John Matthew Hooser

October 31, 1978 — February 9, 2024


John Matthew Hooser, our husband, father, son, and brother, passed from this world on February 9, 2024.  John was born on October 31, 1978, in Murray, UT, to Bonnie and Dayton Hooser, and he was the fourth child of seven.


John was a lot of things.  Big personality, big talker, quick to anger, and just as quick to forgive.  He loved camping and being in the outdoors.  Barbeque was a way of life, and he shared a love of guns with his sons, brothers, and father. John was a collector of fast cars, motorcycles, and big trucks. He was a hard worker and gave everything he had and then some to everything he did.


Above all, John loved hard.  His family was the most important thing in the world, and we all felt it.  He never missed a birthday, he was the first to call, and the first to show you how important you were to him.  John was the best son-in-law anyone could ask for.  Anyone who knew John knew how fiercely he loved his wife Deanna, who was his rock, and their four children. They were his world, and he theirs. Words cannot describe how much he is already missed.  


We are all stories in the end, remembered by the adventures we had, the achievements we made, and the people we loved.  So, make sure that your story is a good one.  Pick up the phone when someone calls.  Make sure that those around you know just how much they are truly loved.  Share your adventures, talk big, forgive fast, and love and live fiercely.


John is survived by his wife, Deanna, and his four children, Riley, Colton, Anthony, and Jessica.  His Mother, Bonnie Hooser, Brothers Randy (Jodie), Billy (Kinda), Ben (Emily) Michael (Brittney), and his two beloved sisters, Christi Sagers (Tony), and Chelsea Blau (Jed).  He is also survived by his wife’s family, whom John was proud to call his.  Numerous nieces and nephews are also mourning the loss of their Uncle John.


A celebration of John’s life will be held on Saturday, February 17, 2024. A viewing will be held from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. with services to follow, at 11:00 am. 

Peterson Dance Hall, 65 S State Street, Fairview, UT.   

John will be laid to rest beside his father at the Spring City Cemetery.


John’s departure comes as a great shock and deep wound, and it is gravely felt by the entire family and countless others who loved him deeply.  The family truly appreciates the support of so many during this difficult time.  We ask that you make contributions, in lieu of flowers to help Deanna and the kids with the financial strain of this unexpected loss.
