Wayne G. Sutton, LS 3863It is with the utmost sadness that I have to pass on that Wayne G. Sutton, LS 3863, my friend and mentor, after a long and brave struggle, passed on Monday morning (August 25th) at Central Valley Specialty Hospital in Modesto. He was surrounded by his family. He leaves a huge void in our surveying community. His knowledge and leadership will missed by all.
