On April 21, 2016, Matthew Allen Hobus was called Home to be with the Lord. Matt was born on July 30, 1979 in Lincoln, Nebraska to proud parents David and Barbara Hobus. Matt was a caring and loving son, and a brilliant man. Matthew graduated from Flathead High School in Kalispell, Montana. He attended college at the University of Montana in Missoula where he graduated with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration. While in college, he worked full time for Baxter Healthcare. Throughout his career Matt also worked for Gateway Computers as a Sales Manager, Vertafore as Senior Sales Representative, and for The Math Works as a cross industry sales Account Representative. Although Matt had many career accomplishments, his greatest passion was his relationships with his family. While working in Bellingham, Washington Matt met Joy Elizabeth Langley and in 2006 they married in Kalispell, MT. Their pride and joy are their 2 sons; Wyatt David (8/2013) and Wesley Matthew (8/2015). While in Washington Matt enjoyed many hobbies with friends and family. Every summer he could be found crabbing on the waters of Birch Bay, cheering on the Seattle Seahawks in the fall, or tinkering with his classic Mustang cars throughout the rest of the year. He had always dreamed of returning to Montana, God's country, to hunt, fish, camp, ski, and explore the back woods with his sons, dad, and brothers. Matt was confirmed in his faith, and Jesus Christ is his personal Savior. His family is comforted knowing that he is Home walking eternally with his Redeemer. He was dearly loved, and will be greatly missed. Job 19:23-27 (NIV) He is preceded in death by grandparents: The Reverend Doctor Robert Hobus, and James & Mary Kaye. He is survived by his wife, Joy, and sons Wyatt & Wesley, parents David & Barbara Hobus, grandmother Alice Hobus, brother Jacob (fiancé Alexandra), brother Paul (wife Alyssa), nephew Robert, brother Micah (wife Melanie), niece Raegan, and numerous aunts, uncles & cousins. Everyone who knew Matt was captivated by his amicable and exuberant personality, whimsical storytelling, and kind, selfless and caring heart - this is how he will forever be remembered. The celebration of Matthew's life will be held at The Church at Creston- Lutheran on Saturday April 30, 2016 at 3 pm (5447 MT-35, Kalispell, MT 59901). Immediately following the service there will be a time of fellowship to share and honor Matt's memory. An account has been established for Matt & Joy's sons, Wyatt and Wesley. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Matthew Hobus Memorial Fund at Whatcom Educational Credit Union or checks made out "In Memory of Matthew Hobus". The families would like to provide memories of Matt for Wyatt and Wesley to learn about their dad as they grow. If you would like to contribute by sharing a story, memory, or picture please send them to Joy's sister, Jennifer Groen:
