April 11, 1959 - January 1, 2021
Matthew John Degman, age 61, of Hobart, passed away unexpectedly, in his sleep, on January 1, 2021. When not working, he loved to fish, hunt and was a die hard Green Bay Packers fan. He came into this world the same way he departed. Matt lived in Hobart, but his heart was always home on the South Side of Chicago. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather. Matt was extremely proud of his children and he loved his grandson to the moon and back. He worked hard his whole life and was getting ready to retire. Matt collected many things in his life but none were more valuable than his family. He will be deeply missed. Matt is survived by his wife of 39 years-Janice L. Degman (nee Schuster); children-Andrew H. Degman of Chicago; Amanda A. (Chris) Bertrand of Lexington, KY., Alexander R. Degman of Valparaiso; grandchild-Lucas Bertrand; “Brother from Another Mother”-Richard Goldsworthy, Sr., of Hammond. Matt passed away on January 1, 2021 and due to covid restrictions we were unable to provide a memorial for friends and family to say goodbye. Now that the covid restrictions have eased, we are able to offer to anyone wanting to participate in his final farewell. If you knew Matt then you knew that he did not want a memorial but wanted to have a party, so in his memory, the wearing of the Packers color is optional, but not required. Please join us from 3-8:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 8, 2021, at the Hobart Township Community Center, located at 3107 East 35th Avenue, Hobart IN 46342. We will have some of Matt's favorite music, foods and drinks to toast, along with a timeline of pictures and mementos taken during his life, so please honor us with your stories and remembrances. Since Matt's grandson will be joining us (he is too young for the vaccine), I do ask that you mask up in not vaccinated. There is no RSVP but a heads up would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to contact me at (219) 895-0809 for questions or directions. Hope to see you there. Sincerely - The Degman family (Janice, Andrew, Amanda and Alexander). www.burnsfuneral.com.
