Dr. Dan Suggs is a native of Gastonia, born and raised on a dairy farm off South New Hope Rd. He grew up around animals, so it was natural for him to enter veterinary sciences when he entered college. He received his BS degree from Pfeiffer University in 1971 and went to vet school at Tuskeegee University in Alabama where he earned his DVM in 1975.
He is married to Louisa and is the proud father and stepfather to six children: Trent, Heather, Stacy, Andy, Zach and Caleb and 12 grandchildren.
Pets in the Suggs’ household are numerous as well: 2 dogs and Louisa's chickens. Stragglers come through periodically, as they know they will be loved and well cared for.
Dr. Suggs is a jack-of-all trades and that comes in very handy on all the building mission trips he goes on. He has either been on the roof, framing buildings or digging latrines in Cambodia, South Africa, Guatemala, Jamaica, Costa Rica and Haiti to name a few. He is very active at Myers Memorial United Methodist. Then, when it is time to rest, he loves his recliner to watch those Clemson Tigers!
