Městská část Praha 10 nechala pojmenovat dosud bezejmenný park pod strašnickým krematoriem po Františku Suchém, bývalém řediteli krematoria. Tuto dosud málo známou osobnost českých dějin vybral úřad ve spolupráci s dokumentaristy z obecně prospěšné společnosti Post Bellum. Park je umístěn ve Strašnicích mezi ulicemi Nad Olšinami, Nad Primaskou a Za Strašnickou vozovnou.
