Matt was a “Man’s Man”, enjoying fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, riding his Harley and collecting and restoring antique tractors and Oliver memorabilia. Matt loved tractor pulls and participated in pulls both locally and afar where he often placed. Matt worked hard, played hard, and loved deeply. Tuesday night, “Voss Night” was always a highlight for family, friends and neighbors.

Matt was a hard worker proud to be a patternmaker like his Dad, he worked at Midfield Pattern in Walcott, Iowa
