Anyone can love the mountains, but it takes a soul to love the pairie

Harold Sukut

Harold Sukut, beloved father, grandfather, and great-grandfather left this world on July 20, 2023, at the age of 96. He will be sadly missed and will always hold a place in our hearts. He was the one who guided the family and the one who was the strength that held the family together.

Harold was born to John and Rebecca (Eslinger) Sukut on October 15, 1926, in Watkins, MT. He was one of eleven children. He helped the family on their farm for most of his earlier years. He joined the Army when he was able and proudly served at the end of World War II and in Korea. Following the service, he and his twin brother, Ervin, partnered together in farming and ranching near Brockway, MT.

Harold married Esther Kasten in 1954 and raised three sons, Brian (Hope) Sukut, Kevin (Shannon) Sukut, Greg Sukut; two daughters, Pamela Green and Sheila (Joel) Brueland; ten grandchildren; and eleven great-grandchildren. Everything that Harold and Esther did was for the kids.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Esther; son, Blaine; his parents; his brothers, Albert, Ervin, John, Monte, Bill, and Herb; and sisters, Anna, Clara, Ameila, and Mary.

A graveside service will take place on Tuesday, July 25, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. at the Riverview Cemetery in Circle, MT.
