Matthew “Matt” E Vega, age 71, passed away on Tuesday, March 23, 2021. He was born February 20, 1950 to Evaristo and Lucy Vega (nee Lopez). Matt was a devoted husband to Kathy Tauben (nee Rausch) and a devoted dad to Tina (Doug), Lynn, Matt, John (Melissa) & Jodi (Terry). He was a loving grandpa “gramps’ to Anthony (Crystal), Cory, Holliy, Brady, Audree, Matthew (Haleigh), Rylan, Evan, Jackson, Garrett and Ian. He cherished his great-grandkids, Landon, Braxton and Aria.

Matt enjoyed putzing in his garage while smoking a cigar “stogie” and watching TV. He prided himself on being a “farmer” of his handful of tomato and cucumber plants. Matt’s summers were spent taking his beloved 1976 Cadillac to car shows with his grandson Ian. Matt and Kathy would take vacations to Florida to visit Tina, slowly turning into snowbirds as each trip grew longer. Some of Matt’s favorite stops included Maria’s Pizza, Omicron “Armitron”, Taco Tuesday at Casa Tequila and Kwik Trip for a big buddy and lottery tickets.

Matt had a heart of gold and would offer to help anybody in need. He was a genuine man and one of a kind. No matter the situation, he was always worried about everyone else and would ask how they were doing. Matt spent some of his time after retirement working at F&S Trucking where he built many friendships and became known as “Mittens”.

A Celebration of Matt’s life will be held on Sunday, March 28th at Parkside Community United Church of Christ in Saukville, WI. Visitation will be from 2-4pm with a service to follow.

Lo siento mucho y los acompaño en sus sentimientos. Solo quería compartir unas palabras alentadoras de Jehová Dios en su palabra la biblia acerca de nuestros seres queridos que fallecieron. ¿Quiénes resucitarán? Jesús dijo que “todos los que están en las tumbas conmemorativas oirán su voz y saldrán” (Juan 5:28, 29, nota). Y la Biblia también dice: “El mar entregó a los muertos que había en él, y la muerte y la Tumba entregaron a los muertos que había en ellas” (Apocalipsis 20:13). Así que igual que Jesús resucitó a Lázaro desde su tumba aquí en la tierra después de tres días así también hará con nuestros seres queridos que han fallecido. Sí, miles de millones de personas resucitarán aquí en la tierra. El apóstol Pablo dijo que “va a haber una resurrección tanto de justos como de injustos” (lea Hechos 24:15). ¿Qué quiso decir? Entre ellos están los miles de millones de personas que no tuvieron la oportunidad de conocer a Jehová. Aunque murieron, Jehová no se ha olvidado de ellos. Adonde dice la biblia que los resucitarán? Salmos 37:29 nos dice: Los justos heredarán la tierra y vivirán en ella para siempre. Como pudieron ver es aquí en la tierra donde resucitarán y vivirán para siempre en ella. De seguro es una esperanza maravillosa para los resucitados y también una bendición para aquellos que sirvan a Jehová y por su misericordia estar presentes para recibirlos. Él los resucitará y les dará la oportunidad de conocerlo y de ser sus siervos igual que Lázaro y otros en la biblia que fueron resucitado aquí en la tierra con el poder que Jehová le dio a su amado hijo Jesús. Desean aprender que es lo que Jehová Dios nos dice en su palabra la biblia para poder estar entre aquellos que recibirán a sus seres queridos descansando en la muerte? Déjenme saber a mi correo electrónico o visitando a y pidiendo un estudio gratuito de la biblia. Con mucho gusto lo ayudaremos.

I had a very brief friendship with Matt and my glimpse of him was one of selflessness, determination and intense love for his family. What an incredibly strong and sweet man. I feel honored to have met him. I am so sorry for your loss. Rest In Peace Matt!
