Matt is also survived by his siblings Josh, John II (LJ), Cody, Connor, Aundrea, Nicole, and Tammii. Matt is also survived by his grandmother Carol Cramer and grandmother Edith Toothman. Matt was blessed with many aunts and uncles, cousins, in-laws, nieces and nephews whom will greatly miss his presence. Matt was preceded in death by many family members with whom he will now rejoice.
Matt enjoyed his time working in irrigation and lawn care services as he greatly enjoyed being outdoors. Prior to this, Matt was employed by Fastenal where he met his fiancé Ashley and they were set to be married on September 19th, 2020. Matt greatly enjoyed spending time with his family including watching his brother Josh, whom he spent much of his life looking up to, become a father to Matt's niece. In the recent years, Matt began growing a relationship with his brother, LJ, and became close with LJ’s wife and their children. Matt valued many activities including riding his motorcycle, working on cars and his bike, and bowling in a league with Ashley. Matt and Ashley spent many weekends at the bowling alley and met wonderful people. Additionally, Matt greatly enjoyed days where he did not have a plan and truly set an example of living in the moment. Those who came in contact with Matt will all agree he was a simple man who was more likely than not to have a smile on his face and the capability to make a stranger laugh.
