Matthew Shawn Sauters
May 28, 1980 - June 3, 2021
Mathew Shawn Sauters was born on May 28, 1980 to Bill and Becky (Nesbit) Sauters Sr. He grew up and went to school in Toutle Lake, where he enjoyed hunting and fishing with his dad, brother and friend. If his tires weren't crunching gravel on a logging road, he wasn't happy! After his accident in 2005, he came to live with his mom and step-dad until the time of his death. His stepfather spent a lot of his time helping out Matt's caregivers, while his mom slept with one eye open.
He is survived by his mom Becky and step-dad Curtis (Bud) Riley, dad Bill and step-mom Shiela, brother Bill Jr. (Denise), niece Syndey, nephew Griffin, step-sisters Kim (Max) Preston, Christine Green, and Greg (Toit) Riley, also several more nieces and nephews.
He is proceeded in death by his grandpa and grandma Sauters, grandpa Nesbit, and step-grandpa Reynolds.
He was very fond of his cousins, aunts, and uncles growing up, adding more through his parents re-marring.
His grandmother Jean Nesbit, Step-grandmother Cathy Reynolds.
A big thanks to former caregivers Heidi Jordan Johnson, Donna Wirkkala, Mindy Hawley, Mary Palmer, and Pat Cramer who took care of Matt until the end.
