Matthew "Matt" Jeremy Ammerman

December 22, 1981 ~ September 21, 2020 (age 38)


Matthew Jeremy Ammerman was born December 22nd, 1981 in Deer River, MN to Jerry and Phyllis (Shaw) Ammerman.  He passed away in Akeley, Mn on September 21, 2020.

Matt lived in Remer Minnesota and attended school there until the 2nd grade when the family moved to Walker, MN.  Matt graduated from Walker High School in 2000.  He played football in school and was a very avid hunter and fisherman.  Matt loved the outdoors and usually had jobs that kept him outside.  He worked as a groundskeeper at the golf course and many years as a landscaper.  Matt loved to use his hands to make things out of wood.  He liked to get motors to run and fix things.  Matt spent a few years as a directional driller and enjoyed the daily challenge.  Matt also ice raced for a few years, which became a family affair.

Although Matt was a big man, his stature was not as big as his heart.  He gave freely to anyone in need and tried to help anyone he could.  Matt truly did not realize how much he meant to everyone, he will be deeply missed by all.

Family that Matt is reunited with are his father, Jerry Ammerman; grandparents, Clarence and Josephine Ammerman and grandfather, Robert “Bob” Shaw.

He leaves behind his mother, Phyllis Ammerman of Akeley; sister, Linsey Ammerman of Remer; brother, Jeremy (Cindy) Ammerman of Backus; niece, Jessica Ammerman of Backus; grandmother, Lois Shaw of Remer, many aunts, uncles and cousins mostly of Remer and his very special friend – his dog Aggie.
