Matthew Gage Posey, age 36, of Holland, Texas passed away on Saturday, March 27, 2021 in Jacksonville, Texas. He was born on September 11, 1984 in Fort Stockton, Texas to Keith and Michele Arnett Posey.

Matt moved with his mom and brothers to China Spring in 1990 which became their permanent home. His mom, Michele married Ed Palmer. Matt called him dad. Matt graduated from China Spring High School. He was an all around athlete but most remembered for baseball and basketball. While working a side job at LaFiesta Restaurant, he met Haley, who was working there while furthering her education. The Castillo’s became an active part of their lives.

Matt & Haley married quietly August 19, 2013 and then on March 29, 2014 had a big wedding for all the family. They had three children, Preston 12, Layla 11, and Jolie 7. His family was his pride and joy.

Matt spent years doing electrical work in the oil field. After years traveling away from home, he obtained his Journeyman’s license. Matt got on with Tesla and was finally able to be home with his family every night. His family was always priority and he took pride in his children’s school work and all their extra activities. His hobbies were spending time with family and friends on weekends. Many weekends were spent helping friends when they needed a helping hand. He built a Man Cave where he stored all his tools and built multiple things around the house. Matt loved Baylor, Texas Rangers, and the Dallas Cowboys. You could usually find him with his family, dressed in their attire, watching these teams play on the weekend. Matt is survived by his wife Haley and children Preston, Layla, and Jolie all of Holland, his mom and dad, Michele and Ed Palmer and his siblings, Garrett and wife Krislyn and Dillon Posey of China Spring, Casey Posey and wife Danielle of Victoria, and Madison Vela and husband Chris of Salt Lake City, Utah, his father, Keith Posey of Kingsland, and several aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.

AÑADIR UN RECUERDO

Matt you were such an amazing husband and father. We always looked forward to you at the girls volleyball games coming in and joking always smiling. One of our favorite memories is when we all went to Crawfish Express with our kids and had a great night hanging out. I'll never forget the time the girls had a back to back volleyball game and as usual you, Haley, and the kids all had your team gear on for the game on tv that day and when you realized you might miss the first part not getting back home in time you ran and grabbed a ton of pizza and came back to watch Layla's game instead. We will miss you so much and it was a blessing to have you as a friend to us. You will always be highly respected and remembered for the wonderful person and family man you were. Rest in peace and know your family will be taken care of.
Love your friends,
Stacey & Ashley Kabler

I have known Matt since we were 4 years Old. Matt was an amazing friend and I was lucky to watch that hot headed boy (that would fight with the wall given the right circumstance), grow into this wonderful man. From T-ball to middle school, partying, quite possibly some runs in with the law, college, having children and adults. Breaking up fights, and usually the big goofball couldn’t even tell me what the fight was about. Singing with friends where we would surly butcher the song ‘Paint Me a Birmingham’ EVERY time. I remember yelling at him and some friends because it was 5am and they were living it up on my back porch! What the heck is wrong with yall, up at 5am, just being lost boys. I remember the visit when he went through his first divorce and was not concerned with anything but his baby, all grown up. Matt loved his children. Then he met Haley. Unfortunately, I have not met Haley, but the last several times we talked he undoubtedly would tell me how he had finally met ‘the one’. How amazing she was and how much he loved her. “get your ass to Temple to meet her!” “Bring the kids and your husband and let’s get some food on the grill and hang out” he would say. How I wish I would have taken the time just once for that now. He touched the lives of many around him. Matt would give anyone the shirt off his back. I look at his name in my contacts every day and think…just press call, he will answer, and this will all be a big nightmare that I can wake up from. Instead, I find myself having actual metaphorical conversations with him. He is laughing his but off at me I am sure. And he is grateful for the many people that are wrapping his wife, children, mother, brothers and Ed in their arms. I can’t see the “good” from this yet, but it has been touching to see our small hometown come together to support his family and each other. Until we get to see you again. I love you

I knew Matt from working with him at the Furniture Center. We delivered and did warehouse work as a team. He was a ver hard worker. Although we didn't really hang out together,he was very good hearted and loved his little Preston. I did meet Preston as a toddler. I will never forget Matt. It is a shame that he had to leave us so soon. My condolences to all his family. May you rest in the arms of our almighty savior,my friend.

Matt was a tremendous man that I will forever cherish as a life long friend. I have so many memories with Matt that I wouldn’t even know where to start. He was a huge part of my growing up. Going to school Kinder to Senior year and staying connected after all those years into our adulthood. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, his wife, and his children. He will be missed but will never be forgotten.

My family will never forget Matt. He was one of a kind and I can't count the memories I have of him and Josh. From little kids running the baseball fields and building tree houses together to working jobs together and furthering their friendship everyday. Matt will be very missed by so many but will never be forgotten. We will all see him through the lives of his children. May God be with the Posey family.
