William H. “Buddy” Sutton, who served 10 years as chairman of Ouachita Baptist University’s Board of Trustees, died July 2 at age 84.
Sutton, a prominent Little Rock attorney, was a longtime friend and benefactor of Ouachita. University trustees named the W.H. Sutton School of Social Sciences in his honor in 2008. Ouachita President Rex Horne described Sutton at the time as “a rare individual who brings a blessing to whatever he touches.”
