Suttor, Reginald Sydney (1876–1928)

Mr. Reginald Sydney Suttor, passenger manager of the Orient S.N. Co. Ltd., at Sydney, and one of the most popular figures in shipping circles, died at St. Luke's Hospital on Wednesday night. For several years he had suffered ill-health, and he had been in hospital for a week.

Mr. Suttor, who was 52 years of age, was the fourth son of the late Sir Francis and Lady Suttor. He was born at Bathurst, and at an early age proceeded to England, where he was educated at King's School, Canterbury. On returning to Australia at the age of 16 years, he joined the staff of the Orient Company, commencing as a clerk in the freight department. Later, he went to the office of the company at Perth as a passenger clerk. In 1910 he returned to Sydney, and was appointed passenger manager, remaining in that position until his death. For a time Mr. Suttor took an active interest in golf, and cricket.

Mr. Suttor is survived by Mrs. Suttor, who is a daughter of the late Mr. A. S. Mayne, of Vaucluse, one son, Reginald, and one daughter, Betty.

The interment will take place at 11 o'clock this morning in the South Head Cemetery.
