It is with great sadness that the family of Matthew George Vickery announces his passing, having been involved in an ATV accident on July 14th 2018.
Matthew was born on a hot summer day on July 14th, 1989 in Ogden Utah to Mark Robert and Margaret Irene (Thoman) Vickery.
As a young boy growing up fast, Matthew was known by many as either “Matty” or “George”. He loved to work hard, especially if he knew it would benefit someone else. If there was any time left in the day or week, he spent it outside no matter the weather or season. He learned at a very young age to love family, hard work, serving others and embracing the beauty of our great nation. If you knew “George”, he had probably helped you in some way. You may have even been fortunate enough to participate in some kind of outdoor activity with him, or you would have at least heard about it later!
Matthew was kind, sensitive, and could light up any room with his bright, gorgeous smile. He had a huge heart and shared it with everyone. The day he met Emilee Paige Hinson, she took his heart and filled it to the brim, making Matthew happy and completely in love. Matt and Emilee were engaged to be married on September 8, 2018. They were making big plans, having great expectations, and living the dream.
Matt is survived by his fiancé Emilee Hinson, parents Mark and Margaret Vickery of Kemmerer, Wyoming. Siblings: Michelle Gurney, Melissa Lawson, Michael Vickery, Monte Vickery and Madison Vickery. Grandmother, Bernice Thoman. Along with many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
He was proceeded in death by grandparents: George Melvin Vickery, Lorraine Vickery, and Virgil Henry Thoman. As well as his cousin Anton John Elmlinger.
Services will be held on Friday, July 20th, 2018 at the LaBarge LDS Chapel, 11:00 AM. A viewing for his family and many friends will be from 9:30 to 10:45 AM. Family Prayer will be at 10:45.
