Elk River Boxing Club Seeks Donated Weight Equipment to Give Local Youth Safe, Drug-Free Place

 

By: Stacy Nelson | Posted Oct. 13, 2018

Elk River Boxing Club is located at 5522 Elk River Road, in Elkview, West Virginia. They currently offer kickboxing, karate and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu MMA classes for all ages and skill levels; however, according to Coach Rob Fletcher, they are in need of donated weight equipment. They are starting construction on a new weight room in order to expand on the services they are offering which also provides a positive outlet for youth in the community.

According to Fletcher, they currently have 10-15 school age members, many of which ride the bus to the gym after school each day. “A majority of the kids we work with are on our scholarship program. They usually arrive around 4:30 PM and the parents pick them up between 6:00 PM and 6:30 PM. We start each day with warm-up exercises and fitness training, then depending on which day it is, we have class in either boxing, Kick Boxing or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.”  Fletcher wants to provide a safe, positive, drug-free environment for more kids, who may not be interested in combat sports.  Fletcher continued, “I started working with the kids from the Elk River area in 2012 that would come to my gym in Charleston. Some I would pick up and take home and some caught the KRT to there. I could see a lot of these kids were in a place in their lives where they could choose two paths. My main objective has been to help the area kids, and if we can change a path some of these kids are on before it’s too late, then everything we do here is worth it.”

If anyone is interested in helping Elk River Boxing Club with their mission or has weight equipment they would like to donate, contact Rob Fletcher at (681) 313-6001. Check them out on Facebook.

Obituary-Wallace Franklin “Jack” Suttle

Posted: Oct. 13, 2018 | Source: Hafer Funeral Home

Wallace Franklin (Jack) Suttle, loving husband, caring father and grandfather, respected businessman and a minister of the gospel went home to be with the Lord on October 11, 2018, at CAMC Memorial Division after losing his battle against pancreatic cancer. Jack was born October 22, 1943, in Rupert, WV. He was preceded in death by his parents Paris Franklin and Eugenia Alice Suttle and sister Barbara Ely.

Jack’s entrepreneurial spirit began at the age of 10 as a paper carrier in Rainelle, WV and had the rights to carry every route in town by the time he was 14. After graduation from Rainelle High School, he moved to Charleston School of Commerce to study accounting and later graduated from Morris Harvey College (University of Charleston) with an accounting degree. He then founded Suttle & Stalnaker, PLLC with his business partner, David Stalnaker and served many years as the managing partner of the firm. During his 40-year accounting career, he was a visionary and focused on improving his profession. He was a past President of the West Virginia Society of CPAs and a former board member of the West Virginia Healthcare Financial Management Association.

After heart conditions forced his early retirement from the firm in 2004, he volunteered as the accounting teacher at Elk Valley Christian School and became the school’s principal from 2013-2018. He dearly loved his students and cared for them as his own children.

Jack lived to serve Christ and others. In 1970, he began singing with the Servants Quartet and in 1977 he began singing with his family, the Suttles, and did so until 2005. He was passionate about sharing God’s love through song and became an ordained minister in 1978 and began holding evangelistic meetings throughout the eastern United States and various missionary trips to India. Jack also served Christ as a Deacon, School Board Member and Sunday School Teacher at his home church, Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church.

He is survived by his wife, Nancy Jo Suttle; his brother, Bill (Delane); two children: Lynette Lucas (Tony) and Wallace F. (Wally) Suttle, II (Spring) and four grandchildren: Zachary Lucas (Kayla), Parker Lucas (Kaley), Wallace F. (Trey) Suttle and Meredith Suttle. He is also survived by two great-granddaughters and another to be born soon.

The family would like to thank his great medical team at CAMC and Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. They would especially like to thank his cardiologist, Dr. Stanton for keeping him “ticking” all of these years and his oncology team Dr. Sissoko, Dr. Elmore, Dr. Weiss, Dr. Shah and the nurses on the MICU floor (Robin, Kenny and Justin) for their tremendous care.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to Elk Valley Christian School for construction of awnings over the steps of the Jack Suttle Elementary Building.

Jack was a giver his whole life, and his final act of gratitude came when he donated his body to the West Virginia University School of Medicine to assist doctors in finding a cure for pancreatic cancer. Cancer stripped him of his goal to donate his organs, but he felt he could have a greater impact on the world if he gave his whole body.

2 Timothy 4:7-8, I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness . . .

A visitation will be held on Monday, October 15, from 4 to 8 p.m. at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, Elkview, WV. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, October 16 at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, at 7 p.m., with Rev. Lee Swor and Rev. Regan Jett officiating.

Online condolences may be sent to www.haferfuneralhome.net.

Arrangements are in the care of Hafer Funeral Home, 50 North Pinch Road, Elkview.

To send flowers to the family of Wallace Franklin “Jack” Suttle, please visit Hafer’s Heartfelt Sympathies Store.

On October 13-14th, 2018, Clendenin Homecoming Festival Teen Queen-Lauren Gorman will be competing in the Miss West Virginia Teen USA competition held at the Creative Arts Center Lyell B Clay Theatre at West Virginia University. Lauren has placed in the Top 5 for the last two years at this pageant and was third runner-up last year.  According to pageant director, Heather Rouch, “This year Lauren is in a great position to take the crown.  If she does, she would then go on to represent at the Miss Teen USA pageant.”

Lauren is a scholar athlete and currently attends Roane County High School where she is a senior.  She is actively involved in Varsity Volleyball and will also be leaving next week to prepare for New York Fashion Week where she is modeling for several designers.

Rouch indicated that sponsors are required for the competition.

On Friday Elk River native Dean Jeffries (R) was sworn in as the newest member of the West Virginia House of Delegates. Jeffries will serve the people of the 40th District which covers the Elk River Valley area in Kanawha County replacing Tim Armstead’s vacancy upon his recent appointment to the WV Supreme Court.

Surrounded by close family and friends, Jeffries was sworn in by Judge Dan Greear as other key members of the House of Delegates were in attendance. The new Speaker of the House, Roger Hanshaw welcomed Jeffries by appointing him to the Joint Committee on Flooding effective immediately.



Dean Jeffries First Committee Assignment Joint Committee on Flooding 9 7 2018 (Text)

Jeffries said,  “It was a great honor and blessing to have my family with me while I was sworn in by Judge Greear this morning to the WV House of Delegates. The response from the Elk River Community since being appointed has been overwhelmingly incredible. I love our people and our community. They were first and foremost in my heart as I took the oath today. The swearing-in ceremony today was for the Elk River Area. Those that were involved from the Legislature are well aware of my passion to serve the people of this District. I was welcomed with an antique photograph of the town of Clendenin and an appointment by the Speaker of the House to the Joint Committee on Flooding. Speaker Hanshaw understands my commitment to the revitalization of the Elk River Community. It was a huge honor to have Speaker Hanshaw’s confidence in me to place me on the Joint Committee for Flooding. I am excited and ready to serve the 40th District and the Great State of West Virginia. Before leaving my new office at the Capitol I placed a river rock from Queen Shoals in my desk drawer. I will never forget why I am there or who I am there to serve. God bless the Elk River Area and the Wonderful State of West Virginia!!”

Jeffries will face Melissa Riggs Huffman (D) in the general election on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
