Matthew Michael Weber

11/27/1990 - 01/16/2024

Matthew Michael Weber was born November 27, 1990 in Mesa, Maricopa Co., AZ to Michael D. and Catherine M. (Landerfelt) Weber. He died January 16, 2024 in Louisville, Jefferson Co., KY. He was second in his high school class, graduated from Arizona State University, and was a third year dental student at the University of Louisville, School of Dentistry. Prior to dental school Matthew worked for State Farm Insurance on the catastrophe response team and visited many locations throughout the United States. He also worked for Shelter Insurance and was responsible for claims throughout northern Indiana.

Matthew loved life, his family, and his many friends. He was known for his intelligence, quick wit, wry sense of humor, and contagious smile. Matthew never met a stranger and was an engaging personality. He was the light of his parents’ lives and, without fail, made them proud every single day. He was a loving brother, a delightful nephew, an amusing cousin, an entertaining classmate, and a good friend. He was kind and generous to everyone he encountered. Matthew loved a variety of music genres, a vast array of movies, books that told a good story, silly and sometimes ridiculous television shows and multiple stand-up comedians. He was smart and funny and serious and sentimental.

While he was with us, the world was a better place; it has lost a particular brightness with his passing.

He is survived by his parents of Lancaster, OH; his younger brother Jonathan of Glendale, CA; and many uncles, aunts, and cousins. He has left us too soon, will be sorely missed, and never forgotten.

Many people were lucky and blessed to have attended college with Matt Scruffy Weber. Few could amuse an entire room like he could, and none had his ability to listen to boot. Things could be going not so well on the academic or financial side of things, but you wouldn’t know it by talking to Scruffy, and couldn’t know it after being with him for a few hours. He made people feel good about themselves and about life. Rest easy man.


Hey man, I m sorry that you are lost. I read what people have said about you and I m glad your smile and your joy you gave to others didn’t change. I m sorry that we lost touch. Regardless if you would have called or showed up you would have been invited in with open arms. It was who you are your smile.

I had the pleasure to sit next to Matt in lab during the first 2 years of dental school. He was hilarious in every sense of the word. He made everyone laugh and smile with the jokes and stories he had. He was also very compassionate. He was one that would stop what he was doing and take time to listen when you talked to him. Love you Matt…

Matthew was hilarious. He never failed to have a quick-witted comment to make everyone laugh. He was the class clown without even trying. More often than not, something Matthew said or did was the highlight of my day. He had a kind heart & a way of making everyone feel like a friend. His impeccable sense of humor and comedic timing will surely be missed. I was searching his name in my text messages this week hoping to find any memories of Matthew and all of his crazy stories. The one text that sums it up was one I sent my friends last November: “Matthew Weber never fails to make me laugh.” And he never did. To know him was to love him, & we all loved Matt.
