Diehn American Legion Post, holding many leadership positions and receiving multiple awards for his service.                                                                                                                            He was preceded in death by his adoring wife, Barbara, and youngest son, Matthew “Wesley.”                                                                                                                                        Matthew is survived by his loving sons, David (Diana) and Keith (Angie) Dallas; granddaughters Dana Dallas, Brandy (Jeff) Elliott, and Leara Dallas (Eric Schuler); 4 great-grandchildren; brother, Pendalis Dallas, and sister, Ruth Herzberg; and many beloved nieces and nephews.                                                                                                                                              Family and friends may call at the Reeb Funeral Home, Sylvania, Thursday, April 28, 2022 4-8:00 P.M. where funeral services will be held Friday, April 29, 2022 at 1:00 P.M.  Interment to follow at Ottawa Hills Memorial Park.  In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Marine Corps League or a charity of the donor’s choice.  On-line condolences may be made at reebfuneralhome.com
