"But 40 years after his death, Suttles's headstone in a cemetery in Bloomfield does not even bear his name.... Suttles is buried in an open, low-lying section of Glendale Cemetery, near the confluence of Bloomfield, Belleville and Nutley. The name of his wife, Lucille, is engraved on the headstone over the plot they share, with only her year of birth and the words In God's Care; the rest remains blank."
