Matthew T. Dieffenbaugher

June 19, 1995 ~ November 11, 2018 (age 23)


Matthew T. Dieffenbaugher,

Age 23, of Sandyville, passed away Sun. Nov. 11, 2018 from injuries sustained in an automobile accident.  He was born June 19, 1995 in Canton, a son of Kenneth and Karri (Herstine) Dieffenbaugher and was a life resident of the Sandyville area.  Matt was a 2013 graduate of Sandy Valley High School where he was a member of the Prom Committee and was a social butterfly.  If you knew him you were a friend.  He was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Magnolia and was employed as a waiter at the Irish Pub in Massillon and previously had worked at Tozzi’s on 12th and Cibo’s in Waynesburg.  Matt’s humor and sarcastic nature made him a true one-of-a-kind individual, and with one conversation he could make a life long friend of you.  His laughter and contagious smile will be cherished by all who knew him.  He was preceded in death by an uncle, Lance Herstine and a cousin, Andrew Herstine.  Surviving besides his parents are three sisters, Samantha Paul, Jessica Paul, and his twin sister, Melissa Dieffenbaugher; one brother Lucas Dieffenbaugher; his fiancée Savannah Schuckert; his grandparents, Thomas and Karen Dieffenbaugher and Lynn and Paige Herstine; many aunts, uncles and cousins; and his very best friend, Angela. Services will be held Thurs. at 11 a.m. in the Finefrock-Gordon Funeral Home in Magnolia with Rev. Gladys German officiating.  Friends may call Wed. 6-8 p.m. Condolences may be left at:
