Matthew William Coons

On October 6th 2018, our small community was shaken to the core by a series of events. Twenty lives were changed and our dear Matthew William Coons, 27, of Johnstown, was a victim of this tragic limo accident in Schoharie County, N.Y. He was a kind, loving, “gentle giant” that will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. Matt was born on January 24th, 1991, to Timothy W. Coons and Jill Richardson-Perez in Amsterdam, N.Y. He was a passionate individual who loved life and the art of weightlifting and bodybuilding.

The family invited relatives and friends to attend a calling period from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 13th, 2018, at Fonda-Fultonville Central School District, 112 Old Johnstown Rd., Fonda N.Y. 12068. A brief Memorial Service to follow at approximately noon. More time and opportunity to show your love and support for Matthew’s family will be given after the service. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Ehle and Barnett FFH, Llc 15 N. William St., Johnstown NY 12095. Online condolences and additional information can be found at
