Matthew Charles Martin

August 21, 1982 ~ March 18, 2020 (age 37)


Martin, Matthew Charles, of Tipp City, Ohio  loving husband, father, son, brother, and uncle; passed away suddenly and tragically on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 at the age of 37.  Matt was born August 21, 1982 in Dayton Ohio to Charles O. Martin, Dayton  and Mary Lou Koenig, Tipp City.  A 2001 graduate of Tippecanoe High School.  Matt was a Field Supervisor for Exhibit Concepts, Vandalia, a carpenter and a handy man. Matt is preceded in death by his grandparents William and Lucille Koenig and Joseph and Mary Martin.  The number of loved ones Matt leaves behind are nearly uncountable.  Surviving Matt are his parents; his wife Jayme (Stutz) Martin, son Matthew J and daughter Charlotte Martin both at home. Sister Jessica (Christopher) Cyran, Cincinnati. Sister-in-laws Sierra (Aadam) Adkins, Jordan (Brent) Stutz, Paige Stutz all of Tipp City.  Brother-in-laws Jaydon Stutz, Franklin, Ohio, Brandon Clark, and Donnivan Clark, both of Tipp City.   Nieces and nephews Lucca, Gianna, Apollo, and Giovanni Adkins, Vinncent English, Jacob and Grayson Cyran, and Nora and Jacqueline Stutz.  Matt did not know a stranger.  His chocolate chip smile infected everyone, and inspired an entire room to light up.  He could make anyone laugh with one of his jokes or insanely funny pranks.  His love for dogs, M&M’s, and milk will always be remembered and those traits have been passed down to his children.  He had a heart of gold, helping anyone he came across. He could fix anything from a simple door jamb to taking a part a car engine and putting it back together.  Anything or anyone that needed something knew to call Matt to help.  His talents were endless.  He designed and built beautiful furniture, creative toys and decorations.  Matt loved to make people happy, which was easily done just by being present.  He will be missed Always and Forever.
