Louis Emmett Sudeth, age 76, passed away Monday, August 4, 2014, after a long illness with amyloidosis cancer. He was born August 26, 1937 in Iron Mountain, MI to Hillary and Anna (Walters) Sudeth.

He is survived by his loving wife, Unice Annette (Sapp) Sudeth of 55 years, married October 31, 1958 in Pensacola, FL; sons, Steven Louis Sudeth, Michael Todd Sudeth (Jennifer); daughter, Pamela Ann Sudeth; Louis's brother, Roger Sudeth; many nieces, nephews and cousins.

He is preceded in death by his parents; sister, Leroca Sudeth; grandparents, Louis and Rosa Walters; grandparents, Emmet and Eva Sudeth. He was raised by his grandparents, Walter's, on their farm in Pembine, WI after his parents passed away; there they taught him the values of life. Louis was a graduate of Pembine H.S. He proudly served in the U.S. Navy until he was discharged in 1959. After that, Louis was employed with GM Powertrain, Alexis Road, for 32 years retiring in 1992. He loved working on cars and was known as "Louie Supertune". He received a Bachelor of Arts from Davis Junior College. He also worked part time for Vin Devers Autohaus in Sylvania, OH.

He loved sports including bowling, racing stock cars with son, Mike who won many races at Oakshade. The thing he loved most was the Lord Jesus Christ who forgave him of his sins and gave him eternal life.

Louis received a kidney transplant April 20, 2010 thanks to a special lady, Sherry Reischel of West Bend, WI which gave him four more years of life. He was always witnessing to someone about the Lord. In all he faced it was God who would get him through the valley. His favorite verse was II Timothy 1:7. "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love; and of a sound mind."

Special thanks for all your prayers, visits, and cards. Thanks to all the doctors and staff at UTMC and Ebeid Hospice in Sylvania, OH for all their compassionate care. A special thanks to the congregation of Hope Baptist Church where they have been members the past 14 years.
