Matthew K. Schroeder

Matthew K. Schroeder age 37, of New Hope, MN passed peacefully on May 16th, 2022. He is now pain free and in God’s hands.

Born March 15th, 1985 in St. Louis Park, MN to Steve and Lisa Schroeder. Survived by his parents, brother Patrick, sister in law Jess, niece and nephew Haley and Carter, his loving Gran LaVaughn, Paul Nowacki, numerous loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and countless cherished friendships. He was preceded in death by Grandparents Marge and Ollie Poulson and Papa Gerald Ray.

Matthew’s true passion in life was cultivating relationships with anyone and everyone, exemplified by his calling to social work, helping of others and sense of justice. He truly cared for others in a way that was unrivaled and rarely seen. He will be remembered for his love and compassion for animals, especially his cherished dogs Roxy, Betty and Aydan.  He loved his time on the water as exhibited by his many years swimming and time spent up north enjoying the chain of lakes - followed by his favorite requirement of an evening campfire. Above all, he will be remembered for his kindness, generosity, humor, and most of all his love of family.

Our family extends heartfelt thanks to the doctors, staff and wonderful nurses at North Memorial ICU for their tremendous care and compassion for Matthew and our family. He was truly surrounded and cared for by these angels.
