Matthew James Rocheleau

1967 – 2018


Matt Rocheleau, age 50, completed his walk of life on Sunday, April 15, 2018.  He is predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Wilfred and Helen Mavis Rocheleau; his maternal grandparents, Milton and Hazel Smock; step-son, Tom Masters and cousin, Guy Mitchell.  He is survived by his wife, Joyce Masters-Rocheleau; step-son Rick Masters; daughter-in-law, Joella Masters; granddaughter Cherish Masters;  mother, Kathy Costigan;  Father, Ronald L. Rocheleau; brother, Ronald R. Rocheleau; sister, Robin Johnsick, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews who are mourning his loss.  He has a large and loving family.

Matt (from Monroe, Michigan) and Joyce (from Orange, California) moved to Ocala, Florida in 1993 and made it their home.  Both are life members of the VFW Post 4781.  Matt proudly served his country in the US Navy.  He was a loving husband, brother, uncle, and close friend to so many.  He never met a stranger.  He lived life with a contagious enthusiasm and will be forever in our hearts.

Matt had a passion for cars and is well known for his innovative and unique paint designs.  He was creative and showed a fierce intensity for his work.  Memories of him will continue to bring smiles to many faces for years to come.  He is mourned by us all but we know that our worst day was Matt’s best day as he is now in the arms of our Lord Jesus Christ.

There will be a Celebration of Matt’s Life on Sunday, May 27, 2018 at the VFW Post 4781 (9401 SW 110th Street, Ocala, FL 34478) beginning at 2:00 PM with the VFW Honor Guard presenting military honors followed by a eulogy.

In memory of Matt, in lieu of flowers, please lend a helping hand to a neighbor, a relative or a friend in need.  That was always Matt’s way.  He touched so many lives.
