Matthew R. Garman, 39

September 30, 2021

Matthew R. Garman, 39, of Lancaster, passed away on Thursday, September 30, 2021.
He was the husband of Kylee A. Kostenbader Garman, with whom he shared 3 years of marriage this past September 29th. Born in Lancaster, he was the son of Timothy L. Garman of Leola and Ann Schober Garman of Lititz.

Matt had been a sales representative for Phillips Pet Supplies in Easton for the past 15 years. He had also previously worked in sales for Super-Dog Pet Food Company in Leola, which had been his grandfather’s company.

He was a 2001 graduate of Conestoga Valley High School.

Matt was a huge sports fan, and devoted his time to coaching and watching his son Logan in youth baseball and basketball. He was an avid collector of sports cards and sneakers, enjoyed a wide range of music, loved to grill, was a Detroit Lions fan, and most importantly loved to just be with his best friend and daughter Mia, sons Bo and Logan, wife Kylee, and his close friends and family. He always knew how to bring a smile to everyone’s face and was known as a jokester.

In addition to his wife and parents, Matt is survived by his children: Logan M., Mia R. and Bo M.; his sister Michelle married to Tom Capizzi of Lancaster, his brother Timothy married to Rhonda Garman of York, and by his maternal grandfather Robert Schober and wife Lisa Schober of Maryland. He is also survived by many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. He is preceded in death by his Grandmother Gloria Campbell Schober.

Friends will be received by his family from 12pm noon to 2pm on Monday, October 11, 2021 at the Charles F. Snyder Jr. Funeral Home & Crematory, 3110 Lititz Pike, Lititz, PA. There will be a Time of Sharing promptly at 2PM for friends to share a special recollection of Matt. His family will greet friends following the time of sharing as well, if need be. In lieu of sending flowers, please consider making a contribution to a GoFundMe account established to support the most cherished thing in Matt’s life…his children at: gofundme.com/f/garman-family

It was a pleasure being a colleague of Matt while working at Super Dog for 7 years. He always had a smile on his face and loved to make others laugh. Every time I ran into him at trade shows and events, he made a point to show me pictures of his kids and talk about them. He will be missed by all. My heartfelt condolences to his entire family.

My deepest sympathies goes out to all that knew Matt.  I didn’t get the opportunity to know Matt as well as I would have liked.   Time wasn’t on our side.    I do have a few memories that I will cherish the rest of my life.  Words that I say or write cannot ease the pain but maybe just knowing we care helps .
