February 11, 1938 - May 2, 2021
Claude Henry Suggs, Jr., 83, of Pennsauken, NJ, passed away on May 2, 2021 after a brief illness in Camden, NJ. He was born on February 11, 1938 to the late Claude and Almeta (Joyner) Suggs in Seven Springs, NC. Claude moved to Elizabeth, NJ with his brothers John and Melvin Suggs. Later moving to Atlantic City, where he met and married the late Jacqueline Suggs and from their union came three beautiful children. From his farming roots in North Carolina to selling plants as a street vendor in Philadelphia, it was only natural for Claude and Jackie to open Jerry's Flowers and Gifts, named after their first born son and located on Westfield Avenue in Pennsauken. After Jackie passed and the business was sold, Claude continued the tradition of flowers, plants, and farming and opened his own landscaping business, Claude's Garden Scapes. He was always on the move and never slowed down, not even when he became sick. Claude enjoyed playing the guitar and singing. Most of all, he adored spending time with his family and grandchildren. He will truly be missed. Claude is predeceased by his wife, Jacqueline Suggs; his parents, Claude and Almeta Suggs; siblings, John Walter Suggs and Melvin Earl Suggs. Claude leaves behind to cherish his memories, his children, Bunny Lyons (Kevin), Claude Jeremiah Suggs and Ryan Eric Suggs (Sarah); his grandchildren, Kae Lani Palmisano (Jonathan), Lucas Suggs, Lando Suggs; siblings, Goldie Tillman, Minnie P. Freeman, Pastor Wilbert Suggs, Mae Thelma Camacho, Rufus Suggs (Louise); Evangelist Elvin Williamson, Minister Olivia Haggins (Bishop Clarence Haggins), Deacon Arnold Lee, Lillian Suggs, Minister Della Jones (Cleveland), Evangelist Ella Suggs, Deacon Calvin Suggs, and Willie Suggs; and many loving nieces, nephews, and friends.
