Charles "Matt" Matthew McGary


Charles Matthew "Matt" McGary, 55, of Philpot, passed away April 7, 2023, at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital. He was born in Owensboro, Kentucky on November 20, 1967, to the late Albert “Al” McGary and Sharon Bland McGary.

Matt is survived by his wife of 25 years, Tracy McGary; his children, Bryson McGary and Ashlyn McGary; his siblings, Kenneth McGary of Owensboro, David McGary and wife Yvonne of Philpot, Cheryl McGary Cobb and husband Jared of Nashville; his nieces, Scarlett Cobb, Vivian Cobb; and his nephews, Austin McGary, Kenneth "Andy" McGary and Graham Cobb.

Matt was a graduate of Western Kentucky University and worked many years at the family business, Package Ice Co., and more recently at Kimberly-Clark.  He enjoyed NASCAR, hunting, fishing, playing cards, sports, camping, and traveling, but most of all he loved spending time with his wife and kids.  Matt was soft-spoken, but also loved to engage in a playful debate with those he knew well, sometimes switching sides mid-discussion “just to see if you were paying attention.”  People always knew that if they called Matt, he would drop everything to help – but he was also the kind of person who would find ways to help without being asked.  He wouldn’t hesitate to surprise you with a home-cooked meal, pull out a stuck lawn mower, or change your tire on the side of the road. He was a beloved son, husband, father, brother, and friend.
