Jimper Sutton

It is with a very heavy heart I have to report the death of my great friend and one of “Rye’s Own’s” finest contributors.

Jimper in Recent Years
Jimper Sutton

Jimper has been writing for the magazine almost from the very start in 1965. His knowledge of country matters and fearless contributions on almost any topic have made him one of the most popular Rye Characters over many, many years.

Jimper had so many adventures during his lifetime and he recorded every one of them in the pages of his diary, which he filled every night before going to sleep.

He was a font of knowledge on country matters and so many other subjects.


There will be a full tribute to this great Rye personality in the August “Rye’s Own”
