Tye was born October 7, 1979 to MarrSue (Harris) Martin and Willian L Sutor in Richland Washington at 7:22 pm. Tye attended several schools while growing up and graduated from Thurston High School in Springfield Oregon which he considered his hometown. After graduation he enlisted into the Army where he proudly served our county until 2005. He was a wounded warrior with PTSD. He moved to Phoenix Arizona to attend a trade school and join his mother who had just recently moved to Phoenix. He later received his bachelor’s degree in business management from the University of Phoenix. As he was trying to find a career that suited him with his military background, he found a career with DOC as a correctional office at Lewis Prison in Buckeye.He found the comradery of brotherhood and sisterhood he had experience in his new career as correctional officer at Lewis Prison in Buckeye.
He was a quiet, kindhearted man that was very loyal to everyone who was important to him. He had a great laugh oftentimes surprising others with his quirky sense of humor. He gave the biggest bear hugs that matched his 6-foot 3in size. He enjoyed his 2 pool leagues that he had been on for years and the caption of one. He enjoyed the Oakland Raiders and the Oregon Ducks football team. He enjoyed spending time with those close to him and the occasional night on the town. He enjoyed a variety of foods and could eat more than his fair share. He enjoyed spending time with his mom and dogs at the family home where he was a great help around the house. Tye had a great fashion sense and every May he would find the perfect dress, jewelry and shoes for his mom to wear to San Diego for his brothers Chip’s Pre-Mother’s Day luncheon.
He is survived by his loving Mom, MarrSue Martin, brothers Chip Messenger and Jeremy Martin, half brother and sister Will and Amber Sutor, Father William Sutor. Preceded in death: Stepfather Wayne Martin, Grandma & Grandpa Little, Uncle Scott Harris, Grandpa Sutor

MarrSue and chip I’m am so sorry for your loss as a mother and brother! I didn’t know Tye but I grew up with his mom and I’m sure he was a lovingly , wonderful person as his mom is! It is so shocking to lose a child especially suddenly! We as mothers are suppose to go before our children but life will take us to unknown grief when we least expect it! I know the grief of the loss of a child. What I know is it will never go away but life will go on in time. It never gets easier just different without him. He will be forever a part of our heart that aches To see, talk and hold him. Love you my friend and family! Cathy

We didn't know each other till later in life and I'm sad to know that I didn't get to know you as a child. You found me when I was in a dark place and even though we were practically complete strangers you gave all the support you could and always made sure I knew I was a part of your family when many others in my life had cast me out. I can never put into words my gratitude for your kindness. Rest well beloved cousin. You will be sorely missed.

I am still in shock that you have graduated from this life, as I just saw you a little over a week ago. You were always a team player and had everybody's back. It is rare to find people to confide in and we shared plenty of stories on the job over the years. With so much life ahead of you, the Lord seems to have needed you more than the rest of us. For that, Heaven gained a saint and the rest of us must continue your watch. We can take it from here Big Red. Until Valhalla! RIP
