Plan Ahead

von Seutter, Armin Christopher


Armin Christopher von Seutter, 77, of Dallas, Texas, went home to Heaven on April 19, 2021. He was born to Armin von Seutter and Lorene Christopher von Seutter on December 30, 1943 in Memphis, Tennessee. Armin grew up in Starkville, Mississippi, where he graduated from Starkville High School and then from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering.

After using his engineering skills for a while with Georgia Power & Light, Armin took off for an adventure with Campus Crusade for Christ, which provided him with invaluable spiritual training. In 1974, he moved to Dallas, Texas. While looking for a job and working with his landlord, he discovered his true vocational calling. Armin found great joy in painting and remodeling that never waned for as long, as he lived.

At 64, he surprised everyone by finally getting married – to 50-year-old Karen Allen.

As much as Armin loved his wife, family, friends and vocation, his love for God surpassed all else. Studying scriptures, introducing others to Jesus, discipling and mentoring were his passions.

Armin was preceded in death by his parents, Armin and Lorene von Seutter; his sister, Harriet Plezia;  and his brother-in-law, Thomas Smith.

He is survived by his wife, Karen Allen von Seutter; his sister, Sally Smith; his brother-in-law, Anthony Plezia; his nephews, Edward Smith, Christopher Smith, Jonathan Smith, Timothy Foxsmith, Armin Plezia and John Plezia; his niece, Kathi Funderburk; 12 grand-nephews; 12 grand-nieces; 2 great grand-nephews; 4 great grand-nieces; his spiritual children, John & Velvet Lay and spiritual grandchildren,  Michaela Lay, Jesse Lay and Kaira Lay; and a host of friends.

We know that Armin is in Heaven with his savior, Jesus Christ. Our blessed assurance is that one day , we too will join Armin and spend eternity in Heaven with Jesus.

Please leave the family condolences and share memories on this website.

    I am very sorry to hear or Armin’s passing. I knew him back into mid 80s in Dallas Texas. We went to the same church and became good friends through a weekly bible study. Truely a godly man who greatly impacted my life. Will pray that God will comfort them during this time.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
