Matthew Steele Obituary

Matthew Russell Steele, 40, of Idaho Falls, passed away May 12, 2018, near Heise, Idaho, of injuries received in an ATV accident.

Matt was born Sept. 18, 1977, in Idaho Falls, to Larry Russell Steele and Denice Lamont Steele. He grew up in the area and graduated from Fairview High School. He loved working with his hands and as he grew up, worked a variety of jobs.

He enjoyed cars; all aspects of them. His passion was riding his ATV year-round and would put tracks on it during the winter. He was always willing to help come drag someone's snowmobile or ATV out of the forest. Matt loved camping. If he could've lived in the woods as a mountain man, he would have been very happy.

Matt is survived by mother, Denice Lamont, of Idaho Falls; father, Larry Steele, of Idaho Falls; and a brother, Skip (Lori) Steele, of Idaho Falls.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents and two cousins, Brett and Shane Lamont.

A celebration of life for Matt will be held Saturday, May 26, from 2-5 p.m. at 1950 Sunflower Circle in Ammon. Arrangements are under the direction of Wood Funeral Home East Side, 963 S. Ammon Road.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to Shriners Hospital, 1275 Fairfax Road and Virginia St., Salt Lake City, UT 84103. Condolences may be sent to the family online at www.woodfuneralhome.com.
