Matthew J. Yankovich, Jr. died August 15, 2017. He was 72. He is survived by his sister, Anna Marie Hartman, and her husband Brad.



Matt graduated from Deland High School, Deland, Florida in 1963 and received a Bachelor’s degree from Florida State University in 1967. He served in the United States Army as a lieutenant from 1967 – 1969. He worked for Allstate Insurance Company in Dallas, Texas until his retirement.



Matt loved to fish and walk at his cabin on a lake in eastern Texas and was awed by nature, especially hummingbirds and eagles. He usually had a project going either at his home in Dallas or his lake place and freely helped out other people, including his brother-in-law, with their projects. Matt was a private person but he could get pretty excited when he observed social injustice around him or in the news and it was often the subject of discussion with his family and others.



Matt was a great and much-loved son, brother and friend. The world could use a lot more like him. He will be missed.
