Matthew W. Oaks

March 21, 1974 ~ August 31, 2021 (age 47)


It is with intense sadness and broken hearts that the family of Matthew Oaks announce his passing. Matthew was an amazing son, father, brother, and friend.  He had a heart of gold and a personality to match.  He fought a hard fight but succumbed to complications of diabetes on Tuesday, August 31, 2021 at his parent’s home.

Matthew was born in Peru on March 21, 1974 and leaves behind four sons, Chris, Cody, Cason, and Cayden as well as one grandson Cohen. His boys were his everything, his reason for fighting a good fight. He also leaves behind his mother and stepfather, Linda and Bob Brenner, brother, Brian Oaks and his wife Lynn, and sister, Tiffany Egan.  All those who knew and loved him are truly better for having had him in their lives.  His light will always shine and his spirit will live strong in our hearts and minds. 

A celebration of Matthew’s life will be held at Maconaquah Park on Sunday, September 5, 2021 at 11 a.m.  The celebration will be located at the lower park area, Shelter 1 East and West, accessible from Strawtown Pike.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Flowers-Leedy Funeral Home. Family and friends may sign the online guestbook at
