Sutton Scott Senska was born on June 18, 2007 to parents Scott and Sarah (Woodruff) Senska in Huron, South Dakota. He attended Holy Trinity Catholic School until 2nd grade and then attended Woonsocket School where he was an 8th grader.

Sutton was a great big brother always looking to keep his siblings in line. He thought he was an adult at a very young age and kept us busy with his plans. He was our dreamer who wanted to try and learn anything new, then move on quickly to the next project. He was always bartering with mom and dad and others for something. He loved the outdoors most, and cruising around on “his farm”, and working on anything motorized. He was also our farm kid that loved animals and wanted to have one of every kind. He made friends everywhere he went and loved talking to everyone of all ages, never speaking bad about anyone. From a young age he was our girl crazy boy and was concerned about smelling good!

His favorite things this last year were cruising with the Ranger while hunting; that and chatting on his phone with his friends and especially his girlfriend. The thing he was most proud of lately was his mullet! His main hobbies were hunting, fishing, archery, listening to music, playing piano and trumpet, band and pep-band, soccer and basketball, 4-H and shooting sports. He was a proud member of the First United Methodist Church in Huron and was currently attending confirmation classes. He always loved going to church and we are comforted knowing he is with our Savior.

He is survived by his loving parents, Scott and Sarah of Woonsocket; siblings Shiloh and Summer; grandparents, Barb and Keith Senska and Charles “Woody” and Lori Woodruff; aunts and uncles, Stacy and Ivy Senska, Laura and Lance Conrad, and Bryan Woodruff; and many special cousins.

He was preceded in death by his great-grandpas and grandmas.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations in establishing a memorial fund for Sanborn County 4-H in Sutton’s name.

In the famous words of Sutton, “It’ll Buff.”

Until we meet again bud, we love you.
