 Beverly Sustare,

75, Matthews Lawyer,



Funeral services for Beverly Townsend Sustare*, 75, who had lived for the past three years with a heart "pacemaker", will be hled at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow at Matthews Baptist Church.

A graveside service will be held at 3:30p.m. Wednesday at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Norfolk, Va.

Mr. Sustare died yesterday of a liver ailment.

The Matthews lawyer underwent one of the country's first succesful heart operations of its type in 1962.

A battery-transistor, embedded in the wallof hisstomach, sent 70 electrical impulses a minute to two tiny electrodes implanted in the muscles of his heart and kept his heart beating. He was suffering for a heart blockade.

A defect was present in the nerve system that provides the electrical energy, the impulses to keep the heart beating, so surgeons introduced the miniature machine, the "pacemaker", that monitored his heart beat and provided the electrical stimulation that was missing.

The "pacemaker" was a miniature model for a larger one that worked ourside the body. The small battery ordinarily is attached to wires onthe outside of the body, and can be carried around ina pocket.

The local surgeons, however, decided that the risk of wires becoming mixed up would be considerably reduced by placing the battery inside the body.

Mr. Sustare was attached to the larger machine for nearly a month before surgery. When asked about the feeling the shock gave, he said.

"It was just like a heavy blow on the heart-like being hit with a sledge hammer. It kept up until my heart stated back to work."

On March19 1962, six weeks after the "pacemaker" was installed, Mr. Sustare left Mercy Hospital with this comment: "It feels mighty good to walk out. "

Mr. Sustare was born March 3, 1890, in Mecklenburg County, son of the late B. A. and Amanda Ferguson Sustare. He was a graduated from Wake Forest College and Recieved his LLD degree in 1913.

He was manager of the American Agricultural Chemical Co. and was an automobile dealer in Norfolk, Virginia, Suffolk, Va. and --(missing text from the xerox copy, )

Mr. Sustare practiced law in Matthews.

Mr. Sustare is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Robert W. Sutton of Norfolk, Va., three sons, Beverly A. Sustare and, George A. Sustare of Newport News, Va.;and John W. Sustare of Nashville, N.C. and five sisters, Mrs. W.O. Benton, Mrs T.L. Garland, Mrs Claude Neal, Mrs. Reid Newell and Miss Guss Sustare,all of Matthews .

A matchbook cover advertising _"B.T. Sustare-Sales Leader- Nansemond Motors, 428 East Pinner Street, Suffolk, Virginia, Phone 5733." This is where B. T. Sustare worked selling FORD automobiles; while he held this job he rented 2 acres of land across the street from the auto dealership in order to grow his vegetable garden in that earth. Granddaddy Sustare's green thumb grew corn, peas, beans, tomatoes, squash and pumpkins. His body was in the salesroom, but at lunch, before work and after work, he was in the garden, and that was where his heart was. I think my own love and gardening and my green thumb are inherited from my sweet Grandad Sustare.CLS


Beverly T. Sustare was manager of the American Agricultural Chemical Co. He had vast knowledge of the growth of plants.

Here is a sample of my Green Thumb Grandpa Sustare, in the form of a letter written to his daughter, Chester Sustare Sutton.

Quoted: " Wednesday,

Dear Chester,

You surely have been having fun - living room ceiling coming down, pilling hot coffee and then your thumb acting up. That should take care of your troubles for a whilte..

I am glad the fig tree stood the moving so well and that the magnolia will pull through. I hope the fig tree that I put out will at least spout out from the roots, but it is about time for sprouts to show if they are ever coming out. it is a Texas everbearing, a large pretty fig.

My tomatoes are really growing. A lot of big green ones on the early planted row - but none ripe. The should begin to riopenin about two weeks.

I am anxious for you to come for a visit - Carol and Bobby too if they can come. But I don't want you to drive until your thumb is well enough for safe driving. Then the 4th of July wek end would be bad traffic wise unless you can come on Thursday ahead of the 4th week end nuts. Maybe you can do that and stay until at least Tuesday before starting back. I would like for you to stay mucn longer if you can. Let me know when -

I still have your wash pot and will take it (to ) you when I go again unless you can carry it abck when you come. I want to run over to Nashville before Nancy leaves, but I can go over there sometime in the middle of the week.
Take good care of yourself and say Hello! to all the family - and Micky -for me. I will be looking for you soon -

Love, Pappy

Get your Bible and read Proverbs -Chapter 26, Verse 17."


 Beverly Townsend Sustare, master gardener and growerBeverly Townsend Sustare standing in a garden., date: circa 1950?

This looks like a tobacco field to me. I don't think that Grand dad Sustare grew tobacco; he mainly grew vegetables, grew corn, peas, beans, tomatoes of all sorts , including heritage varieties of tomatoes, squash and pumpkins.

Grandaddy Sustare included a little side note include in the letter to the left: on a commercial stationary pad:




IN the Birthplace of American Mutual Insurance"

 Mrs. G. C. Lee of Hopkins County, Texas,
 put a strip of white cloth about 10 inches
 wide and 1 1/2 yards long across the top of
 each tree. And she says that some people put
 netting, such as cheese closth
 ( or tabacco bed cloth) over the trees."
