Matthew Sean Deeringer left this earth suddenly on April 7th 2018, to return to our Heavenly Father. He was 56 years old. Matthew was born September 9th 1961 in Pocatello, Idaho to James Michael Deeringer and Patricia Jean Rhiney. Matthew was the oldest of 3 children. After living in San Jose, California 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 of 1979. Together they raised 4 children. Matthew and Marilyn were sealed for time and all eternity on November 10, 1984 in the Bern, Switzerland LDS temple.
Matthew served in the US 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 was preceded in death by his father, Mike Deeringer.
He leaves behind his sweet wife Marilyn Deeringer of Coos Bay, his children: Katie Clark (Darin) of Lehi, Utah. Rachel Rose (Kory) of Vashon, Washington. Seth Deeringer of Vashon, Washington. Michael Deeringer (Natasha) of Lehi, Utah. He also leaves behind his mother Pat Deeringer of Coos Bay, his sister Molly Cox (Fred) of Lakeside, Oregon and his brother Adam Deeringer of Coos Bay. Matthew loved his 6 grandchildren: Sydnie, Stockton and Matthew Clark, Kody and Jayden Rose, and Cloud Deeringer, and they will miss him very much. 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.
