Matthew David Stallbories, 62, of Independence, Missouri passed away peacefully Thursday, June 22, 2023. He was born on July 21, 1960 to Charles Matthew and Helen Lorene (Conwell) Stallbories in Independence, Missouri.
Matthew David Stallbories, or “Uncle Butthead” as he was affectionately known by his family, graduated from St. Mary’s High School in 1978. Matt was a very loving individual who enjoyed helping others and working as a handyman for anyone that needed his talents. He spent his time loafing around his pool, and he was happy to share this time with those around him. He mastered the art of barbecuing and storytelling, and he always had a captive audience for both.
One of Matt’s many titles was Godfather. He was asked to be the Godfather of many children, some being his nieces and nephews. Matt was also part of a very special group of people that provided him with fellowship in which he discovered a new design for living.
During his working career, Matt spent 43 years with the railroad. He retired as a Signal Maintainer. He was also a member of the Brotherhood of Maintenance Way and the Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen.
Matthew is survived by his 4 siblings: Larry Benson of Raytown, Missouri; Robin Bryan of Grain Valley, Missouri; Adam Stallbories and his wife Reneé of Maysville, Missouri; and Nora Martin and her husband David of Blue Springs, Missouri. Matt is also survived by 11 nieces and nephews, 9 great nieces and nephews, and 3 great-great nieces and nephew. He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Kathy Poore.
