Matt D. Hoese

Matt D. Hoese, age 58, of Deland, Florida formerly of Mayer, MN passed away Saturday, June 24, 2017 in Florida.

Memorial Service Saturday July 1, 2017 at 2 p.m. at the Johnson Funeral Home in Waconia with Rev. Lucas Woodford officiating; gathering of family and friends from 12 noon until the time of service; interment Zion Lutheran Cemetery in Mayer.
Matt was born on February 2, 1959 in Watertown, MN the son of Donald and Karen (Emich) Hoese.

Matt attended school in Watertown, MN and graduated in 1977. Being a Jack-of-All trades, he mastered skills in many different fields, finally creating his own welding business which eventually relocated him to Florida. Throughout the years of his life, Matt made many friendships. Whether it be discussing job plans with clients or recapping the latest NASCAR race with fellow fans, his larger than life attitude as well as his infectious laugh made a lasting impression on everyone he met. To say that Matt was hardworking would be an understatement; he devoted his life to his work, and would offer a helping hand to anyone in need. The sight of him in his “big yellow truck” will be greatly missed!

Matt was preceded in death by his father Donald Hoese.

Matt is survived by his loving family: son Clay Hoese of Watertown; daughters Kiley Hoese (fiancé Beau Schmidt) of Watertown and Madyson Hoese of Watertown; mother Karen Hoese of Mayer; sisters and brothers-in-law DeAnn and John Danowski of Phoenix, Arizona, Patty and John Farber of Waverly, Jackie and Kenny Swartzer of New Germany; uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews other relatives and friends.

Arrangements are with the Johnson Funeral Home in Waconia,
