Mathew C. Vreeman, 43, passed away unexpectedly June 4th on the family farm in rural Preston, MN. Mat was born May 21,1977 in Rochester, MN to Konnie E. Vreeman and Paula A. (Lockwood) Vreeman. He graduated from Kingsland High School in Spring Valley in 1995. Mat was united in marriage to Carrie D. Beckendorf on September 11, 2004 at Cherry Grove United Methodist Church and later divorced.
When Mat was younger he worked for Bob Keim Farms, O'Connell Excavating and T.D. Fetterly Building Company. For the past decade Mat was owner operator of Vreeman Crane Services. Mat was a proud American and was known for his vast collection of guns. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, riding his 4-wheeler, wrenching on trucks, camping down at the creek, and hanging out with his friends and family sharing many stories. Mat was a good friend to all he came in contact with. He never liked seeing anyone sad and always had a kind word or joke to tell to bring a smile to their face. Mat will be deeply missed by all.
