Ed was our trusted mechanic for  over 40 years and showed such kindness to my husband and me through all those years. I am so sorry for your loss-my sympathy and prayers to his family.

Jenny, Christy, Paula, sons-in-law and grandchildren of Edward Sutula,
I am the rector of the Russian Orthodox Church of the Nativity. I knew your beloved father as a neighbor and as my mechanic. I started using him as my mechanic when one of my colleagues at Mercyhurst College (I also taught there for 25 years) recommended using your father's shop because as he told me: "Not only is Ed an excellent mechanic, but he is a very classy man whose shop is immaculate, and who pipes in classical music. Where else could you service your car finding such a classy place and classy mechanic?" . My colleague perfectly described your father (and mother). As you well know, they were wonderful people. Please accept my deepest condolences and also surprise. I spoke with your father only two weeks ago and he sounded fine, so I am assuming that his repose was sudden, and perhaps unexpected. His passing is a loss to all who knew him. May God grant him eternal rest with the saints!
Fr. Steven Pimen Simon

Ed took care of my cars for over three decades but he did more than that. He was always a friend to share my life events. He was there for me through celebrations and tragedies. We always had something to talk about from politics to Disney.

I shall miss him dearly.

Hard to believe Ed is gone... that I will never hear "Godbye" on the phone from him.  We were privileged to have him for more than a 3 decade as our best car doctor. It was a joy talking to him and seeking his advices.

With heartfelt sympathy,

Mr. Sutula and I always addressed one another as "Mr.". This was a sign of respect. I would enter the Garage and hear a hardy Mr. McKinstry. I will never hear that again. I feel so sad.  As a businessman I trusted Mr. Sutula 100%! In this he was unique. We became friends, talked of many things. There is a lesson here. This fine man was always cheerful, positive in outlook. I believe the good things one does, their honesty, go out into the world and influence others. Does this influence  really ever end? Mr. Sutula was one of the best men I have ever known. I will miss him greatly.

My grandparents and then me and my family lived on Ash St. by the garage. The first time he fixed your car was the last time anyone else would touch it. Many felt the same. Could always trust his 'diagnosis ' to be spot on. He took such good care of my Honda-he bought it! Mr.and Mrs. Sutula were highly respected and will be missed. I wish I would have stopped at Sutula's Garage that one day a few years ago. Always think there's going to be another chance. Condolences to the family.
