Talan Thomas Sustad

June 30, 2008 — January 2, 2016

Talan Thomas Sustad, 7, of Willet, NY, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, January 2, 2016, at SUNY Upstate Medical Center, Syracuse, NY.

Talan, affectionally known as “Buzzy," "Mini-Messi," "Neymar, Jr. Jr.," "Indian,” and “Buddy” was born in Johnson City, NY on June 30, 2008, the son of T.J. and Lisa (Rutan) Sustad.  He attended second grade at Cincinnatus Central School where he loved to play soccer.  In fact, it was his dream to become a world-renown professional soccer player.  Like most adorable little boys, he was a hero to many and most definitely a “ladies man.”  He enjoyed attending basketball games with his dad, as well as camping, motocross, and his Play Station.  Along with his family, he enjoyed spending time with his best friend and “twin” cousin, Koda, and his dogs Kane and Axl.

He is survived by his parents, Lisa and Thomas Sustad, Jr. of Willet; and his sisters, Kyla and Kendall Sustad.  He also leaves behind his maternal grandparents, Larry and Darla Rutan of Willet; his paternal grandparents, Emma Goslee of Felton, DE, and Thomas, Sr. and Louella Sustad of New Milford, CT; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

He was predeceased by a cousin, Jessica Mae Rice, in 1994.

Funeral services for Talan will be held at the Willet Fire Station, Willet, NY, on Wednesday, January 6, 2016, at 1:00 p.m. with Fred M.S. Downs officiating.  Burial will be in Willet Cemetery.  The family will be present to receive friends at the fire station on Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. until the start of the service at 1:00 p.m.  Expressions of sympathy in memory of Talan may be made to the family to help offset expenses and may be sent to Carrie Temple, 269 Penelope Road, Willet, NY 13863.
