Matthew Joseph Stobbe

August 22, 1976 — April 28, 2024

Matthew Joseph Stobbe, known to everyone as Matt, passed away in his home due to sudden health issues, in the early morning of April 28, 2024. He was 47 years old. He was born on August 22, 1976 to Joseph William Stobbe and Cleo Westmoreland Stobbe in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was the third of seven brothers. He graduated from Skyline High School and the University of Utah. Matt served an honorable LDS mission in Houston, Texas. In 1998, he married Shannon Plowgian Stobbe and together they had three beautiful children, Daisy, Anna and Lucas.  

Matt loved the gospel of Jesus Christ, read the scriptures daily and cherished his time serving as Elder’s Quorum President, YSA Advisor and attending the Salt Lake Temple. Camping, fishing and golfing were evidence of his love for the outdoors, and as a youth became an Eagle Scout. Even just taking his dogs adventuring made him happy. He always looked forward to the Annual Stobbe Golf Tournament and never missed the opportunity to flaunt his victories to his brothers.  

Matt enjoyed life! He had a contagious, giggly laugh and loved sharing engaging stories, or his latest bright idea. Notorious for listening to great music, a little too loud, or bombing down hills on a sled, a little too fast, that same enthusiasm and zest for life was shown on the sidelines of many Utes games. He was there for his brothers and friends growing up when they needed a partner in crime or a trusted confidant. He knew how to find the positive in every scenario and if something didn’t work out, he used his sense of humor to ease the situation. Matt was charming, fun, and charismatic. From a young age he was able to make friends easily and could converse with absolutely anyone. This made him a great salesman.  

Despite the challenges Matt faced in this life, his love for his family was pure and unwavering and he was very proud of his children and their accomplishments. Above all, Matt would want us to find the humor in life until we meet again. 

Matt is survived by his family Shannon, Daisy, Anna, and Lucas Stobbe. His parents, Joseph and Cleo Stobbe and his brothers, Aaron (Natalie) Stobbe, Creed (Lindsey) Stobbe, Tanner (Jamie) Stobbe, Preston (Tara) Stobbe, Jordan (Leslie) Stobbe, Nate Stobbe, Larry and Nancy Plowgian, Leslie Plowgian Schwendiman, Rob (Angie) Plowgian, Jeff (Tara) Plowgian, Kristin Plowgian (Zach) Nelson and many nieces and nephews.
