We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Dysart - Cofoid Funeral Chapel
Matthew Blaine Haage, 19, of Granville passed away on July 23, 2022 at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, Peoria with his loving family by his side.
The family will have a private service. Cremation rites have been accorded.
Visitation will be from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 30, 2022 at Dysart – Cofoid Funeral Chapel, Granville.
Matthew was born on March 3, 2003 in Peru to Dink and Tracie (Wilson) Haage.
He graduated from Putnam County High School and worked as a CNC operator at Mennie’s Machine Shop. He also worked at Riverfront Machine in Spring Valley and at Axline Pharmacy in Granville.
He went above and beyond as a neighbor and a friend, making himself available and volunteering to take on tasks that lightened the load for others. Matthew was the kind of young man that would literally give others the shirt off his back if it made your life better or easier. He was an outdoorsman with a deep respect for nature. He loved animals, especially dogs, and you could see it in the way he treated and played with them.
Matthew was an amazing person who will be dearly missed and never forgotten. He continues to serve others and make his family and friends proud with the gifts and opportunities for longer and healthier lives that his body will provide.
Survivors include his parents, Dink and Tracie Haage; one brother, Jonathon Dubach; two sisters, Ashlyn Haage and Rhyanne Haage; maternal grandmother, Gwen Bray; paternal grandparents, Bill and Sheila Haage; one niece Liliana Dubach and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Larry Wilson; great-grandparents, Jim and Mary Bray, and Blaine and Bessie Clancy and one aunt, Amy Eichenseer.
