Gerri LeRoy Matson, 68, of Jefferson City, was called home to Heaven Tuesday, February 10, 2015, at University Hospital in Columbia, Mo. surrounded by his loving family.

He was born September 16, 1946, in Harlan, Iowa, the son of the late Gordon B. and Ruth Audell (Betts) Matson. He grew up in the Cresco, Iowa and Harmony, Minn. area.

He was a 1966 graduate of Harmony High School and a 1971 graduate of the University of Central Missouri. He wrestled varsity for the Mules and continued his love of sports by teaching and coaching for over 30 years in Mo. and Wyo.

On August 31, 1968, at St. Matthew Church in Granger, Minn., he was united in marriage to his high school sweetheart, Susan “Susie” G. Bestor, who still survives.

Gerri loved hunting (especially in Wyo.), fishing, arrowhead hunting, raising pigeons, all animals, reading about American and Native American history, the St. Louis Cardinals, and the Kansas City Royals and Chiefs. Above all, he loved his family.

In addition to his wife Susie, he is survived by three children, Tara Matson, Kansas City; Lisa (Jay) Ernst, New Bloomfield; Cody Matson (Brodie Barnard), Blue Springs, Mo.; and three grandchildren: Macee, Alisa, and Delainey Ernst. He is also survived by three siblings and other relatives.

He was preceded in death by his parents; an infant son, Matthew LeRoy Matson; and several relatives.

A memorial service was held 11 a.m. Saturday, February 21, 2015, at Concord Baptist Church in Jefferson City, Mo. A lunch and gathering followed the service at the church.

Memorial donations are suggested to the American Heart Association, 915 Country Ridge Dr., Jefferson City, Mo. 65109; or to the family of Gerri Matson.
