Reception to follow
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Matthew Thomas Bobo, 39, on April 7, 2023 in Newport Beach, California. Matt was a beloved father, son, brother, and friend who touched the lives of everyone he met.
A native of Spartanburg, SC, he was a son of Steve Bobo (Vicki) of Greer, SC and Jan Harris-Fahr (Dave), of Greer, SC.
Matt was a 2001 graduate of Byrnes High School in Duncan, SC, where he was a member of the Band and Tennis Team. Matt was a graduate of USC Upstate where he majored in Business Administration and later worked in retail distribution as a Senior Supply Chain Analyst.
Matt was a movie buff, loved a great cup of coffee, and his greatest passion and enjoyment was to engage almost anyone in a lively political debate which he would be determined to win!
As a youth, Matt played baseball and basketball in the leagues in Spartanburg. However, Matt’s greatest sports interest in those years was martial arts and as a 13 yr old, he earned his blackbelt.
Matt’s passing leaves a profound void in the lives of those who knew him. He will be greatly missed, but his memory will live on through his family and friends, who will cherish the time they spent with him.
In addition to his parents, Matt is survived by his children, Kayley and Alex; his brother, Jonathan Bobo (Mary Beth); nephew, Philip; and niece, Eliza; along with numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
A memorial service to honor Matt’s life will be held on Saturday, May 6, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. at Covenant United Methodist Church in Greer, SC, conducted by Pastor Darren Hook and Pastor Linda Guthrie. A reception will follow the service in the Welcome Center.
