Bob may have touched your life. Maybe you have a funny anecdote or memory of Bob? These contributions will be put together for a video presentation during the celebration.

Here's a link to Bob’s Facebook page where you can post video, photos or stories…

If you are not on Facebook, but you would like to contribute please send your photos, videos, or written stories to Bob’s sister Peggy Devers via e-mail at

If you plan on flying in for the celebration, flying into Long Beach is always the easiest, rather than LAX.

It will also be important to call Paul Devers, Bob’s nephew, and let him know (RSVP) that you will be attending the event so they can be sure and have enough seating for all. He can be reached at 562-388-9161.

Here’s is the address of the celebration…

Phil Trani’s Restaurant

3490 Long Beach Blvd.

Long Beach, CA 90807

Please direct your questions to Paul regarding this event. The family looks forward to seeing and/or hearing from you.
