A celebration of Matt’s life will take place Friday, June 21 at 1 p.m. at the Harvest Church, 3720 Birch St. in Baker City. Friends are invited to join the family for a reception immediately following, also at the church.
Matthew was born on Dec. 28, 1992, at Baker City to Linda (Streeter) and Mark Doud. He was raised and educated the majority of his life in Baker. He moved to Joseph, where he graduated high school as an Eagle with the class of 2011. Matthew intended to join the Navy, but upon the entrance exam it was discovered that he had developed thyroid cancer. Matthew was successful in his fight to become cancer-free.
He enjoyed camping and hunting with his dad and grandma Kathy, picking huckleberries and special outings in the woods with his mom, brother and grandma Bertina. Matthew cherished family gatherings, playing games, and having lots of laughter. He particularly loved eating his Grandma Bertina’s cooking! He also enjoyed football and basketball, earning a letter in both.
Matthew loved the Lord Jesus, his family and friends. He was notorious for inviting people to church and bringing them along with him to Sunday service.
Matthew had a kind heart. He was a friend to many and loved by all. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
“We love you, Matthew,” they said.
He is survived by his mother, Linda (Streeter) Culbertson and stepdad, Howard Culbertson; his father, Mark Doud; his brother, Tristian Streeter; his grandmas, Bertina (Streeter) Eastman and Kathy Doud; and numerous extended family members.
