Matthew William Zoost, Age 61, passed away on September 17, 2020 in Lakeland, FL. He was born on November 16, 1958 in Libertyville, IL to Myron and Virginia Zoost. Matt was a mechanic and loved to be in his garage. He helped anyone he knew with the mechanical troubles they had and never asked for a dime. Matt followed in his father’s footsteps and became a truck driver and Matt gave 110% on the job. He liked to watch NASCAR. He bought an RV and redid the entire camper to meet the needs of his wife, Carol and himself so they could escape when they wanted. Everything that Matt did he did for Carol. His sister-in-law Barbara helped Matt and Carol over the years, and traveled with them and they both plotted to do extra special and unexpected things for Carol.
Matt landed his dream job in working for Disneyworld in Florida when he and Carol relocated to Lakeland, Florida.
Matt was a mechanic at heart, he built his own garage into an amazing man cave, from a fridge to a/c and he was still able to tinker with motors and cars as he wished out there. He was always developing ideas to make his work easier. He could see the inner workings of a machine just by looking at it and would fix and/or modify the machine.
Matt is preceded in death by his parents and sister, Martha Zoost.
Matt was survived by his wife of 40 years Carol Zoost; brothers, Edwin Zoost, Eric Zoost, Michael Zoost(Annie Bo Banie); nephews, Matthew Zoost and Osten Zoost; niece, Cheryl Pritchard (Kevin); and his sons (fur babies), Teddy and Charlie; sister-in-law, Barbara Maguire (Mike).
