OBITUARY: Stanley ‘Stan’ Thomas Suratt


Stanley “Stan” Thomas Suratt, age 63, of Pleasant View, Tennessee, died Sunday, September 10, 2023 at his home with his furever friend by his side.

Stan was born in Nashville, Tennessee, on July 9, 1960, to the late William Bluford Suratt and Elizabeth Adeline Wilson Suratt.

Tennessee is the place he chose to call home for most of his life. He was an extremely hard worker and proudly called himself a truck driver until he had to lay down his keys due to his health, but he remembered those days fondly. He enjoyed watching football (GO TITANS!), hunting (when he was able) and all the fast food.

When he entered the room people knew he was there because his laugh was like no other and he would definitely have you laughing. He is loved by many, forgotten by none, and he will live in our hearts forever as he drives the highway in the sky!!! He was a longtime member of Clarksville Highway Church of Christ.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brother, Steven E. Suratt.
