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.
