Celebration of Life for Tony Sutton

The Sutton family and Esther Boivin are heartbroken to announce the passing of Tony Wayne Sutton, who passed away three days after his sixty-seventh birthday on Thursday, October 6, 2022.

Tony was best known for his kind spirit and joie de vivre, for his love of travel, meeting up with his college fraternity brothers, tango dancing, hunting deer and spending time with his children and grandchildren. Tony believed everyone should give back to their community. He was involved with many charities and spent a lifetime mentoring aspiring designers. People often picture him wearing a colorful shirt behind the wheel of his beloved Corvette with his beautiful wife, Esther, by his side.

He is survived by his wife, Esther, his father and step-mother, Jerry Sutton and Etta; his three children and their mother Tracey Sutton: Blake Sutton and his wife, Kourtney; Zoë Cotan and her husband, André; and Max Sutton; along with his step-daughter, Alessandra Marcus. Tony also leaves behind a beloved extended family that includes three grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, plus many, many friends who loved him dearly and will miss his kind smile. He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Guy and Ruby Rhodes; his mother, Mary Gayleen Sutton; his son, Alex Rhodes Sutton; and one brother, James Lester Sutton.

His passion was alive in everything he did, and his legacy will live on for eternity.  There are no words to express how deeply Tony’s presence on this earth will be missed.

We hope you will join us in a Celebration of Life on Monday, October 24 from 5 – 7 pm at Illuminate Community Church located at 17800 N Perimeter Dr, Scottsdale, AZ 85255
