Garry Neal Matthews


Garry Neal Matthews, 67, of Owensboro, passed away Saturday, September 9, 2023, surrounded by his loving family while at the Heartford House, under the care of Hospice of Western Kentucky. He was born April 5, 1956, in Owensboro, to the late John and Anna Mae Matthews. Garry loved the Lord with all his heart and that was his biggest passion to talk about to others.

Garry is survived by his significant other of 43 years, Anna Smith; his two sons, Michael (Heather) Matthews and James Matthews both of Owensboro; a sister, Patricia Lanham of Owensboro; a brother, John (Kathy) Matthews of Linton, IN; sisters-in-law, Carla (Terry) Frost and Terri (Nick) Latham both of Owensboro; many nieces and nephews, particularly Sherry (Mitchell) Garrity and David Matthews; and several very good friends.
