Matthew Sean Deeringer left this earth suddenly April 7, 2018, to return to our Heavenly Father. He was 56 years old. Matthew was born Sept. 9, 1961 in Pocatello, Idaho, to James Michael Deeringer and Patricia Jean Rhiney. Matthew was the oldest of three children. After living in San Jose, Calif., for a few years, they moved to Coos Bay in 1971 when Matthew was 10 years old. Matthew graduated from Marshfield High School in 1979 and shortly thereafter married his high school sweetheart, Marilyn Kaye Nelson in August 1979. Together they raised four children. Matthew and Marilyn were sealed for time and all eternity Nov. 10, 1984 in the Bern, Switzerland LDS temple.
Matthew served in the U.S. Army and got to travel all over the world while serving his country. After his military service he became a long-haul truck driver. Matthew was a hard worker who always put forth his best effort in everything he did. He put his family first always. He instilled his work ethic and love of family in all of his children. There was never any doubt about his love and devotion to his wife and children. Matthew loved motorcycles, music, good food, his friends and family, and he loved his Heavenly Father.
Matthew had the biggest heart and was always making us laugh with his jovial personality. We will miss him so much, but we know we will see him again someday.
Matthew was preceded in death by his father, Mike Deeringer.
