Matthew David DeMars, 50, of Bloomington, Indiana, passed away the morning of September 16, 2017. Matt was born September 22, 1966 in San Francisco, California to David DeMars and Carol Ansley DeMars.

For over 20 years, Matt built a career as a professional songwriter and vocalist/piano player. He shared his musical talent around the country, and most recently in nursing homes and retirement communities in Bloomington and surrounding areas. Music was his work and passion and he also considered his work a ministry.

Matt is survived by his wife of 10 years, Denise DeMars, of Bloomington, Indiana and his son, Matthew David DeMars II of Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Matt is lovingly remembered by his immediate family of Brentwood, California. Parents, Dave and Carol DeMars, sister Julie Moeller and her husband Todd, brother, Doug DeMars and his wife April. His nephew, Tim Moeller, and nieces Rebecca Moeller, Heather Ambuehl and her husband Jordan, Michelle Wake and her husband Tyler.

Matt had an intense passion for music, loved playing Pickleball, especially enjoyed motorcycle rides with his wife and fellow riders, and had a deep love for the Lord Jesus Christ. Matt and Denise are members of Grace Church and Spirit & Truth Fellowship International. There is comfort knowing we will see him again when our Lord returns.
